Barbara Stewart/Stuart b. 12 Mar 1851 Paisley High, Renfrew according to one source.
Father: James Reid b. Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland

I think I'd better have a look in SP for Barbara's birth. As usual, I don't know if she came to Australia alone or when she arrived.

Thank you very much. You are about 10 km ahead of me. :2fun:
I was checking IGI but didn't find any of the children. I didn't know Barbara had siblings until you posted the census listing. Yes, it looks like Robert Cuthbertson REID. So we know at least James, spouse Janet, Robert and Barbara arrived before that marriage. I still can't find them in shipping records.
