William FAIRWEATHER b. abt 1827 Angus, Scotland

Rachel McLEOD b. abt 1832 Ross and Cromarty, Scotland

married 12 Dec 1853 Glasgow

Daughter born 8 Jan 1855 in Sydney so...

Arrived in Australia between those dates. ???

It's possible they didn't arrive together if William was one of the crew on a vessel but I don't know why different ages here. If he had a birthday in between it still does not add up.
