Looking for arrival of Wm and Mary. Wm born around 1800 in Wilton, Roxburghshire and Mary born around 1794 at nearby Hawick. They both die in Marshall Mount, NSW When Wm dies he is aged 77 on 1 April 1876 and his son George says his father has been in NSW 19 years so looking anytime between 1851 and 1858 for them on a ship. Mary dies in October the same year. Their sons Robert, John and James also are in Australia. Robert having arrived first with his wife Elizabeth Wilson. Daughter Ann was transported to Tasmania in the 1850s too for concealing a pregnancy.

It is the arrival of Wm and Mary I am looking for but know it may be impossible. And any mention of William's parents. His death says Robert Turnbull, shepherd and mother unknown. So many trees have Robert Turnbull/Mary Laidlaw but that Robert was a shoemaker and his children all born Hawick not Wilton.
