James Barclay

From on Mon, 17 Apr 2006

Hi again Elizabeth,
I have some extra information about the above couple you might be interested in. James and Elizabeth actually had nine children. The two you haven't listed were James b.1856 Donegal Ireland and Johnston Blanes Barclay b.1857 at sea on journey to Victoria . James married Annie Williams in 1883 and Johnston married Betsy Smith in 1892. Also James Senior was appointed a police constable in Victoria on 19 April 1858 (Vic.Police Reg.No.126).
Regards, Diane Perry.

And the Assisted Immigration shipping Index has the British Empire came to Victoria Sep 1857.

James Barclay aged 24, Elizabeth Barclay aged 23, James Barclay aged I and Infant Barclay arrived in Melbourne aboard the "Great Britain" having left Liverpool on 16 February 1857. The Master of the "Great Britain" was John Gray and it carried 620 passengers.
