John Carter

See notes for William Mcdonald and his wife Betsy, sister to Mary Sutherland and also lived at Bacchus Marsh

From on Sunday, 21 November, 2010
Hi Elizabeth, You have left Donald Sutherland b 10 Aug 1863 from the list of children to John Carter and Mary Sutherland. Also, the un-named child was William Carter b Aug 1861.
Cheers, Jenny
P.S. The birth certificate of John Carter 19 Jul 1855 at Bacchus Marsh shows that John was 44, born im Manchester and that he married in 1853 in Melbourne, and Mary was born in Caithness.
Jenny wrote on Saturday, 4 February 2012
Mary Sutherland accompanied her sister Betsy who had married William McDonald. At that time William and Betsy had three small children James, Jessie and Betsy.
Mary sailed from Liverpool with her sister Betsy who had married William McDonald. They sailed on 4 July 1852 arriving in Hobsons Bay Victoria on 29th September 1852? on the Marco Polo
No marriage has been found however they were of the Presbyterian faith and the registers belonged to the minister who took the registers with him, where ever he went. Some ended up in the church archives, some in the minister's residence and so on. We don't know when or how John Carter arrived. His death certificate indicates that he arrived in Tasmania. I had all the convicts of that state researched but they were either too old, too young, reconvicted or dead by the time John and Mary had their first child
