They write
Just in case you are interested in additional info I provide the following Lillingston info that puts the family into Victoria well before the current date you have. Daniel's wife Jane, may be related to one of the two WATSON's listed on your site. One of her brothers was William WATSON born about 1814

Daniel William Lillingston, son of Daniel was born Abt. 1826 in England, and died 1916 in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.
Daniel enlisted in the 99th Foot Regiment on 16.6.1842 & was discharged in March 1850 in Hobart Town. He may have travelled to Australia on board the North Briton.

John Joseph Crabtree has an account of their arrival in South Australia, in his FirstFamilies2001 entry
Life in Australia:
James Munro Linklater who came from a family long located in Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, north of Scotland, was born on the 25 January 1809 and wed Elizabeth (Mary) Flett also from Kirkwall on the 28th January 1839. On 26 September 1839, they set sail on the 450 ton barque `Indus`, captained by John Macfarlane. James Linklater's two sisters and their husbands, W Flett and H A Crawford, his brother William Robertson Linklater, one sister of Mary Loutit and Jennie the maid accompanied them. Soon after leaving the home port of Leith and when off Montrose the `Indus` "ran aboard a schooner", with the result that the bowsprit, cutwater and figurehead were carried away, and she was obliged to put back for repairs. She arrived at Glenelg on 26 February 1840, five months to the day from the date of her first departure. The `Indus` discharged her cargo at Glenelg (Holdfast Bay), including merchandise for Mr Linklater who had the intention of setting up a grocery establishment in partnership with his brother-in-law, Mr W Flett.
Mr Linklater had to walk to Adelaide at a time when the press was appealing to newcomers not to judge of the colony's capabilities by the discomfort of a tramp from Glenelg to the Capital in the middle of a hot day. Apparently a "scampish broken down Attorney's Clerk" had intruded himself on board a ship in the bay, and so flabbergasted the emigrants on board with his account of the state of things on shore that some of them made up their minds at once to go elsewhere. Mr Linklater was not so easily scared, although conditions were primitive enough. His wife had to be carried ashore, and she and her husband and entourage lived on the sand hills for a time. Mr Linklater and Mr Flett used to take watch and watch about at night in order to protect their goods from thieves.
On arrival in Adelaide James Munro Linklater and his brother-in-law, Mr W Flett, set up as wholesale and retail grocers, first in Currie Street a few doors west of Light Square, then in Hindley Street near Morphett Street, and eventually further along Hindley Street four doors from King William Street. Mr Flett`s place in the partnership was subsequently taken by another brother-in-law of Mr Linklater, Mr Hugh Archibald Crawford. They also had premises in Gilbert Place. The business prospered, but Mr Linklater always had the desire to enter pastoral pursuits, and in the early sixties he and Mr Crawford chose the Streaky Bay district as an outlet for their newfound activities.
