From on Thursday, 17 June, 2010
Hello,
Duncan McFarlane, so I am told, apparently drowned in a mining accident.
Elizabeth had 5 or 6 children with Duncan McFarlane, one of whom, Euphemia, married Norman McPhie.
My g-g/father, Duncan McFarlane, born c1842, was a brother to Euphemia.
In 1854, Elizabeth, by now a widow, wed John Castley.
Regards,Steve
I had Duncan & Elizabeth arriving on the India in 1839, not 1840, but your date will be correct. I have Elizabeth born in Glasgow in 1819 to parents Alexander (a labourer) and Elizabeth Norris. I have no other information on Duncan Snr other than my mother telling us that he drowned at the goldfields.
Their children ( I have 6) are Duncan, David, Robert, John, Euphemia and James. I think Duncan is the eldest and wonder, looking at my notes if maybe there are only 5 children and one is David Robert. That's a possibility. Euphemia is the only one I have any more information on - she married a McPhee in Adelaide. We must be able to find more out in Australia as Duncan Jnr didn't come to NZ until 1862 and settled in Dunedin.
Duncan Lennox McFarlane went to New Zealand in 1862 when aged about 20, and wed 1875 to Ann Bateman, born in 1850 in Croydon, England, came to NZ in 1874. She was 1 of 13 children ( I have the list) & was supposedly Jewish. Her parents' names were Thomas Bateman & Mary Fagg Bailey. They had 7 children, then Ann died at 40 in Melbourne (they had gone there as a family during the depression of the late 19th century), of typhoid & Duncan returned to NZ with his family
1. Elizabeth Ann McFarlane 1876-1960 - wed Burt, 6 children
2. Louisa Jane McFarlane 1878-1968 wed McBride, known as Auntie Bride, - 1 child
3. Alice Grace McFarlane 1879-1972. wed French, Auntie Al, but I always thought it was Owl, of Flockton St (Cotton was close!)
4. Margaret McFarlane 1881-1959 wed Robinson - 3 children
5. Duncan Lennox 1883-1968 - 5 children
6. Ann McFarlane c1885
7. Ellen Amelia McFarlane c1888 (3 marriages, Preen, Radd, Beyers) - 1 child.

William McFeeters

Have only just found an ancestor and ship he came to Australia on. Although his name is actually McFEETERS William James, he is listed as a passenger by the name of Wm. J. McFEETAR on the ship Algiers, month of June 1857 age 21. Code B. Fiche 126. Page 003. He was Irish so don't know if he came directly from Ireland on that ship or if he would have had to board that ship in UK. Could SKS please give me more info: eg Date and place of departure. Possibly a picture (drawing) of the ship. Does the fiche give more info on a person, rather than just his name and age?
I have the complete passenger list for Algiers but it does not give his wife (Esther Madigan) as sailing with him, and they were supposedly married in Ireland.
Looking for what ever information can be provided on the "ALGIERS", which sailed from Ireland [possibly Newry] on 27 Mar 1857 to Australia. James TRUESDEL was supposedly aboard this ship.
