Re: David Ferguson Greig

Not assisted to NSW.

Quote:
Firstly, his mother is shown as Mary McArthur, but in his marriage certificate to Bridget McCloskie, his mother is shown as Sarah McArthur.
Secondly, he died in 1927, and his death certificate states that he was in the State of Victoria for 76 years ...
If that is correct I can't see arrival to NSW or Vic.


The Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald Birth, Death, Marriage database has five early intimations from Australia, but none that help.

David had an older sister Sarah ??


Several trees but none have arrival or deaths of parents.

Re: David Ferguson Greig

This is from his post on a local forum, so I have no idea if events are as stated. As Dave says Sarah was older?


I am looking for information on John Greig, and his wife Sarah McArthur. John was born about 1821 in or near Lanarckshire Scotland. Their son, David Ferguson Greig was born in about 1847 either at Saltcoats or Ardrossan. John with his wife and their son David Ferguson Greig (then about 3) emigrated to Australia, probably about 1851. They arrived in Adelaide where their daughters, Elizabeth and Sarah were born in the middle 1850s. I can find no record of John or Sarah's deaths in Australia, which is rather puzzling. Their son, David, is my great grandfather, and he died in Victoria, at the age of 79. His death certificate stated he was in Victoria for 76 years, and was born in Saltcoats, so clearly he could not have come out to Australia at age three by himself. Nor can I find any evidence of John, Sarah or David in passenger lists to Australia.

Re: David Ferguson Greig

Ellie, I think the John Greig who died in SA arrived much later that 1851.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/207686597?
The Adelaide Express (SA : 1863 - 1866) Mon 11 Jan 1864 Page 2 SHIPPING NEWS.
ARRIVED.
Saturday, January 9—Northumberland, ship, 812 tons,
David Millar, Master, from London, September 14;
Plymouth, September 26. Elder. Smith, and Co., agents.
Passengers—Dr. George Gregory, Surgeon-Superintendent,
and Mrs. Gregory, in the cabin; and tne following Govern
ment immigrants in the steerage:-
...
John and Sarah Greig, ...


I've checked again - No David Greig on assisted or unassisted list to Victoria.

Death 1872 Book/Page 49/280 GREIG John - undefined= no spouse or parents or any relation recorded - district= Clare

There is something wrong with the story but where?

Dave
