I think Joseph came to Australia in 1857 on a ship called the David G. Fleming. . He came a month before ny great grandfather William McKean. And that seems odd.

No one can find evidence of where he went. I don't know the basis for the story of a fight, but something must have happened.  His younger brother Robert who died in 1927 was a wealthy man and he left money to most family members but no mention of Joseph.

I would like to hear more.

Hi I don't have any information of Joseph but am searching for information on William. I think he may have been my GGG Grandfather. As I am also a McKean and my family also lived in Warrnambool.

Hi Alison and Mandy,
Thanks for the info on Peter Mandy. I don't know what the fight was about either. If either of you want to contact me look me up on Facebook under Kenneth Ian McKean.
Cheers :)
Ken
