Just a thought .... possibly a bit odd but, a lot of Scots went to NZ first, and then across to Australia, so it could be worth checking ....

And don't forget Qld. :)

Is Helen the only child of Andrew and Jane? (Wondering if there may be others to look for on immgration records)

If Jane died in 1843, it is possible that Andrew remarried, either in Scotland or Australia.

Great information hurworth. :) (your link is requesting a subscription to view the record)

I don't have a sub for ScotlandsPlaces.  Just reading the transcription.  Sometimes you can see the originals without one though.

In the era of horse tax it would have been difficult to hide your assets in Panama!

For the will Marg will need to make a payment to Scotlandspeople.

Other children showing to Andrew and Jane include:

"Andrew McDowal & Jean Rankine Procld 30th April 1826"

The baptism records of their children in the Kirkcowan OPR were as follows:

1827 "Feby 19 / Dowal Andw Mc & Jane Rankine / Farmer / Drummabrennan / a
lawful Daughter / / Helen Hair"

1829 "May 7 / McDowal Andw Jane Rankine / Farmer / Drummabrennan /
Daughter / / Jane"

1831 "June 8 / Dowall Andw Jean Rankine / Farmer / Drummabrennan / Son /
/ Andrew"

I get the reference now to 'late of Drummabrennan'!

PS: Haven't been able to find them in 1841 so far. There is another Andrew and Jane in area but can't see the right entry yet for them.

Ahh, think I found them in 1841. Andrew not a farmer later it seems. Everyone showing as born outside of the county of Ayrshire (which fits with the family from what we know):

Andrew Mcdowall 59 tollkeeper
Jean Mcdowall 50
Hellen Mcdowall 14
Andrew Mcdowall 10

Address: Dalmellington Chalmerston Burnside Toll, Dalmellington, Ayrshire

I'm sure you're right Annie. I never use FindMyPast for immigrations (well I've not found any of mine or any others on there at least  ::))

Thanks for those children Monica. It is often easier to locate a family group, if they travelled together, which they sometimes did not.

I feel so privileged to have so many helping with my query. Thank you again. I am confident that Helen Hair, Jane and Andrew were the children of Andrew and Jane. I do not know the history of Andrew and Jane but I now believe from family records that Helen Hair(my ancestor) married Joseph Riddell in Ayrshire SCOT and they migrated to Melbourne AUS in 1848 on the Cheapside. Joseph apparently died in 1853. Andrew McDowell migrated alone on the Mobile in late 1853 to assist his then widowed daughter, Helen (later to be known as Ellen).
With your help I have narrowed down Andrew's place of residence in Ayrshire and I can continue the hunt.
