Same man.  Directories are not always accurate with the information being compiled the year prior to publication.  I've found entries for a couple of ancestors in Victoria after they were both deceased.

Yatala is a parish hundred not to be confused with Yatala Vale, a suburb today.

Wow, so much information in such a short space of time. That'll keep me busy for the day so thank you all very much for your contributions and time spent.
Just to avoid any duplication, I kept what I posted originally to just the Australian part, but I'll list here what I know about the family as a whole:

Parents
Joseph Wellcoat (1842-1887) and Helen Philp (1839 - 1887) died within a couple of months of each other in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

Children:
Joseph (1865 -1892) died in Scotland.
Robert (1867 - 1952) - the subject of my enquiry here.
John Philp (1868 -1948) died in Scotland
Helen (b. 1871) - no idea what happened to her yet.
Catherine Philp (1873 - 1873)
William Philp (1874 -1926) died in Scotland
Mary (1876 -1876)
James Armstrong (1877 - 1931) died in Battersea, London
Elizabeth and Janet (Jennie) - twins born 1878, both sent to Canada when they were 13 having been living in an orphanage. Elizabeth died in 1935 in New Hampshire, USA and Janet in 1962 in Brockville, Ontario, Canada.

Seems like the family fell apart on the death of their parents - James Armstrong was an "inmate" in the 1891 census and as stated the twins were living in an orphanage. I've not long started with this branch of the family, hence the need to finalise certain things but hopefully I will find all I need on scotlandspeople for most of the above. Edit, have amended above with findings.

Once more, thanks for all the information given. I'm now going to make myself a coffee and process it :)
Cheers

Hi there.
Thanks for the information. I did send you a personal message earlier on in the year but in case you didn't get it....
Ok, so in a nutshell:
Back in the 1800s the "original" Wellcoat (Joseph 1842-87) married Mary Philp (1839-87). Mary had a brother William (c.1841-1905) who was my 2nd Gt Grandfather. I can bring the Philp line forward for you if you like, and I've also done a lot of research into the Wellcoats, which I'm happy to share.
Cheers

Thanks for the information. Your William Philp married Isabella Smith and I would love any further information you have on the Philp side. My Philp side goes to William 1777 who married Catherine Bell and although I have names I don't have accurate date of births, so anything you can help with would be great. I have a fair bit on the Wellcoat side and am obviously happy to fill in any gaps you may have.
