I'm happy to help EB  :)  And can photograph others too.

Here is NSW SRO site https://www.records.nsw.gov.au   

If you find any other probates for the family then just shout.   You can just type in their name to the main search box and can qualify with a death year to cut down the results
eg Fred Smith 1935

There is an annoying gap in the online indexes (1891-1927).  If there is a family member who has died in that time frame then I can check on microfiche for a probate when I am there.

I think possibly "Ferchan" could be Farquhar?

Should have added the gaelic spelling "Fearchar"

I have one in my tree recorded as Fergus!

Farquhar being his forename.

This may help....

Good thinking Annie  :)

I found some deaths of Farquhar McDonald which didn't seem to match.   Just tried Fear* without success too.

But it's getting late for us ...

These ancestors arrived from Scotland on the "Heber" on the 27th of July, 1839 (says the info I have in a letter from the Archives Office of NSW)

Did they give you the full information from the immigration records?  The handwriting is atrocious but I agree with the transcription of the entitlement certificate here:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-XHL3-MLP?cc=1542665

There is a note that Findlay appeared older than the stated age of 35, and Theodore McRAE J.P. of Inverness certified that both he and Catherine were under 40.  Findlay is recorded as being 39 on the manifest of passengers.  You probably need to be a bit flexible with all the ages.

Farquhar and Nancy are listed separately as they are over 15 years and 'Farquhar' is spelt that way.  His place of birth is illegible, hers is Ayrshire.

To search and look at the church register images you need to go to ScotlandsPeople

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

The marriage indexed on FamilySearch:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XT5X-X4T

This is probably Farquhar, baptised before the marriage:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XBS3-QW1

You also need to be flexible with names.  I suspect this may be the marriage of Findlay's parents with her surname spelt as MACILLAVRAE:

That's a cracker Dundee  ;D

The more common spellings would be MacGillivray/MacGillivary etc.
