Thank you ROSIE7 & FORFARIAN - That's great information!  I need some time to absorb it but the exciting thing is that my Grandmother Jane(Jean) Weir - nee Young(daughter of David & Mary) had a middle name Wishart & my Aunty is also Jean Wishart Drummond (nee Weir) & she has no idea where the name Wishart came from so to me, that is the link. I have an article written in Dunedin paper about David & Jane celebrating their Diamond wedding 1939 & David was 90 & Jane 80 & ship 'Storm Cloud' arrived 30 July 1861 with Young family. Passenger list shows Young/Joseph-wife & family (7) plus a David Young & family (2). No idea if related but probably. Have death records at Portobello for Joseph/Jane plus David & Mary. All very helpful stuff. Thank you both so much.  Can I reply to you individually or is this ok??

Gosh Rosie17 - you have been busy! That's fantastic info & you have definitely cracked it! Based on death date & age, David was 11 yrs when they came to NZ (I thnk I said 6) so the Joseph & Jane Wishart correct family. All makes sense. And solved the mystery of Wishart!  Thanks too FORFARIAN - I think you got it first up. Just don't understand the abbreviations IGI & FS? Bit 'green' at this! ROSIE - can I access Anc....y for that info without signing up?
Thanks so much both of you!
