Paterson Family
« on: Thursday 21 December 17 16:23 GMT (UK) »
William Paterson, born in Larbert, Scotland on 20 August 1824, married Agnes Aird, born 16 February 1828, in Glasgow on 2 July 1847. They had four known children: William Aird, born 2 June 1848;  Charles, born 9 January 1850; Mary, born 3 January 1852; Agnes, born 3 December 1853, all in Larbert. I have all the baptism records, the marriage record, and the 1851 census.

They emigrated to Australia, where they had five more children between 1859 and 1870. William died in 1899 and Agnes in 1896, both in  Melbourne.

Mary married Charles Harry Blyth and died in Victoria in 1924. I have information about their family.

William Aird Paterson married Martha Grange Fergus in Victoria in 1876 and moved to New Zealand, where he had a very large family. I have information about their descendants.

What I would like to know is what became of Charles and Agnes Jr. Did they arrive in Australia with parents and siblings, or did they die young, before the rest of the family emigrated?

I thought I would start by looking for them in a passenger list but I just seem to go round in circles on the various Australian archives' web sites. Any guidance would be appreciated.

The obit for Charles PATERSON, died South Australia 1933, has him arriving in Australia aged 7 years.

https://www.prov.vic.gov.au/explore-collection/explore-topic/passenger-records-and-immigration/assisted-passenger-lists

Use the passenger site...search word...Merchant Prince....filter.........1858
I think that is your PATERSON family arriving Mar 1858...pages 136 (mother Agnes) and 137
(William 10, Charles 8, Mary 6 and Margaret 2)

If that is your family, I wonder if father William arrived before them?.

Thanks you both so much! Yes, this must be them. The Scots-born children were indeed born in Stenhousemuir in the parish of Larbert.

The famous "Banjo Paterson!" the Oz bush-poet, had his folks origins in Lanarkshire!

Skoosh, are you saying that this "Banjo Paterson" is related to my William Paterson/Agnes Aird? If so, how and if not, how does he relate to this thread?
