Perhaps we have had contact before.
I am hoping that the family of Sophia Hope Johnston will somehow link back to my Johnston family from Tranent and Prestonpans.
I have the middle name HOPE in a few of my  Johnston.
Earliest I have is William Johnston b 1736 app Tranent m Janet Forman 1761.  Children James 1761, George 1763, Jean 1765, Mary? 1768, William 1770, William 1774, Charl? 1776.  First children b Tranent - last 4 in Prestonpans.
Skeldon and Dodds families also link to my East Lothian Johnstons.

I also have a Johnston in my family tree.   ;D

They travelled to Australia.

John Johnston and Jane Johnston were passengers aboard the barque Lochiel.  The Lochiel left Leith in Scotland 13 April 1833 and they arrived at the Port of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia 18 September 1833.    John Johnston's occupation was that of a carpenter.

I would like to find out more information about them.
