I'm sorry Sue that I haven't replied sooner but I got sidetracked reading the will etc, which was a

great find on your part. Margaret Jane arrived in Melbourne on the 'Morning Light' 23 Feb 1863

together with Thomas (husband) baby daughter Mary Ann and Margaret's brother Andrew. I have

quite a bit on the Scilley family, though not the will of Margaret Jane so many thanks for that :)

Thanks

I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to reply, but my son and partner arrived from Perth
and as you can imagine I've been flat out.

Thank you so much Cando and Merlin for all that extra information, it is a tremendous help and when I have time to digest it all there won't be much that I won't know.

I appreciate everyone's help, there's no doubt Rootchatters are a wonderful band of helpers.

Many thanks
Joy

Jane Russell and John Black were married here in Northern Ireland on 25 March 1857.  Her father was William Russell, who was my great great grandfather.  I have various Australian photos including one of a young soldier called Scilley.  On the back is written ' My sister Martha's boy Russell'. Is this your connection - The various other Australian photos which were sent to my grandmother's cousin here in Belfast.  I have been trying for years to get an Australian connection!
