Hi

I'm not sure how much more info you require or how much of this you have:

There are 3 baptism entries in Kirkcudbright that might fit:

26 Aug 1824 son of John Rae and Janet McClure
20 Dec 1819 son of Alexander Rae and Mary Sim
11 May 1818 son of Samue Rae and Elisabeth Wallace

Also in Girthon:

 31 Dec 1818 son of Nelson Rae and Isabella Porteous

1851 Census
Castle St, Kirkcudbright
Alexander B Rae, 29, cabinet maker, employing 2 men, b. Kirkcudbright
Jessie Ann, wife, 23,grocer,  b. Whithorn, Wigtownshire
Elizabeth Rae, 13, daughter, b. Kirkcudbright
Elizabeth Ross, servant, 19, b. Kirkcudbright

Not sure about the age of Elizabeth. This from a transcription but have checked on the free search on SP and it has her as 13 there. Need to do some further checks.

In 1861, they are still there

High Street, Kirkcudbright
Alexander B, 39, master builder and cabinet maker, emp 4 men and 3 boys, b. Kirkcudbright
Jessie Ann, 34, b. Whithorn


In 1841, there is an outside  possible for him,

High Street, Kirkcudbright
Alexander Rae, 60, Ag Lab
Mary, 55
Alexander, 25, house painter
William, 13
Robert, 10

All born county.

However, the tree has him arriving in Bathurst in June 1859 when he was still in Scotland in 1861.
It's fairly thorough so I think a check on the arrival should be done.

I think the 1859 arrival is incorrect as the source given records him as a Mate.

There is a possible in Toxteth Park, Liverpool on the 1841, which might be worth considering, but I'm not sure at all:

Alexander Rae, 18, b. Scotland
No occupation given . Head of Household is a John Rae, aged 58, b. Scotland

Looks like it could be an elder brother or he changed his name, Trish.
