Emigration from Scotland to Australia- James Morison
« on: Monday 15 August 05 03:44 BST (UK) »
I am looking for a James Morison forn November 4 1832 Burntisland, Clackmannanshire who emigrated to Australia.  He married Elizabeth Young (born 5 September 1851 in Kilwinning, Ayrshire) in the Scots Church, Melbourne, Victoria.

Any information would be much appreciated regarding Scottish origins, passenger lists or information in Australia.

Many thanks

Do you have the information of the children born in Australia? Andrew Henry James and Mary.

Elizabeth and James married in 1857, so I would assume Elizabeth was born earlier than 1851?

There is a James on the unassisted immigrants to Vic list 1852, who arrived with father James, who could be yours. (ages not given).

There is also a possiblity for Elizabeth, arriving alone in 1853 - no age given.

i began this thread a long time ago and apologise for placing Burntisland in the wrong county.  I know it is in Fife.

Elizabeth Young was born in Pattertown,  Kilwinning 5 September 1831,

I know of the following children of James Morison and Elizabeth Young.
Helen Garnoch Morison, Alexander Morison and Henry Morison.

Helen Garnoch Morison born 2 August 1858 in Collingwood, Melbourne, married Thomas Hamersley in 1881 and died in Alphington, Melbourne on 12 September 1934.
Alexander Morison born 10 February 1860 Collingwood, Melbourne and died 2 November 1928 Clifton Hill, Melbourne.
Henry Morison born 18 February 1862 in Collingwood, Melbourne,Victoria, Australia.He married on 15 October 1890 to Alice Rosa Whitcher and died 29 January 1947 in Parkville,Melbourne, Victoria.
