Hoping some kind person might have access to some shipping records for Queensland.
John Robertson Dewar arrived in Mackay on board the "Scottish Knight" in Nov 1882.
He had a child (John Robertson Dewar) in Scotland to Maggie (Margaret) Mackay Ferguson in 1881.
John Robertson Dewar (snr) married Maggie Mackay Ferguson in Mackay, Qld in 1883.
I cannot find Maggie and John Jnr on board the "Scottish Knight" in 1882 so presume that they arrived on another ship so I am looking for the arrival of Mary Mackay Ferguson (aged abt 29) and John Robertson Dewar/Ferguson (aged abt 2yrs) most likely early 1883.
Kind Regards
