In Reply to: My Thorburn's Australian Arrival, Help Needed by Brian Thorburn of 552

Brian, It is possible that the place of birth for this family is incorrect on the shipping list
I was wondering if you knew who any of the children married and maybe I can find some listed birthplaces
I know who Agnes married but no birthplace listed on marriage index for her
James and Janet THORBURN had two more children after arrival in victoria

I checked James death in 1888 and his parents are listed as James THORBURN and Margaret THOMPSON

Do you know when Janet died?

Do you know for sure they were scottish and not irish living in scotland?
