from on Saturday, 11 December, 2010
Lilias Cumming, wife of John Cumming, the daughter of Archibald and Isabel Bell of Dunoon, had a brother, Allan Bell, who in 1900 was living in Melbourne. We have not been able to find anything on him, but perhaps with this new info we may discover more relatives.
I found this death, Lilly Cumming died 1820 - 1876 #2201 aged 56, daughter of Isabella McLean and Archibald Bell.
The Ariadne has a single man, aged 19, from Aryshire, named William Allen. He appears to be called Allen Bell in the Port Phillip list.

From on Friday, 11 July, 2014
Mr JR Bell, and wife are my ancestors who departed (Sydney) Port Jackson 21 January 1839 and arrived Port Philip 29 January 1839 on the 'Abercrombie', on your web page January 1839 Ships
The passengers reported by the newspaper (J. Bell and wife) were actually Increase Robinson Bell, an American tin-smith who emigrated from America/Canada to Port Jackson in 1835 with other tin-smiths who were financed by the famous John (Tinker) Campbell of Queensland fame. In Sydney he married Jane Holford Hill, daughter of the former convict Benjamin Hill. They set up shop in Collins Street. He did some land speculation, was licensee of a hotel in 1842, and then lost the lot. Moved tinsmith business to Geelong and died there in February 1853. Jane his widow, and two surviving children, moved to NSW with her new husband Thomas O'Connor whom she married in Geelong in March 1853.
I have a huge anmount of information on this family's origins and descendants. Cheers
