from Web page, Sarah Susanna Bunbury was the eldest of the three children of Robert Clement Sconce, a naval secretary, and his first wife Sarah, née Knox. She grew up in Kent and at Malta, marrying Captain Richard Hanmer Bunbury in England in 1838. When their son Harry was a year old the family left for Port Phillip (Melbourne) in the Argyle, bringing a nurse for Harry. Sarah gave birth to her second son, Cecil, on the voyage out, her sister-in-law Elizabeth Catherine Sconce and a fellow passenger, Georgiana McCrae, assisting at the birth. Sarah used her watercolour sketches to document her family's travel and life experiences and share this with her family in England

Directory 1847 settler at Brothers' Creek Gipps Land
From Hugh Buntine and Mary Symington (who died 1838 of Typhus soon after the 497 ton barque "William Rodger" in Sydney quarantine station) were married on 4 Nov 1825 in Fenwick Ayrshire Scotland. Children were: Jane Symington Buntine 12 Mar 1826, John Buntine 26 Oct 1827, Robert Buntine, Mary-Ann Buntine, Hugh Symington Buntine, Alexander Buntine.
Hugh and Agnes Children were: Albert Alexander Buntine, William Addle Raymond Buntine, Agnes Adamson Buntine, Sarah Wallace Buntine 1849, Kate Buntine, Isabella Buntine.
In the Australian Dictionary of Biography, Agnes Bunting nee Davidson (c.1822-1896), pastoralist and bullocky, was born at Glasgow, Scotland, eldest of six children of John Davidson, crofter, and his wife Sarah, née Wallace. Agnes Davidson married Hugh Buntine.
Hugh Buntine (1803-1867), a former neighbour at Little Netheraith, Ayrshire, who had emigrated in 1838 with his wife Mary and five children. Mary had died of typhoid in Sydney quarantine station and Hugh had moved to Melbourne, purchasing farming land on the Richmond Flats. In April 1840, when the Davidsons arrived in the barque, Glenhuntly, Buntine arranged employment for the parents. Agnes worked locally as a dairymaid then married Hugh Bunten on 30 October in Melbourne with Presbyterian forms.
Agnes Davidson (c.1822-1896), pastoralist and bullocky, was born at Glasgow, Scotland, eldest of six children of John Davidson, crofter, and his wife Sarah, née Wallace. The family left Scotland in December 1839, probably at the urging of brick and tile maker Hugh Buntine (1803-1867), a former neighbour at Little Netheraith, Ayrshire, The Buntines established a dairy farm on Merri Creek then, attracted by the prospect of fertile land in Gippsland, they built a hut near Port Albert in July 1841. In September Agnes gave birth to Albert, thought to be the first white child born in Gippsland. After running cattle and a small inn at Morris Creek, outside Tarraville, by 1845 the couple established Bruthen Creek station—almost 8000 acres (3240 ha). Five more children were born between 1843 and 1855 (only Sarah Wallace Buntine was christened when a church was established in the area).
By 1858 they had moved to a farm at Flynns Creek, near Rosedale. Hugh was ill, then died in 1867. On 17 February 1873 at Sale, with Presbyterian forms, she married 29-year-old Michael Dawe Hallett, an English-born farmer, and retired as a bullocky, the couple continuing to farm at Flynns Creek. Agnes died on 29 February 1896 in Gippsland Hospital, Sale, survived by her husband and by one son and three daughters of her first marriage. Hugh Buntine 1803-1867 came from Little Netheraith, Ayrshire. He wed his second wife Agnes Davidson 1822-1896 on 30 October 1840 and in September 1841 Agnes gave birth to Albert, thought to be the first white child born in Gippsland.

Known as an intrepid rider, bushwoman and farm-worker in her youth, Agnes was described in later years as a 'big rough looking woman', eccentrically dressed in short skirts, long leather leggings, thick blucher boots, and a loose jumper adorned by a bright neckerchief.
On 17 February 1873 at Sale, with Presbyterian forms, she married 29-year-old Michael Dawe Hallett, an English-born farmer, and retired as a bullocky.
