I first began this site 16 July 2007, and this revision began 18 Dec 2013 as my 76th birthday present given to you.
The Site is being rebuilt, with two indexes - ships listed per year, and people in alpha order, combining details.

Lawrence Ormond Butler wed Tues 31 Dec 1839 to Agnes McPherson, witnesses Henry Leigh, James Sinclair and Alexander Martin by Special License with Rev James Forbes Presbyterian
One reference suggested Agnes is the only dau of Captain John MacPherson of the 76th Regiment of Foot, but this does not have any support in another web site - Laurence Butler and following chapters, which reveal his first wife Catherine Gorman died 6 Dec 1838 in Sydney, dau. of Thomas Gorman. Agnes died about 1845, without issue.
