Book Review by Elizabeth Janson, 'Coomealla, Tapio and N.S.W. Sunraysia' Compiled by Peter Thompson, 2nd edition March 1999
This book is organized as a Diary, with events grouped in years, look up your birth year to see other reasons why that year is important. The IGI lists (if it is the “right Dugald”) the family of Margaret Johnson wed 07 Oct 1786 to Donald Fletcher at Stralachlan, Argyll, Scotland and son Dugal was christened 14 Apr. 1791 at Stralachan, Argyll, Scotland. Dugald got his qualification as Doctor around 1820, and wed Rachel Woods Sarmon Christened 02 Oct 1793 at St Mary’s Cowes, Hampshire, England, then settled at Dunkeld, Perth, Scotland where the children were born (and christened) Athol Fletcher 12 Aug 1825, George Fletcher 29 Mar 1827, Anne Fletcher 17 Jan 1829 and Elizabeth Fletcher 04 Jan 1831. Dugald Fletcher with his wife Rachel and four children came to Victoria 1840, with Dr. Fletcher serving as Ship’s Surgeon on the Dauntless for the voyage arriving Melbourne on Sunday 16 August 1840. Rachel died 1868, and Dugald died 1869 aged 79 so born c1790. But nowhere have I been able to discover which of Dugald’s sisters came to Australia to visit the family. He had 3 to choose from — Jean Fletcher 07 Sep 1787, Catharine Fletcher 11 Apr 1789, or Helen Fletcher 06 Jul 1793.
