From Margaret Grierson Born 3 Jun 1817 at Troqueer, Kircudbrightshire, Scotland. The birth of her daughter Mary names the birthplace and Margaret's marriage as at Curriestanes, which is very near Maxwelltown, Troqueer, Starryheugh Farm and Cargenbridge, all significant places for the family. Bapt 8 Jun 1817 at Troqueer, Kircudbright, Scotland (ref IGI record and Troqueer Register). Marr 24 May 1839 at Dunscore, Dumfries, Scotland (ref IGI record), to William GRAHAM, born c1817 at Annandale, Scotland. Also recorded as being married at Maxwelltown on her DC. The birth certificate of daughter Mary gives the marriage as being on 24 May 1840 at Curriestanes, Dumfriesshire. This date appears to be wrong as ScotlandsPeople has the marriage on 24 May 1839. Ref 1841 census. Lanarkshire, Scotland. Parish of Glasgow St Marys. Address: King St Clase 48, Glasgow. Together with her sister Jane (Broadfoot) and family: Margt Greirson. Female. Age 20. Born Scotland. William Graham. Male. Age 20. Born Scotland. Margaret and William emigrated from Greenock to Victoria in 1842 as assisted passengers on the 'Robert Benn' (see shipping record). The will of Mary Burgess refers to Margaret and William Graham of Arthurs Creek, farmer in 1864. At the birth of daughter Mary in 1858, the previous children were listed as 1 living and 11 dead. The names and place in the records of the birth of the first two children (in the IGI) strongly suggest their connection. Presumably the first two children had died by the time of the 1841 census. Williamina's mother's surname has not been found in the records but it seems likely that she belongs to this family. She would have been the only one living past childhood, although she is not mentioned in Margaret's death certificate, perhaps because she was already married and living elsewhere. Margaret died 31 Mar 1864 at Watery Gully, Diamond Creek, Victoria, Australia (Vic reg 3506), buried at Diamond Creek Cemetery (Protestant). The inquest verdict was "cause of death not known, not sufficient evidence to prove cause". She had a tragic life. No will/probate was found.
