Kenneth William Kirkland settler wife Catherine son Kenneth William born 16 Sep 1839 baptised 19 Nov 1839 by Rev James Forbes Presbyterian Katherine Kirkland (web page from cached copy) immigrated to Tasmania in 1838 from Scotland with her husband Kenneth and baby daughter Agnes. Kenneth decided to try his luck in Port Phillip, and squatted at Trawalla near Beaufort in early 1839
Quotes - A hut was hastily erected, and Katherine soon established a garden, planted out with seeds she had brought from Scotland. Kenneth William was born 1839.
In April 1841 bushfires and illness drove them into Melbourne, where for six months her husband served as registrar of the Court of Requests at a salary of 150. Katherine opened a school but because of her health she sailed with the children on 10 September in the Brilliant for Glasgow. Her husband was forced to sell his estate, was declared insolvent in July 1842 and with the help of friends returned to Scotland.

Katherine lived for some time with her mother and in December 1843 her third child, Isabella Christine, was born at Glasgow. She sent her journal to the Edinburgh Chambers Miscellany which published it in 1845.
