"John and Isabella were married on 16 March 1855 at Ayr in Scotland and arrived in Sydney on 2 October 1855 aboard the assisted immigrant ship Hilton. The ages recorded on the Hilton were wrong (the couple had unnecessarily put their ages down 10 years to get the assisted immigrant bounty); the ones on the marriage certificate were right. The following details come from the marriage certificate: "Marriages 1855 in the Burgh of Ayr, County of Ayr. At Ayr; March 16th Marriage was celebrated between us (after Banns) according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Established Church of Scotland. (Signed) John Dargavel , Dykehead, Riccarton, age 39, Game? Servant, Bachelor, born at Dumfries, 6 April 1815; father is Charles Dargavel, a mason, and mother is Jane Johnston. Isabella [signed with a cross] Greenshields, her mark, William Dickson, Witness, Thomas Gillies, Witness; Isabella lived at 26 Barns St, Ayr, aged 36, House Servant, Spinster; she was born and registered at Stretton; father is John Greenshields, ploughman, and mother is Jane Ferguson"."
