Immigration

Following the death of her husband John, Isabella and her family emigrated to Australia. They arrived on board the Ëarl Grey". Jim Fletcher advises: "There's a comment in the entry for Isabella Murray (nee Scott) 1802-66 who married John Murray, which says, "Following the death of her husband John, Isabella and her family emigrated to Australia. They arrived on board the 'Earl Grey'". This is only partly correct. Isabella and 5 of her children (John, Robert, George, Veitch and Walter) did indeed come on the 'Earl Grey' in 1851, which is easily checked on the passenger list for that ship; however, 5 of her other children (Hugh, James, Agnes, William and Thomas) had already come to the colony on the 'Castle Eden' 3 years earlier, in 1848, again easy to check as they are on the passenger list for that ship."
