I'm looking for family from my forbears Alexander McKenzie McRae born in 1819 in Scotland and died in Victoria in 1899. Alexanders' father was Quartermaster Sergeant McRae (I don't have a first name for him)

His wife Jean MacDonald also born in Scotland and married at Lochalsh in 1850. Alexander abandoned Law in Perth (Scotland)at about 1852 emigrating to Victoria Australia with their first daughter Jean and they settled in the Clunes area doing farmwork and then later he was a school teacher at Glengower.

Jean and Alexander had 8 children,all except Jean were born in Victoria, Australia.
Jean born 1850 (Scotland)
Anne 1852
Betty 1854
Catherine 1856
Alexander Charles David 1858 (my great grandfather)- moved to WA
Margaret 1865
Christina 1862-1863
Roderick 1866

If you have any of these people in your family tree I would love to hear from you.

Hello Jennifer, so pleased to read your post, my great grandmother was Catherine McRae, also known as Kitty, married William Wilson in Ballarat and they lived in the Clunes, Smeaton area in Victoria. I have quite a lot of info on the McReas and maybe you can fill in some gaps for me. Alexander's father was also Alexander and his mother was Elizabeth MacKenzie. Please contact me on marymead@y7mail.com
