My family history interest in Victoria includes the following families:
Samuel Scotson (1830-1903) and his wife Martha Wilson Dunlop (1844-1919), who settled in the Fryer’s Creek/Yapeen area near Castlemaine. Samuel Scotson, from Lancashire, England, arrived [via South Africa] on the “Sarah Bell” in 1853 (a ship full of gold seekers) and was a well known gold miner in the area, and had Scotson’s Reef at Mopoke Gully for many years.
Hector Ross (1819-1884) and his wife Christina Ross (1821-1891) who arrived ship unconfirmed [but possibly the “Omega”], about 1856, and settled in the Winter’s Flat/Muckleford area near Castlemaine. Both Hector and Christina Ross were from Rosshire, Scotland. He was a dairyman at Muckleford.
I have just joined GenealogyWise. I am doing the 'Social Media Tools for the Wise Genealogist course', which I am finding interesting.
