  • Name James KEATING  [1
    Born 1825  UK Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • Arrived on Navarino on which the McLeans were travelling. However James would have to be 12yoa if our entries are correct. And that is unlikely until further information comes to light as on the ship he is identified as a victuiller (in 2016 = alcohol licensee). And the ships list seems to suggest that he travelled alone.

      And yet he married Margaret McLean b1827 (two years younger than him) which is again conjecture but a more likely age match if you can get past the "occupation of a 12yoa male"? It was 1837!
    • An unknown source has James born in UK in 1825, whereas Edwin MacLean has his birth as 1820, no place stated. [2]

    • on 27.5.2016 Lorna McLean altered the year of marriage of Margaret McLean to first husband from 1950 to 1850. the dates dont marry up AT ALL otherwise.

      IN FACT THE PROFILE OF MARGARET MCLEAN STATES (even with above alteration-guesstimate-change) that her first child ELIZABETH KEATING was born 1848. Not unusual for those days as distances to registry offices are few and far between. At 20miles a day on horse back. Add a buggy, weather and a newly delivered baby to more travel time on a buggy.


      05/12/2016 Another website http://www.familyhistorysa.info/colonists.html
      states KEATING James, Margaret MCLEAN married 1850-08-08 at Manse, Freeman St, Adelaide SA, aged 25, 23. This is giving them birth dates of James in 1825, and Margaret 1827? Further research necessary to justify altering the BRB team research.
