Christina and Donald McLEAN from Scotland 1837
1825 - 1860 (~ 34 years)
||James KEATING  |
- 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 meaning 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!
- Further research required since James using below dates make him travelling on the Navarino ""as a victualler" at the age of either 12 or 17 yoa. This information seems flawed since in this time one was "not an adult" until 21yoa.
SA Genealogy SA reports James born in UK in c.1825 on his entry to Wedding/Marriage to Margaret McLean so this having evidence is entered.
Whereas Edwin MacLean has James Keatings birth as 1820, no evidence or explanation provided.
