Christiana Munro: Scotland to Australia Click to ReplyReply 
  Author: Greg Smith  Homepage   Date: Jan 31, 8:26 PM

My third great-grandmother Christiana Munro(e) emigrated from Cromarty to Sydney aboard the Lady McNaughton in 1838, arriving 1839. She came as part of the Bounty Scheme, with Donald McDonald's family – a large one, with wife Mary and six children.

From her immigration card she is listed as a "native" of Dornoch, the daughter of John Munro, a farmer in the parish of Logie and Margaret Munro(e), his wife. Age was 24 on embarkation (birth circa 1814). Occupation, dairymaid.

She married English convict James Everson in 1840.

Unfortunately, that's all I have to go on. I have tried tracing her through Scotland's people but there are many Christy or Christiana Munros born to a John Munro and Margaret (surname unknown).

So, the enquiry is a long shot. Any assistance is most appreciated.
