Greig family in Ardrossan and Saltcoats

Post by greigz » Tue May 15, 2018 2:13 am

I am looking for information on John Greig, and his wife Sarah McArthur. John was born about 1821 in or near Lanarckshire Scotland. Their son, David Ferguson Greig was born in about 1847 either at Saltcoats or Ardrossan. John with his wife and their son David Ferguson Greig (then about 3) emigrated to Australia, probably about 1851. They arrived in Adelaide where their daughters, Elizabeth and Sarah were born in the middle 1850s. I can find no record of John or Sarah's deaths in Australia, which is rather puzzling. Their son, David, is my great grandfather, and he died in Victoria, at the age of 79. His death certificate stated he was in Victoria for 76 years, and was born in Saltcoats, so clearly he could not have come out to Australia at age three by himself. Nor can I find any evidence of John, Sarah or David in passenger lists to Australia.

Any information much appreciated - you can also respond to my email at gzadow@gmail.com if you would prefer

Thanks,

Greig
