    • I am unsure if Alexander and Penelope married in Kirkcubright before leaving or perhaps they married onboard the "«i»Emperor«/i»" I have never been able to find a record for their marriage as yet. Family stories have it that they married then a couple of months after the marriage sailed for Australia. On the birth records of their children it states they where married 7 Feb 1851 in Kirkcudbright.
