She is probably nicknamed Tibby. Note dispersal list gives unmarried females, not in families, but the only ones not otherwise identified are Anne, aged 22, Eusiba 20 and Mary 18 (SR reel 2654), seemingly referring to , Ann and Mary, mixed up

    Other Events:

    • Immigration ship: Brilliant

    Notes:

    Records regarding the early generations of this family contain a number of conflicting details. Some of the facts recorded in the several accounts of the family are not backed up by primary documentation, rather representing oral tradition, which is known to often get distorted. The order and detail of Donald Cameron's children given below represent my best guess, having given consideration to the merits of conflicting documents. RSC

    This family has reason to accept a connection with the Dungallon family, but the details have yet to be discovered. Donald is said to have called Jean Cameron (who was wife of Dr Archibald Cameron) "Aunt".

    "Dungallon" was certainly used as a house name, and stud animal name, in the later family.

    One reading is that "Aunt" Jean Cameron was in fact a first cousin once removed of Donald, who was grandson of Donald or Ewen Cameron of Camusaine, (half) brothers of Archibald Cameron of Dungallon (father of the standard bearer) - ref. Alf Wood

    A further possibility is that descent is from Donald Cameron, natural son of Alexander, 3rd of Dungallon. If so, then on dates Donald (of Australia) would be grandson of this Donald, either through Alexander or Mary Cameron.

    emigrated on "Brilliant"
