* Ian McFadyen's "McFadyen Family in Australia"*

Updated September 6, 2000

I am currently putting together a family tree of the descendants of David McFadyen and his wife Mary McKinnon who emigrated from the Isle of Mull to Australia in the 1852.
Mary McKinnon married David McFadyen, described as a "schoolmaster of Tinmore", on 8th June 1825. David McFadyen’s father was Neil McFadyen, who married Margaret (Peggy) Law on July 20th 1792. Her father was David Law, a tanner of Glasgow. The wedding was conducted by the Rev. James Peddie at St. Andrew’s Kirk, Parish of Edinborough.

David and Mary and their eldest children left Scotland in 1852 and arrived in Portland, Victoria on the 11th of October on the Barque "Dominion" of London. The family tried their luck on the goldfields of Ballarat and finally settled on the River Murray in Victoria.

I am interested in other families on who trace their roots to these ancestors.
