I am researching the family of Alexander Gollan who married Hellen Millar 10 June 1804 in Glasgow.
I have traced four children: James who emigrated to NZ with his wife Abigail (nee Gullan?) and family on the Duchess of Argyle 1842. Mary who later married William Thorne after emigrating to NZ also on the Duchess of Argyle. Helen who emigrated to NZ on the Blenheim 1840 with her husband Alexander Thomson. Elizabeth who emigrated to NZ on the Joseph Fletcher 1853 with her husband Stephen Letham and two sons.
I am in the process of tracing all the descendants of the above families, but would welcome any info on where Alexander Gollan links in to the wider Gollan family.
There is also an Alexander Gollan who emigrated to NZ in 1854 on the Gipsy (aged 64) with two youngsters, Alexander and Jean.
I have yet to verify whether the Alexander (senior) is the same as the Glasgow Alexander Gollan. The years aren't quite right.
