Does anyone recognise the family mentioned in the paisley Poor Law Record below? I am trying to find what happened to Hector Hislop b. abt 1825 and his sister Sarah b. abt 1828. The record below states that both went to Australia, although at different times. I do know that Sarah married Thomas McNeil, from the nearby Neilston in AUSTRALIA in 1853 but apart from that... nothing.
Help! Lyn in NSW, Australia
