I am descended from John Medley McLaren, George's younger brother.I have nothing which indicates Colin's parents came to Australia.I know he was here before 1840 as he was part of Angus McMillan's party which eventually found the overland route to Port Albert from southern NSW(Bass had mapped it from sailing around the coast so they knew of its existence). He was working as a stockman and once Port Albert was discovered started taking cattle to Tasmania to sell...must have been fairly hairy in a Steamer!!
