Andrew Russell born Glasgow Scotland 14 January 1809 to John Russell, spirits dealer, and spouse Janet Philp (married Glasgow 1804). Brothers were John born 1805 & James born 1807. (Janet married secondly John Heugh in Glasgow April 1811 and had son Peter.) Andrew Russell took a round world trip in 1839 including Australian colonies, and wrote a book "A Tour through the Australian Colonies in 1839 with notes & incidents of a voyage round the world calling at New Zealand & South America" published in Glasgow 1840. Returned to Victoria, Australia ca 1841 and in 1851 appointed to Victorian Legislative Council. He became fourth Mayor of Melbourne 1847-1848. Returned to England ca 1855-1860, but visited Melbourne again in May? 1865 as passenger on "Great Britain". He died at Boulogne-sur-Mer, France on 10 December 1867. His wife's name was Jessie? At least two daughters - Elizabeth Inglis Russell, md Charles Percy Davis of Melbourne 1866 at Boulogne-sur-Mer, and Jessie Rhind Russell, md Francis David Millet Brown VC; 2 sons Frank Russell-Brown (1872-1900), and Claude Russell-Brown (1873-1939). Claude md Beatrice Magdalen Tandy of Ontario Canada 1910 and had only child Anna Claudia Russell-Brown 1911-1994, better known as musical opera comedienne Anna Russell. Andrew Russell's Scottish ancestry crosses over with mine, possibly through either Parlane or Gilfillan families near Glasgow. I am very interested in tracing anyone researching or connected to Andrew Russell's Scottish family lines. The Russells of Bathgate, West Lothian including a Gavin born 1829 to James Russell & Agnes Aitken, and brother Alex B may be related, as they visited members of Thomas family (James Lindsay & wife Elizabeth, nee Bell, daughter of Helen Thomas) in King Street Gorbals, Glasgow during 1851 census night.
