I am trying to find information on my GGrandfather Robert Johnstone
who according to his death certificate was bor in Dundee Scotland in
1830. His father's name was William and his mother's Ann Henry. He
came to Australia to Sydney at the age of 19 in 1849 but I so far have
not been able to locate the name of the ship. I do know that he had a
boot and shoe factory in Sydney. He married Sophia Bailey in 1873 at
Kiama New South Wales and they had five children four boys and one
girl. I hope that someone in your organisation may be able to help me
with some information on him.
