The Peterhead burial records say he was also buried in Lair C425 on November 8th.1857 (Aged 56) but I'm a bit skeptical about that - I believe he died on his vessel either on his way to, or in Melbourne so is most unlikely to have been buried in Peterhead. His Will describes him as a "shipmaster in Peterhead and Melbourne".
