Hello, I am trying to find any information on the Scott family who were from the outskirts of Elgin, Scotland.

Isabella Scott (born 17 October 1831, New Spynie, Moray)
* She resides with her family in the 1841 and 1851 census in New Spynie but then makes the move and travels to Melbourne, Australia in 1853. From here she marries her husband Benjamin Young and moves to New Zealand which is where my link starts.

* Her father was James Scott (born 13 June 1798, New Spynie, Moray) and married his wife Isabella Anderson (born 29 August 1802, Elgin, Morayshire). I only have one census record for James, he then passes away ABT 1848. Isabella seems to stay around for some time and passes away on the 2nd May 1889. From my understanding the family resides at some stage on a farm called Easter Marchead which her son John runs.

* From what I am aware they had they following children in order of age:
-Mary Scott
-Alexander Grant Scott
-Margaret Scott
-William Scott
-Isabella Scott
-James Scott
-John Scott
-Helen Scott
-George Scott

* Some of these children made the journey to Melbourne, Australia.

If anyone would have any information on any of the above it would be hugely appreciated.
