I have managed to track down the stories of 8 of the 9 siblings of my great grandfather John Hepburn 1853-1912 but I can't find out much about the eldest sibling Thomas John b.1841 who emigrated to Victoria between 1861 and 1871. Their parents were James (1819-1888) and Sibbbella (1819-1903) Hepburn.
Thomas John's brother James emigrated to Victoria in 1874 on the Milwall (to join Thomas?) and married Annie Lawrie Grant in Ballarat. I don't know when Thomas travelled to Australia because I can't find any passenger lists with him on them. I know that Thomas married Minnie Ann Howard in 1871 and they had 7 children.
I assume that the two brothers went out to join their uncles Benjamin Hepburn 1825-1888 who died in Smeaton Victoria and Captain John Stuart Hepburn 1803-1860 but I want to find out what happened to him in Australia, if he stayed near his brother, and uncles or if he went off on his own, I would love to put a bit of flesh on the bones of his story. I bought World Wide membership on Ancestry thinking it would answer these questions but it hasn't so I thought i would ask on the net and see if anyone has come across him in their research.
