Croall family Queensland, Australia

Looking for information on my Gt. Grandfather Peter Croall and extended family.

Peter was born in Scotland in 1859, son of Alexander Croall and Jane (nee Watt).

Moved to Keswick, Cumberland about 1860, brother and sisters are; Jane b.1855, Alexander b. 1857, Helen Isobela b.1863,
Robert William b.1865, Margaret b.1868, James b.1871, John b. 1874 and Jessie b.1880.

He migrated to Australia in the late 1880's earlier 1890's, his wife Nancy (dau.of Richard Sumner and Alice (nee Kellett) and siblings following on the SS Tara.

They left London, England 2nd February 1892, arriving at Townsville in April 1892. Records show that they were
staying in Queensland on arrival.

Siblings: Richard (my Grandfather) born 1884, in Ulverston, Lancashire
Mary Jane born 1886, in Ulverston, Lancashire
Robert William born 1888, in Ulverston, Lancashire.

Richard, returned to England (date unknown), he married Eleanor Etta Battersby (nee Seward) a widow, in 1914.

Mary Jane, does not appear in the Queensland Electoral Rolls, possible explanations, not eligable, married prior to attaining
Electoral age, or died.
