I'm trying to track down the birth/baptism date and place for James Campbell (of Lanark and/or Glenelg) as shown on the two attachments. One attachment is the "Ship's Immigrants List' and the other is the 'Board's Immigrant List'. There are minor discrepancies, but I feel sure it is the same person on each list.

I'm also having a little trouble deciphering some of the words. You can 'zoom' on the attached.

Any help would be appreciated as to place and date of birth, and as regards 'Relatives in Colony', is that Uncles? and who are the '?uncles?. I can't seem to find any detail of a marriage of the parents in ?Lanark? and I see the mother had Glenelg as a place of residence. Based on his 23 years of age, I presume he was born c1833.

Many thanks for reading and any help you can give me,

Colin

There is a Glenelg, away up in the West Highlands of Scotland. ...Your document attached to your post for 1856 gives him as being born there, with his parents being
James & Elizabeth. But your public tree has him born in Glasgow to Kenneth Campbell & Catherine, and you give this marriage a question mark....

Glenelg is next to Glenelg Bay, and I have a feeling
that some early ships left Scotland from that area - but you also believe that there was a Glasgow connection, so it is unclear.
Brian, Glasgow.
P.S. It could just as easily be Glasgow they departed from, because this was the biggest shipping port in Scotland by far.
