Not sure if my Muir connections fit see below;
William Crawford Muir married Mary Ann Finch (of my family) 1874 at Parramatta.
I cannot find any other detail regarding William Crawford Muir other than from Sands Directory that he was a fruit farmer from 1892 to 1915.
They had a son William Herbert born 1887 who was killed WW2.

Lyn ....... on reflection you said that William and family arrived in OZ 1853 and you were looking for descendants.
Could it be possible that his son William Junior is the William Crawford Muir who married Mary Ann Finch in 1874?
He certainly would have been of age and did live in Parramatta.
