Hi All
Elizabeth Harrison was my gg grandmother, born in Scotland (I think) father John and mother Jane, She came to Australia aboard the Frenchman with brothers in about 1855. She married James Bowie in Australia. I can't seem to find any thing in the shipping records except she was 22 and a servent. I would like to find out brothers name so that I could trace them in Aust.
regards Sandra Jones

Unfortunately, we are unable to display the accompanying images of this census at present, despite extensive negotiation with the General Register Office for Scotland. Permission from them has not, as yet, been forthcoming. For this reason, and to enable you to continue with your family history research, Ancestry has heavily transcribed the Scottish Census records to ensure you have access to all key areas of information contained within this collection.
Source Citation: Parish: Kirkintilloch; ED: 8; Page: 14; Line: 2; Roll 1084; Year: 1851. Source 1851 Scotland Census [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 2006.

(So I could not check to see name of mother)
