Captain Sholto Gardner Jamieson sailed to Australia on the “Leven Lass”in 1853  with his wife Elizabeth Fordyce and his daughter Margaret (2). Elizabeth’s brother-in-law also came for the sea voyage as his health was not good, but he died on the trip out and was buried on St.Paul Island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.


Letters from Elizabeth and Sholto to her mother are still in existence. They tell of a long sad trip, and the disappointment of a hot dusty arrival in Melbourne, and the high prices of goods and lodgings.
Captain Sholto only sailed on coastal voyages after arriving in Australia, and the family never went back to Scotland.
