Janet Sutherland was born about 1828.  It is thought that she was either born in or lived in or around Dunbeath as this was the name given to the family home in Koroit Australia.

Janet Sutherland  married John Gunn on 7 July 1852 in the Mckay Free Church, Bruan, Latheron parish and later that year the couple sailed for Australia on the ’John Davies’, disembarking in Portland which is on the west coast of Victoria, November 1852. Janet remained in the western district of Victoria, dying in 1896 in Koroit having had eight children.

John Gunn has been identified. At the time of the 1851 census he was living with his parents at Corriechoik Braemar but have not been able to to locate Janet and find out who her parents were.  John's parents were John Gunn (1792-1874) born in Kildonan, and Elizabeth Macdonald (1801-1889) born in Latheron parish.  The couple is buried in Keiss cemetery.  Son John, the eldest of eight, was born in Halkirk in 1827.

Hi,

I saw there is an Old Parish record of the Sutherland/Gunn marriage on Scotlands People here's the search url http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/search/oprmarriage/index.aspx , does it not have some details of her parent?

I was out of credits so couldn't download the OPR image to check it.
