Thank you very much. Not sure if this is the correct William Rattray? I do know that he had a son, Alexander, born circa 1825 (my great grandfather), who emigrated with his wife and one year old son, William, to Victoria, Australia in 1850. He was married to Agnes Winning. I have a copy of Alexander's Victorian death certificate dated 1882, which states he was born in Abbey Paisley, Scotland and his father's name was William. There is no note of his mother's name on the certificate.

Did he perhaps immigrate somewhere ??? Have seen no children for William and Agnes.
