    Looking for the registration of William Robert Watterson born about 1863 Isle of Man. Father and mother on death registration are James and Ann. He emigrated to Queensland in 1885 on the Duke of Sutherland and stated he was 22. Thanks.

    Must have the wrong William Watterson arriving in Queensland. Another search for him as he married in 1882
    Suposedely came here with a brother who was killed by aborigines at Charters Towers.
