    Notes 
    • The following information on James ,Julia and their family was kindly provided by their Great Great Grandson Geoffrey Robert Doherty.Geoff has volumes of notes on most of this branch of the family, with only some of those notes added into these records.

      James Clydesdale is an enigma.

      "James" Clydesdale came to Australia in 1849, first settling in Melbourne, then moving to Dromana, on the Mornington Peninsula a few years later. His wife's name was Julia Cahill, and possibly one of the hundreds of Irish Orphan girls brought to Australia as a result of the Irish famine. In 1902 James completed his pension application at the local Court House.In this pension application James listed his parents names, the name of the ship in which he came to Australia, the date he married Julia. James explicitly stated that his parents were William Clydesdale and Janet Muir, of Glasgow.The same is recorded in Julia's application although James actually filled out the forms.
      Other documents(e.g his childrens Death Certificates etc) record his name as William James Clydesdale.
