A journey from Scotland to settlement in Victoria, Australia  


 Apart from the fact they were of Scottish origin very little is known about this particular Carroll family prior to their arrival in Victoria, Australia. It can only be speculated at what prompted this family to embark on such a long and dangerous journey to Australia as personal journals do not exist. Official records giving the exact date and port of entry have not yet been found and their journey from Scotland to Australia is unrecorded.
