    Neither William Shiels (Shields) 7/3/1815 Markinch - Millwright and Machine Engineer in Scotland; Gold Miner and Prospector, Mechanic, Grocer, Freehold Storekeeper, Licensed Victualler, Publican (James Watt Hotel in Spencer Street - at the corner of Rosslyn Street) and Property owner (Rental Cottages in Rosslyn Street, West Melbourne) in Victoria - Nor his son William Shiels 1847 Glasgow, Lanark - Solicitor and Barrister in Melbourne and Sydney should be confused with the Honourable William Shiels who became Premier of the State of Victoria in 1892.

    The Parish Church of Markinch, Fife, where William Shiels was baptised in about 1815 [and in the graveyard of which three of his infant siblings are buried - viz. Janet (1) 1812, William (1) 1813 and John 1819] commenced as St John the Baptist Church in 1243, then was later known as St Drostan's Parish Church and in the present day it is the Parish Church of Markinch.

    William Shiels 1815 was the son of David Shiels born August, 1771 at Pathhead (Kirkcaldy/Dysart) Fife. David was a Gardener and Market Gardener and the first Pastor or Minister (part time) of the Baptist Church (break away church on 14/7/1852) situated on Whytes Causeway (Whytescauseway) near High Street, in Kirkcaldy, Fife. The Scottish CANMORE site indicates that the current Whytescauseway Baptist Church is on Whytes Causeway near Hunter Place (and has been there since 1854). David likely became a Baptist Minister as a result of his involvement as one of the three new Church Elders, in about 1843.

    The Church was referred to then as the Kirkcaldy Church of Christ which was established in 1842 - having evolved out of the group who met at 'Links Hall'. The congregational group belonging to Links Hall was from the Linktown Church of Christ and they met at Links Hall from 1842 until 1858 when they joined with the Sinclairtown group and moved to premises in Commercial Street (site number: 10612). The exact location of the Links Hall is not known. (Most of this information is from scottishchurches.org.uk).

    On 18th November, 1806 David married (Fanny/Hannah) Fotheringham Duddingston Mitchel/Mitchell born 2/11/1786 at Lower Largo, Fife - at Kirkcaldy, Fife. Fotheringham Duddingston being called such after the wife of the well-known Rev. Spence Oliphant of Largo, Fife. The parents of Fotheringham Duddingston Mitchel/Mitchell were Henry Mitchel/Mitchell bap. 2/10/1740 at Auchtermuchty, Fife and Janet Duncan born 20/4/1746 at Auchtertool, Fife - they married on 18/11/1764 in Largo, Fife. Henry Mitchel was a Taylor (Tailor) in Nether Largo, Fife in 1765 and in 1813 he was an elder of the Church at Balchristie, Newburn, Fife. The Mitchels knew the Rev. Spence Oliphant personally and there was obviously a strong religious commitment and tradition within the Mitchel and Shiels families.

    Where is Peth-Head or Pathhead ? - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathhead

    Pathhead -
    * Pathead was one of three settlements, along with Sinclairtown and Gallatown which were formerly in the parish of Dysart and are part of the eastern fringes of the town of Kirkcaldy. Pathhead was within the Dunnikier (Dinnekier/Dinnikier//Dunikier/Dunnykeir/Dunykeir) estate and was sometimes called Dunnikier. Pathhead was a very distinctive community which existed before the late seventeenth century and about that same time it appears to have been developed as a planned village. Many of the Feuars (Inhabitants) owned their houses and agricultural plots of land, they even had their own system of administration and burial ground and in 1666 were jointly involved in a legal dispute with the Laird (Lord). (John G Harrison's Notes on the History of the Nail Trade in Scotland 1500 to 1800 - July 2013).
    * Pathhead was divided into Pathead proper or Dunnikier on the Dunnikier estate, and Sinclairtown on the Sinclair estate - which was owned by the Sinclairs of Rosslyn. (The History, Ancient and Modern of the Sheriffdoms of Fife and Kinross - Sir Robert Sibbald - 1803).
    * Another source states that Pathead was sold in 1702 to 'Oswald of Dunnikier' (Thomas Oswald). Pathhead was also known then as 'Pickle Tillet' (a measure of nails) as it was a nail making village. (In the 1790's six million nails a year were made at Pathhead - John G Harrison). Adam Smith, born locally wrote about this local industry in his 'Wealth of Nations' in 1776.
    * Later Pathhead became a community of home weavers. A large annual fair was held in Pathhead, selling locally produced woollen and linen cloths (1811).
    * A further source says that Dunnikier House, now known as Path House was built by a John Watson in 1692 and it is of three stories. I wonder if it was built by the Feuars? It is likely to have had even earlier origins than 1692. Pathead as a settlement was referred to as Peithheid in 1642 and Peth Head in 1654.
    * The house at Dunnikier was not built on the lands of Dunnikier proper - which were part of Dysart - but it was built on part a burgh moor (muir), which was in Kirkcaldy. (History of the County of Fife, from the Earliest period to the present time - John M Leighton and James Stewart 1840).
    * A new Dunnikier House was built further inland in about 1790 by James Townsend Oswald (a descendant of the original Oswald). It was renovated in 1890. It is now called the Dunnikier House Hotel.
    * In 1831 the Dunnikier section of Pathead consisted of a village of three streets with a population of 2090, while Sinclairtown had a population of 1240. (Leighton and Stewart).
    * By the 1730's, Lairds such as Oswald of Dunnikier and St Clair of Dysart had turned themseles into effective entrepreneurs '...They imported flax from Holland, Rega and St Petersburg and encouraged their tenants (feuars) to take up spinning and weaving. They encouraged the recruitment of skilled flax workers and weavers from abroad...By the 1740's they were exporting checks, tickings and napkins to England and the Colonies. The Oswalds, whose estates abutted the town (of Kirkcaldy) were conspicious in the enterprise, feuing...most of their land to the nearby villiage of Dunnikier to tradesmen engaged in the linen, woollen and nail-making businesses. In the neighbouring burgh of Dysart, General St Clair had ensured that "its active and diligent people" were making linen goods for the home and English markets. Kirkcaldy became the focal point both as a centre of production and as a market. In 1739 the town community set up an annual market for linen cloth....' (Adam Smith - An Enlightened Life - Nicholas Phillipson 2010).
    * "...Eastward of Kirkcaldy, and almost connected with it; is the populous village of Path-head, next appears the village of Gallaton. A mile and a half beyond Kirkcaldy is the royal burgh of Dysart, consisting of a population of 1801..." (The Scottish Tourist, and Itinerary...1838).
    * Kirkcaldy "...By the mid-nineteenth century, Kirkcaldy had merged with the suburbs or former villages of Pathhead and Sinclairtown to the north, and Linktown and Bridgetown to the south...there were thirteen flax spinning mills, as well as bleachfields, and machine weaving in Kirkcaldy...Coal and iron ore were exploited in the area to the west of the town, the main collery being at Dunnikier..." 1856 (text accompanying the Map Survey of Kirkcaldy - National Library of Scotland).
    * An outcome - David Shiels may have been born on either the original Dunnikier estate or on the Sinclair estate? A Shiels great grandson of David's has Oswald as a second name. However he could just as likely been born at Linktown, Kirkcaldy, Dysart or Gallatoun (Gallatown) as they are places that he was connected to later in his long life. All these places are closely connected anyway, that is Dunnikier, Sinclairtown, Pathhead, Gallatown, Linktown, Kirkcaldy and Dysart. There were also other closely connected villages.

    Whytescauseway Baptist Church, Kirkcaldy -
    * The first Baptist meeting in Kirkcaldy...(in) about 1786...(there is) A document still extant to a lease of the place of worship for a period of 20 years, described as occupied by the Baptist Society and dated 5th September, 1798. It was signed by...Alexander Shiels, Weaver...Pathhead (one of nine who signed). {History of the Baptists in Scotland...ed by the Rev George Yuille - 1926 - online as a pdf}. It is considered that the Alexander Shiels mentioned here is related to David Shiels 1771 Pathhead, who was later a member of this same church. Alexander Shiels was likely to have been a cousin or an uncle of David Shiels.
    * In 'the Restoration Movement' (online) - The Kircaldy Church of Christ...David Shiels/Shields is mentioned three times in his role as an elder at the Kirkcaldy (Kirkaldy/Kirkcaldy) Church - twice as David Sheils and once as David Shiels. It says too that he was appointed as an elder c1843. Moreover, in the 'History of the Baptists in Scotland...edited by the Rev. Geo. Yuille, David Shiels gets a mention as an elder of the church in Kirkcaldy.
    *" In July 1852...at a meeting of the church, twenty four members, [another report gives a very much higher number] including one elder David Shiels and two deacons Robert Brodie and James Ireland, withdrew from fellowship and began to meet separately. The events of that day were witnessed by one of the elders of the Edinburgh church who happened to be visiting...This breach was never healed and that group established what is now Whytescauseway Baptist church, whose meeting place opened on 30th April 1854". (The Restoration Movement).
    * The first Baptist meeting in Kirkcaldy owed its origin, about 1786, to the testimony and influence of a Baptist mole catcher who had come to work on the Raith Estate (Linktown was in the Royal Burgh of Raith). Though the number was never large, they maintained a weekly meeting. In 1798 the church was set in order. They leased a place of worship. The first minister, served for 40 years. In 1852, twenty four members including an elder and three deacons withdrew from the Kirkcaldy congregation and formed Whytescauseway Baptist Church, and built a church in 1854. Source: History of the Baptists in Scotland, by Rev. Geo. Yuille, pub. 1926... (Family Search).
    * This congregation was formed in 1852 when they broke away from the Baptist congregation that met in the Rose Street Chapel (site number: 10494). They met in the Philp School (site number: 10688) until their new church in Whytescauseway opened in 1854. (Whytescauseway Baptist Church).

    As to David's forebears nothing has yet 'been proved' but it is strongly felt that he belongs to the Shiels/Shields/Schilds/Sheills etc family who descend from John Shiels/Schilds c1690 and Agnes/Agnas Camble/Cambell bap. 3/6/1694 in Dysart, Fife. There is a possibility that he is a son of William Shiels bap. 17/2/1729 Dysart, Fife and Agnes Forsyth bap. 23/3/1729 at Falkland, Fife - they married on 28/2/1750 at Dysart, Fife. In 1808 David Shiels is recorded as being at Largo and in 1810 at the Barns of Brunton (Brunton Barns/Brunton Mains) and in 1812, 1813 and 1819 at the Mains of Barnslee (Barnslee Mains) in Markinch; so it means that he and his wife and family were in Markinch till at least 1819 moving to Kirkcaldy by c1822 as their daughter Agnes was born in High Street, Kirkcaldy c1822. It appears that the Mains of Barnslee was also called the Mains or Barns of Brunton.

    Mr Neil Sutherland, the Chairman of the Markinch Heritage Group in Fife kindly advised me early in January, 2013 "...On the Brunton estate the 'home' farm was Brunton Barns and the other farm to the south was Barnslee, often referred to as the Estate of Barnslee belonging to Colonel Paston. The names Brunton and Barnslee were sometime interchanged, probably due to name changes over the years. As you may know at one time it was part of the Dalginch estate and Barnslee farm was known as Backside but changed...to Barnslee or Barnslee south. That farmhouse no longer exists. Brunton House may sit on the site of the alleged MacDuff castle or stronghouse. We hope to do geophysical work on this site..." Added a little later by Neil "... going very far back, there may have been a small settlement/hamlet at Brunton or Burntoun as it was called at one point!" Records for the early to mid 1500's do indeed refer to the place as Burntoun or Burn Toun. As well many thanks to Neil for the images of Barnslee Mains; and Brunton Barns including the remnants of Gardener's Cottage, Farm Cottage, Mill, Barns and the grounds, including an old driveway.

    Other references on Brunton Barns or Mains and Barnslee Mains follow –

    • The Gazetter for Markinch at a 'Vision of Britain' -
    http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk (search for Barnslee) - Barnslee was "an estate, with a mansion, in Markinch Parish of Fife...called originally Dalginch, afterwards Brunton; and is said to occupy the site of a castle of Macduff, Thane (Lord) of Fife." The Macduff who was made infamous by William Shakespeare.

    • MacDuff/Macduff and Dalginch -
    "...On the highest point of the ridge near the village (of Markinch, Fife), at an elevation of eighty feet, are the remains of Maiden Castle...supposed to have been the stronghold of Macduff, Thane of Fife; and to the east of the village is Dalginch another of the castles, from which there is said to have been a subterraneous communication with the former. The latter (site) now called Barnslee, is the residence of Mrs Paston". (A Topographical Dictionary of Scotland - Samuel Lewis - 1846 - British History online). Macduff, the Thane of Fife, whose family were the Thanes of Fife in the early 800's and Macduff of Shakespeare's Macbeth are historically different characters. The one represented in the Bard's dark tragedy is mostly a character of his imagination!

    • In the Archealogical notes for a possible (ancient) castle at Brunton the Canmore site reports "Dalginch, a quarter of a mile from Markinch...Its more modern name is Brunton, although in 1845 it was called Barnslee, the seat of Mrs Colonel Paston (Colonel William Paston died on 25th July,1830 - Blackwood's Edinburgh magazine)...There is no trace nor any knowledge of a castle at the farm of Dalginch, Barnslee or Brunton Barnes...Kennoway, Kirkcaldy, Fife".

    • This Barnslee or Brunton estate had a walled garden in between Brunton House (now demolished - Canmore - Scotland Ref E 18938) and Brunton 'Barns', a north lodge, a south lodge and a west lodge; and also there was a Gardener's lodge or cottage, a Dovecot (Doocot) a house for doves and pigeons, a carthouse, a flower garden, a vegetable garden, ancillary farm buildings and fields. [Canmore - Scotland].

    • From the British Listed Buildings site "Brunton House, formerly known as Barnslee and originally part of the barony of Dalginch was demolished earlier this century (referring to 20th C), having been a 2 storey with attic, 5 bay classical house with portico. Some confusion arises over the name as later maps show a now demolished house to the S as Barnslee, this appears on the 1856 OS (Ordnance Survey) as Backside, and may also be the property mentioned by Cunningham as South Barnslea owned by Mrs Marjery Simson. Miss Aitken of Barnslee was a benefactress of the Brunton United Free Church in 1843".

Brunton Barns and Brunton Divecoot HB number 10011 - listed 27June 1973 "Description: Late 17th or early 18th century. Small, lean-to, single chamber, rectangular-plan lectern dovecot adjoined by lower range to rear roofed with corrugated-iron. Random rubble with weathered sandstone quoins. Crowstepped with stepped rat course/alighting ledge. Small opening to S elevation. Lined with stone nesting boxes. Piend-roofed pantiled barn with basket-arched openings, and range of cattle courts also piended and pantiled. Notes:
    Situated close to the site of Brunton House (demolished earlier this century), the small steading at Brunton Barns, though semi-derelict, retains some fine features including an open piended pantiled range, basket- and segmental-headed cart arches. Brunton Walled Garden lies within Markinch Parish and is listed separately".

    • Besides, the National Archives of Scotland, Catalogue 'search' for Barnslee in Markinch, Fife throws up - PL292 Markinch showing that the NLA holds the 1805 'Plan of the estate of Barnslee belonging to Colonel Paston'. In record GB 234 RHP 3263 for the year 1805 - 'Previously the Estate belonging to Colonel Paston - Barnslee House, gardens and South Farm...' and in record GB RHP 23612 also for 1805 - 'Plan of the Estate of Barnslee (of Brunton), belonging to Colonel Paston...' [both records held at the National Archives of Scotland].

    The Agricultural Survey of Fife in 1800 shows that Colonel William Paston was at Barnslee. Soon after being owned by the Pastons, Barnslee was the property of John Balfour, Esq. of Balbirnie.

    Scotlands Places Map ‘search’ enables various locations at Brunton Barns or Mains such as the (Main) House (demolished), the Gardener's Cottage and Doocot (Dovecoot); and Barnslee (demolished) to be individually pin pointed on a clear map. While Google Earth in satellite view enables the patch of land where the Brunton House or Barns stood to be identified, plus the estate can be viewed in (near to) real time geographical land and features. To reiterate both the houses of Brunton Barns or Mains and Barnslee Mains at opposing ends of Brunton Barns are gone but some outbuildings and remnants belonging to the Brunton Barns part of the estate still exist.

    David Shiels has been recorded as a Gardener in 1808, 1815 and 1825; and a Gardener in 1851 and a Market Gardener in 1861 (on both Census dates he was at Whytescauseway, Kirkcaldy). There is a strong possibility that David Shiels worked as a gardener on the Barnslee or Brunton estate in the period c1807 to c1819? David Shiels died on 1st November, 1861 and in 1862 his house was for sale - 'House and Garden - East Side of the Turnpike Road, near the top of Gallatown "...sometimes occupied by the deceased David Shields." David Shiels died at the age of 90 in 1861 on Whyte's Causeway so the house for sale in 1862 may have been another house he owned and/or lived in at a previous time? Or was he using one of the venues as a retail outlet for his homegrown fruit and vegetables? [David's daughter Agnes c1822 Kirkcaldy and her husband John Ross c1805 Kirkcaldy were later involved in retail sales of fruit in High Street, Kirkcaldy]

    William (2) Shiels 1815 was one of 11 (or even up to 13) children of David and Fanny Shiels - Janet (1) c1807 William (1) 1808, Henry 1810, William (2) 1815, John 1817, Fanny/Fannie c1819, Agnes c1822, Nancy? c1823, Janet (2) c1824, Andrew 1825, Margaret c1827, Mathew 1829 and perhaps James c1829 (a James Shiels is mentioned alongside the death details for Fanny/Hannah in 1845). There may have been one more child, as a James is registered in regard to the death of Fanny/Hannah (Mitchel) Shiels in December 1845 at Kirkcaldy, Fife.

    On 1st January, 1838 William (2) 1815 married Elizabeth (Betsy) Burrell/Birrel (baptised Elisabeth) 26/3/1818 Abbotshall, Fife at Kirkcaldy, Fife. In 1839 they were in Glasgow as their first child David was born there at that time - their church in Glasgow was the George Church; and they were still in Glasgow when their fourth child William (2) was born in 1847.

    By 1849 the family decided to try their luck in Australia and embarked as assisted migrants on the 'Agenoria' [Lloyds Shipping Register and Gilbert Provost online] Agenoria - 1849, Master - Captain R Newby, Rigging - Barque, Tonnage - 670 tons using old measurements and 724 tons using new measurements, Owners Gray and Son, Port of Registry - London, Port of Survey - London, Voyage - sailed for Sydney. Sailed 7th February, 1849 from whence, Plymouth to Port Jackson, 25th May, 1849 [Mariners and Ships in Australian Waters]. The State Records of New South Wales also give the date of the arrival of the Agenoria as 25th May, 1849.

    Re the 'Agenoria' - "This vessel has made good passage in one hundred and seven days from Plymouth... All on board are now in good health, and much credit is due to the Commander, Surgeon-Superintendant and Officers of the Ship, for the remarkably clean condition in which she has arrived..." [NLA Shipping Gazette site 1825 to 1832 - for 26th May, 1849]. [The Shiels family came in Steerage class].

    An intriguing fact is that 'Agenoria' Immigration documents on William Shiels show that he had a cousin Patison living in Sydney. The Shiels family moved from Port Jackson initially to a camp at Bathurst, New South Wales and by late October/early November, 1949 had found their way to Geelong, Victoria. The Agenoria then sailed on to Melbourne. However, for the Shiels family before moving south there were probably meetings to be kept up in Sydney. For in 1849 besides his Patison/Pattison cousin to catch up with William would have been looking forward to the arrival of his young brother Andrew Shiels 1825 Kirkcaldy, Fife who had migrated with his wife Cecilia Suttie Smith 1824 Leith; on the 'Diana' a little later in 1849 than the arrival of the ‘Agenoria'. Alas ill-fortune struck this Shiels family and in December 1849 Andrew died in Sydney, as well as a child of Andrew and Cecilia's dying on the journey and another child dying in 1849 also in Sydney; and they had already lost their first child Andrew in 1847 in Kirkcaldy.

    When William and Elizabeth Shiels and their family arrived at Port Jackson at the end of May, 1849 they also had the company of Elizabeth's sister Margaret (Birrell/Burrell) Greig 1816 Linktown, Abbotshall, Fife and her husband John Greig 1815 Abbotshall, Fife and their four young children - Isabella 1835, Agnes 1837, John 1840 and Margaret 1845, all born at Linktown - who had immigrated with them on the Agenoria. When John Greig and Margaret Birrell/Burrell married in 1835 in Kirkcaldy, Fife. John Greig was a Tailor and the son of John Greig, Gardener in Dysart, Fife. On the Agenoria Shipping Record of 1849 John Greig is entered as a Farm Labourer and Baker. On arrival in Sydney John Greig initially worked as a Baker but by the early 1850's he went Gold Mining. His wife and family joined him on the goldfields of Ballarat by about 1852/1853. However, John did not remain a gold miner for long but started up a new career on the goldfields by setting up a tent city for other gold miners. It was there too around Specimen Creek in close proximity to Bakery Hill, Sovereign Hill and Golden Point that his daughter Agnes Greig, later Franks, was a witness to the Eureka Rebellion or Stockade in 1854 and later wrote about it.

    Walter Greig stated in the shipping records as age 23 and from Dysart, Fifeshire, Scotland and single and brother to John Greig was also on the this 1849 voyage of the Agenoria. On his passenger details it shows that he was a Baker. (Walter was actually 26 having been born on 12th June, 1823 in Dysart). From the State Records of New South Wales - a digital collection is online and is in handwriting of the times).

    There were other Greig siblings of John and Walter - James, William, Agnes, Alexander and Christian.

    A point to note too is that at the time of John Greig's marriage in 1835 to Margaret Birrell (Birrel/Burrell/Burrel) he was a Tailor (as mentioned) and at the time of immigration to Sydney, Australia in 1849 John's employment had been as a Farm Labourer and Baker (as mentioned).

    In 2006 through the internet I located what is most likely a painting of this 'Agenoria' (by unknown) at an Art Gallery in Nova Scotia. This advice that it was in an art gallery came from Philip L Hartling, Reference Archivist at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (Library) at 1675 Lower Water Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia. From the description of the painting on the internet - the tonnage lined up and so did it's description and the place where and when it was built -
    [Saint John, New Brunswick in 1846 ; Portraits Agenoria - Unknown, Code NB. SJ.1846.144, Port Saint John, NB, No 144Y 1846 M 10 D 17 Of No ICS, Name Agenoria, Rig Barque Tons 724]. A copy of the painting on the internet has disappeared. Gilbert Provost of Canada who is a 'Shipping expert' online, kindly went to the Lloyds Register at this time to check out the details on the barque 'Agenoria' which I was interested in; he agreed with me that going on the information which we had there was a strong possibility that the painting and the description of this particular 'Agenoria' matched up.

    After a recent careful study and logical analysis by the Curator Emeritus, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic responded by email on 30th January, 2013 relaying their findings, and the last two paragraphs of the conclusion are "...The description of barque Agenoria built in 1846 extracted from the Saint John port register, in particular the square stern, no galleries and the female figurehead matches the vessel in the painting...Based upon the evidence the barque Agenoria depicted in the painting is most probably the barque Agenoria built in Saint John, NB in 1846."

    This Agenoria (ie the one my ancestors sailed on to Sydney, Australia) is listed at the Library and Archives Canada - Ship Registration Index (along with others of the same name - as at 11/2/2012) -
    Name of Vessel:Agenoria Year of Registration:1846 Type of Vessel: Bark Port of Registry: Saint John, New Brunswick Where built City/Town/Other: Saint John Province/State: NB Date of Construction: 1846 Gross Tonnage: 724 Remarks: Transferred to London Reference Record Group: 42 Volume: 1342 Complementary References 1 Old Volume: 131 Microfilm Reel #: C-384 Pages: 101. This is certainly the ship in which my Shiels ancestors sailed.

    William Shiels 1815 in Melbourne -

    * William and Elizabeth Shiels and their family left Albion Wharf, Sydney for Geelong on the Schooner 'Lillias' at the end of October, 1849. The Lillias sailed on to Melbourne, so the Shiels family may have even disembarked there. Soon after arriving in Victoria William Shiels went gold mining at the Mt Alexander goldfields (about 1852/1853) where he did strike it lucky, finding 14 lbs of gold (7 lbs on each of two trips) and at time it was worth a total of about 800 pounds. In today's value that is a lot of money! William then planned to do further gold prospecting but gave up the idea. He had set himself up with the necessary gear and some cattle and had set off but bad reports along the way caused him to dispose of his cattle and equipment and return to Melbourne where he was initially going to set up as a Mechanic - this information was obtained from a letter to his father, reported in the Fifeshire Advertiser of 28th May, 1853.
    * The Fife Family History Publication 29 - 1855 to 1890, says that William Shiels made two trips to Mt Alexander, and settled in Melbourne as a Mechanic and met up with Alexander Shiels and Russell Dick "both from this quarter" - 28th May, 1853. Russell Dick "from Dysart, emigrated to Australia and the diggings in the early 1850's; not too successful, and took to his old trade as a shoemaker and 'was successful in that line.' " - Fifeshire Advertiser 30 April, 1853 - Fife Family History Publication No 29 Part 4. A point of interest too is that Russel Dick is mentioned in the Kircaldy Church of Christ History as emigrating to Australia in about 1852. Russell Dick was a Householder and Shoemaker in Gertrude Street, Fitzroy in 1857. (Victoria Government Gazette of July, 1857).

    An Alexander Shiels a Merchant c1795 (58) from East Linton (Prestonkirk), East Lothian, Scotand and his wife Mary Sinclair c1813 (40) migrated from Glasgow to Melbourne on the Wacousta arriving in May 1853 - they had 8 children with them - William (Lamb) 19, Margaret 15, Alexander 12, John 10, Ellen 8, Mary (Anne) 2 and Francis Martin 1 - Alexander senior unfortunately died in Gertrude Street, Collingwood on 29th January, 1854 so his adventure was short lived. The 1851 Free Census online - at East Linton, Prestonkirk, East Lothian, shows Alexander Shiels as a Merchant 66 born at Earlston, Berwickshire and his wife as 40 born at Oldhamstocks, East Lothian - all children are shown except Francis Martin Shiels and a son Thomas Shiels then 19 and a Shopman (1851) did not emigrate with the family to Melbourne. So was the Alexander Shiels senior, a Merchant born in Berwickshire, the Alexander Shiels whom William Shiels had caught up with?

    Sheryl Reed Wells of Scotland and Canada and I researched together over the seas the births/baptisms, marriages, deaths, morcloths, burials and memorials of the Shiels/Shields families of Scotland (especially of Dysart, Kirkcaldy, Pathhead, Dunniker, Sinclairtown, Gallatown, Linktown, Markinch, Falkland, Lower Largo, Largo, Balchristie, Balmerino and Auchtermuchty in Fife, Old Machar in Aberdeen and in Glasgow and Edinburgh) which we felt were relevant to our common family tree.

    Added on 17 Jan 2018 - What a number of web sites say about 'William Shiels' the MLA and Premier is unfortunately often a mash of William Shiels 1848 Derry, Ireland and William Shiels 1847 Glasgow, Lanarkshire. Both men obtained their Bachelor of Law Degrees from the University of Melbourne. William Shiels of Derry, Ireland graduated in 1873. William Shiels of Glasgow, Lanarkshire only Matriculated in 1873 and commenced his Bachelors Degree in 1879. He was the William Shiels who went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Law. (Source - University of Melbourne Student Cards for both of the 'William Shiels').

    Geoffrey Serle at the ADB is on the right track regarding William Shiels 1848 of Derry, Ireland. See - http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/shiels-william-8418

    Which William Shiels - University of Melbourne? Both were to become Barristers. This is thought by another researcher and me to be about William Shiels who became the MLA and Premier of Victoria and not the William Shiels 1847 born in Glasgow, son of William Shiels 1815 Markinch! Now 17 Jan 2018 - the another researcher has obtained the student cards for both William Shiels from the University of Melbourne Archives. Hence this is about the William Shiels who became the MLA and became Premier. My William Shiels - 1847 Glasgow, did not Matriculate till 1873 and he started his Law Degree in 1879.
