Joseph was a millwright and Adam was apprenticed locally to Darling and Hume, engineers ( possibly millwrights). The family left Kelso in 1829 and settled in London.

red mail Douglass Sibbald Kelso
I have had a slight breakthrough today finding Douglass was in Kelso Union Poorhouse in 1861 census, with a sister. In the 1871 census his sister had been employed as a domestic at the poorhouse. There is no sign of Douglas. I know he arrived in Australia in 1860's-1870 but cannot find how he arrived in Australia. Does anyone have an idea of where to look for him now?
