My great grandfather Robert Herbert came to the Ovens valley and Bright, Victoria from Canada in 1852 on the 'Revenue'. Acompanying him were a James and Isabella (nee Craigs) Nesbitt. I am curious as to where they went and whether they had any family. Am also in receipt of an email of a relative trying to trace them via a Robert Herbert descendant.

Robert was 20 when he left New Brunswick, Canada. His parents went there from Northumberland, Eng in 1837 when he was 9. The Nesbitts and the Craigs were among the families that immigrated with the Herberts from Northumberland and Southern Scotland. I have details of this immigration and the settlement.

Am seeking assistance from anyone who may have details of the passenger list of the Echunga which arrived in Victoria in 1857 with my ancestor Ann Nisbet aboard (info from Pippa Letch). I am looking for a James Wright who may have also been aboard, he is her future husband. Thanks.

Hi, just trying to get hold of my Grandfathers birth certificate and came across this site. If it helps anyone with their family research his name was David Nisbet born Shetland, Scotland in 1903 and moved to Australia in his early 20's and married Olga Donald. They had 3 children, Donald (my father), Colin and Marie. If you would like any further info please email me.

Just browsing through the Nesbit site. It caught my eye as I have a cousin who has a farm at Edrom, Berwickshire which is next to the Edrom Church. If anyone wants me to look through the churchyard for any Nesbit graves let me know and I will do it next time I visit Edrom.

Hi! I have just applied to join. I have only just started researching my Nisbits so info is still basic at this early stage.

My Nisbit ancestor is Ann Wright (nee Nisbit/Nesbitt etc.). From her death entry in Vic Death index, her year of birth is abt. 1840. Ann's parents are Jno. Nisbit and Isabella Nichol. Family story has it that Ann (who married James Wright) met James on ship out to Australia in abt. 1859. First child Isabella born in Ballarat, Victoria January 1860. Ann is from "near Edinburgh".

Hope to hear from some other NIsbit descendants.
