Robyn’s 3g-grandfather was John McColl who worked and lived on the Jarvisfield Estate (owned at one time by Lachlan Macquarie, Father of Australia) from at least 1841 until he died at Drumlang in 1878. John was an illegitimate child of Catherine McMillan, and her family came from the northwest of the island. His first wife, Christina McLean, also came from a family that lived and worked in the northwest, and she had four children before she died sometime before 1851. Their daughter Ann McColl then moved to Renfrewshire where she married Thomas [2] Barr in 1853. They then lived in Glasgow until emigrating to Brisbane, Queensland, in 1886.
