Halahan wrote We embarked on board the "Hurricane", an iron clipper ship, commanded by Captain Johnson (he was Captain in the Naval Reserve), a good seaman, and a kind, considerate commander. .. My sister and myself were the only first-class passengers. In the second there were about thirty, a curious lot from all parts of the world. I (They landed in two life boats amid sharks), losing everything I possessed (including, implements, art tools, books, jewels, family plate, manuscripts, testimonials, etc., with the exception of a telescope). My sister fortunately had a cheque on the Melbourne Bank safe on her person. Thus I landed in the New World, half clad and penniless, with life to begin over again, when I thought I had just attained ease and comfort.

A man in such condition is not always welcomed even by his nearest relations ... Seeing my sister comfortably settled in her new home (she had come to Australia to be married), I felt myself to be one too many, and sought for employment in all those branches in which I was proficient. But without testimonials and minus a single implement necessary for my profession, it was little wonder that I was received with suspicion, and my story of the loss of everything in the 'Hurricane', with scarcely veiled sneers.
In a very short time I saw it was hopeless. ... Feeling it was wiser to leave Melbourne, as I had connections there, and had no wish to distress them with my presence, or let them know to what a state of poverty I was reduced, I managed by a chance piece of work (copying it was) to get together the price of a passage to New Zealand, and landed at Wellington. There I found things somewhat worse than in Melbourne. Literally no work to be had. I went also to try my luck at gold-digging. One morning I landed at Graham's Town and Shortland, half towns, half mining camps, the possessor of a pair of blankets, a few shillings, and a heart somewhere in my boots...

The Hurricane arrived off the Heads on the 21st and took on pilot Kennedy at 6 p.m. While entering the following morning at 8 a.m. she struck lightly on the Lonsdale Reef. Soundings were taken in the forehold but no water was found. However, when the vessel was approaching Arthur's Seat she started to dip by the head and soon after foundered. The passengers took to the boats and were taken to Melbourne by the tug Titan. which was not far away at Queenscliff at the time of the accident. The vessel and her cargo were sold a few weeks later but she was never raised and became a total wreck. The Hurricane was an iron ship of 1198 tons register, built on the Clyde in 1853. She was commanded by Captain D H Johnston RNR, formerly the clipper ship Lightning. The Hurricane sailed from Liverpool on January 12, with over 2000 tons of general cargo and 3 cabin and 16 second cabin passengers and a crew of 28 all told

Wed August 30, 1854. The Case of Mr F Dunbar.
The case of Mr Frederick Dunbar, who some time ago was removed from the Clerkship ot Petty Sessions at Wellingrove, was recently brought under the notice of the Legislative Council by Mr. Parkes. Mr. Dunbar, it appears, reported to the Government what he conceived to be an impro-
priety in the conduct of two of the magistrates-Messrs. Wauchope and Burges-while on the bench. Some correspondence ensued ; the result of which was that the magistrates were authorised to dismiss Mr. Dunbar from
his office. Mr. Dunbar disputes the justice of his dismissal; but what he more especially complains of is, that he has been refused information as to the cause of his dismissal ; and the object of Mr. Parkes's motion was, to obtain copies of all correspondence between the Government and the Bench of Magistrates at Wellingrove having reference to the removal of Mr. Dunbar from his office.
This motion-not in itself an unreasonable or unjust one - was strenuously opposed by the Colonial Secretary, because Mr. Dunbar " must have some very disagreeable qualities," " was always quarrelling with the magistrates
with whom he came in contact," had made a most " unfounded accusation"
against the magistrates,and was, in short, of a very malicious person." All this may be true, and yet it forms no justification for refusing to produce the correspondence asked for; indeed, so far as the Government and the magistrates are concerned, the charges now made against Mr Dunbar by the Colonial Secretary are strong additional grounds for supplying the papers, because they imply that Mr Dunbar had richly earned his dismissal. The person accused of these offences, and who has been punished for them, has at least a right to know the grounds on which the charges are made, and the evidence tendered in support of them : according to ordinary mies of justice, he ought to have been put in possession of them, and heard in reply, before sentence was passed upon him. The refusal now to produce the papers warrants the suspicion that their production would disclose matters which the Government would much rather keep secret.
We must confess that we are surprised that in the Legislative Council so large a majority as 19 to 7 should have supported the Government in their determination not to produce the correspondence with the Wellingrove bench. The refusal to supply information of this nature is an unusual course for the Government to adopt; but hitherto, when they have adopted it, the Council have been more disposed to coerce them irto compliance than to abet them in their refusal
     Capt Frederick Dunbar in Wellingrove, New South Wales, sent a letter dated 9 November 1854. Sir, with reference to my petition transmitted to you through the Governor General of Australia dated3 October 1854 praying that her most gracioius... Majesty's government to grant me that respect, which as an Englishman I am taught to believe is my right against falsehood, premeditated falsehood, obstinatley persisted in despite the most convincing proof of the fallacy the records of colonial secretary's affirm - by the GG of Australia, and the coninuance afforded to a corrupt and perjured Magistracy in their illegal and offensive persecution of the writer of this letter. to be continued..

1859-60 Legislative Assembly NSW. Petition of Frederick Dunbar. Printed 27 Jan 1860 ... The petition of Frederick Dunbar, Freeholder of Stonehenge, New England :- Humbly sheweth :- That petitioner has been subjected for years past to a series of oppressions by certain individuals holding the Commission of the Peace, on account of his exposition of their ill practices, by which your petitioner hoped to contribute towards a reformation in the administration of justice, as already partially exhibited to your Honourable House in a Petition presented during the present session by the Hon. Member for Sydney, Henry Parkes, Esq. ... That Arthur Hannibal Macarthur, Esq., one of the recently appointed magistrates of this district, now entitled Glen Innes, did, on the 1st day of November 1859, issue a certain written order under his hand as magistrate, directed to the Chief and other Constables of the said district, to take your Petitioner's wheels off his bullock dray, and to hand them over to one James Hanna, - the said Arthur H Macarthur having acted thus upon the mere "ex parte" and one-sided statement of the said James Hanna, and without either issuing a summons for your Petr to appear before the Court of Petty Sessions, or in any way calling upon your Petr for any explanation of the case - which unjust order was forthwith acted upon; and your Petr has thereby been subjected to severe pecuniary loss, to the value of about £200, in that he has been thereby prevented from drawing in the fencing materials required for a farm he bought last year from Government, at Stonehenge, consisting of 41 acres; 8 acres of which were under cultivation - 7 in wheat and the remainder in potatoes and other crops, and partially fenced - all of which have been totally destroyed by cattle, in consequence of this oppressive and unjust act, Petr having no other dray on his farm to enable him to get in his fencing materials; beside which, your Petr has been obliged to forfeit a contract for wheat with a gentleman of this district. That your Petr submits for consideration of your Hon. House that, exclusive of the pecuniary loss to him, the injury to his character - if an act so evidently opposed to all law or justice should be suffered to remain unatoned for - would be likely to be most prejudicial, for it may be considered tantamount to a charge of felony against your Petr. Your Hon. House will, Petr is assured, taking into consideration the imminent danger to the interests of the community at large if Magistrates are permitted to do such things with impunity; and after due inquiry, your Hon. House will direct that copies of the order in question, and the one-sided statement upon which it was issued, and which your Petr has applied for in vain, may be furnished to him, and afford your Petr such redress as to your Hon. House may appear to be just and right. ... Frederick Dunbar, Stonehenge, 26 Dec 1859..

For it is with great difficulty that I can move him at all, even from the bed to the chair or even to turn him over in the bed ... so weak and I really think it would kill him to shift him in the state he is at present .... some late time when he .... stronger and able to stand the journey. I might take him down with me... Thank you for your kindness... John K Dunbar.
Fred wrote to the Immigration Agent, Brisbane on 22 Feb 1893: I have the honour to state that through an accident to my son John, by which he was obliged to go to the Ipswich Hospital on yesterday, I am very anxious to go to Dunwich Asylum at once. He was the only person I had to look after me. My other son from Ipswich came to look after me for the present but while he is doing so his means of living is gone. Hoping you will consider my case urgent.... Fredk K Dunbar.
Letter from Fredk K Dunbar to Immigration Agent: My father Frederk Dunbar is now in a most forlorn condition through an accident befalling my brother who was in charge of him, causing him to have to go to Ipswich Hospital, and having made an application for Admittance to Dunwich Asylum and having an answer to the effect that the necessary steps would be taken for his admission I respectfully by that you will kindly see fit to have him removed there as soon as possible as at present I have had to come from Ipswich and am looking after him and being a poor man with a delicate wife and large family there in their poor times I cannot afford to lose more time than is really necessary for time means loss of work.

Endorsed: See letter no. 294 24.3.93 - inform applicant again that he can be admitted at once into Dunwich and that if he requires it a rail pass to Brisbane will be forwarded. 20 3 93.. He was admitted to Dunwich, Queensland, on 20 April 1893. Department of Immigration to the Under Colonial Secretary: Frederick Dunbar (89) destitute, no one in the colony able to support. Certified by me by the Govt Med. Officer as physically unfit to earn his living. Recommended for Dunwich, 20 April 1893.
     Frederick died of cancer of the lip & senility on 25 May 1893 in the Benevolent Asylum, Dunwich, Queensland. There is no record of his death in Queensland or NSW but a mysterious John Dunbar, soldier, born Bangalore, India, son of John Killigrew Dunbar & Ellen Nash died 25 May 1893 in the Benevolent Asylum, Dunwich. The death certificate indicates that he was married in 1829 in India and arrived in Qld in 1873. I believe this is Fred as all other data fits. No wife's name or issue is listed on the death certificate. He was buried on 26 May 1893 in Dunwich.
His descendant, John Dunbar of Mt Waverley, Victoria, has written an excellent narrative of his life.
In 1910 EHV Dunbar mentions that he knew Fred intimately from 1879 to 1890.

Gavin Dunbar

(1454 - 9 March 1531/32)
     Gavin Dunbar was also known as Gavin Dunbar Bishop of Aberdeen in records. He was born in 1454 in Westfield, Spynie, Moray. He was the fourth son of Alexander Dunbar of Westfield, only son of James 5th Earl of Moray; by his wife Elizabeth/Isabel, daughter of Alexander Sutherland 3rd baron of Duffus.
According to Bishop Keith however, who seems likely to be correct, he was the son of Sir James Dunbar of Cumnock, by Elizabeth, eldest daugher of the earl of Sutherland; thus being the nephew, instead of the son, of the above named Sir Alexander Dunbar. He was the son of Sir Alexander Dunbar and Isobel Sutherland.
See Oxford Dictionary of National Biography onlline for an account of his life.
     Gavin matriculated at St Andrews University, Scotland, in 1473. Gavin Dunbar matriculated 1473 - magister in 1475.
Professor Ray McAleese states: It is almost certain that Bishop Dunbar had a daughter quoting several sources - the practice of common law wives and children being common among the Catholic Bishops of the time and legitimization of the children was available for a fee. Gavin was an applicant for prior at Pluscarden, Moray, Scotland, in October 1479. Gavin Dunbar prov. on deprivation of Thomas Foster 19/20 October 1479. He did not secure the position of Prior. His brothers James & David became Baillies of Pluscarden. Gavin was a Catholic priest between 1487 and 1506. He was Archdeacon of Caithness from 1489-1498. He was appointed Clerk of Register & of Council in 1503, Archdeacon of St Andrews in 1506.

]Both Alexander, Prior of Pluscarden and his brother? John of Bennetsfield claim kinship with Gavin, Bishop of Aberdeen, who is probably their great-uncle.
He resigned as Dean of Moray on 5 November 1518 to take up the post of bishop of Aberdeen but managed to secure his former position for his nephew. . Gavin was Bishop of Aberdeen between June 1518 and 1532.
On the 2nd Sep 1529, Gavin Dunbar, Bishop of Aberdeen, Sir Alexander's fourth son, founded and endowed, by charter, with consent of the King, two chaplaincies in the Cathedral Church of Moray. " In honour of the Holy Trinity, and of St Columba and of St Thomas the Martyr, and for the salvation of the souls of the King and of his predecessors and successors, of Sir Alexander Dunbar of Westfield, Knight, and of Dame Isabell Sutherland, his spouse, parents of the Bishop .... Also for the salvation of the soul of the Bishop, the founder, and of other Christ's faithful." The Charter ordained that the Chaplains were to cele- brate Mass daily, "The first in the aisle of St. Columba, for the soul of the Bishop, and for the other foresaid souls, and he shall be distinguished by the title of Dean's Chaplain. The second, however, at the Altar of St. Thomas, in the Cross of the Church, and he shall be called the Chaplain of Sir Alexander Dunbar, and shall pray for the soul of him, and of the said Isabell, his spouse, parents of the Bishop." .... "Moreover the said first Chaplain, entitled the Dean's Chaplain, shall make the Canons and Chaplains of the choir to celebrate yearly, with Gregorian chants, an anniversary, with a Mass of requie placebo et dirige for the soul of the Bishop on the day of his decease. But the second Chaplain, called 'Sir Alexander Dunbar's,' shall in like manner cause to be celebrated by the same Canons and Chaplains of the choir another anniversary, with a Mass of requie placebo et dirige, for the souls of the said Sir Alexander, and of Isabell Sutherland, his spouse, parents of the Bishop, on the 10th day of the month of March." (The above Charter is recorded in book 23, No. 79, in the Register of the Great Seal, and a copy of it is printed at pp. 417, 418 of the "Registrum Moraviense).

He was buried on 16 March 1531/32 in Bishop Dunbar's aisle, St Machar Cathedral, Aberdeen, Scotland. His tomb may still be seen although the effigy in black marble was destroyed at the Reformaton. When the Reformers broke down the monument, they found, as not unfrequently happens, that the body presented no external symptons of decay.

Sir Gawin Dunbar

( - before June 1418)
     Sir Gawin Dunbar was also known as Sir Gawin Dunbar (of Cumnock) in records. He was born in Scotland. He was the son of George Dunbar 10th Earl of March and Christiana Wardlaw.
Sir Gavin (or Wawan), named next after George in a royal grant of 1390, to be noted later, and in the safe-conduct to England on 2 August 1402. He was taken into the personal service of Henry IV for life at £40 a year. On 14 August 1403 he had a grant of the 'vil' of Newburn for life, on account of good service, perhaps at Shrewsbury. On his father's return to Scotland Sir Gavin seems to have deserted the English alliance, as in 1411 he was one of the leaders of a party who broke down the bridge of Roxburgh and burned the town. Probably it was for this exploit he received a grant of £40 about that date for his work on the March. He had other payments made to him from Exchequer, and grants; from customs duties paid up to or beyond June 1417, and he deceased before June 1418.
Sir Gawin Dunbar was mentioned on 23 November 1411.
     Gawin died before June 1418 in Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland.
