I believe that other contributors have made an error for this William Kingsley.  A search of the 1828 muster will show you that he was assigned to Francis Rossi in Goulburn area and it was not him who went to Muswellbrook.  There is an error in the NSW BDM records.  The man who married Ann McMillan was William Kinsley.  This can be verified by looking at the original marriage entry.  (6Sep1841).  I advised NSW BDM of this error in 2010.
