John Montgomerie and Jean King married in Kilbirnie 30 Dec 1788.
Their first three children were: Peter, William and Robert. Peter and William were deported for passing forged notes. I was lead to understand that both went to Van Diemans Land on the Bengal Merchant.BUT now I find that only William went to VDL while Patrick (Peter) was sent to Port Jackson. It appears that Patrick/Peter was a Doctor. Both were given 14 years. Patrick/Peter worked at the hospital in Liverpool.

I think my husband might be descended from Peter Montgomerie.  On the death certificate of John Fairlie Montgomerie (born in Glasgow 1828) he cites his father as Peter Fairlie Montgomerie, Surgeon.  (Mother unknown)  John came to Aust with his wife in Sept 1854, settled in Melbourne and had 4 sons.  Could this be the son of Peter Montgomerie, I wonder!?  For more details look at Ancestry.com.au - Philip Templeton - public tree.
