Sarah Elisabeth Ramsay and Buchan Thomson
 

 Sarah Elisabeth Ramsay married Buchan Thomson in 1852 at Dobroyde.  In 1844 Buchan Thomson was managing David Ramsays property Kierstone on the Fish River. His father Rev Thomas Thomson had arrived with his sister in 1832, and was called to Bathurst the same year. Buchan Thomson was associated with the East India Company and also with the early days of the Australian Jockey Club. A picture of the Bathurst gold fields shows Buchan Thomsons tent, with a sign proclaiming him to be a gold buyer. They had 2 children, a son Buchan,  who died as an infant, and a daughter, Amelia Sarah, who married David Logan, and had 3 children.
