    Notes 
    • Gerrand family history from Jessie May Treloar (2007):
      Robert arrived in Australia in 1852 and initially worked on sheep stations, shearing sheep. As soon as he had earned enough money he purchased gold mining equipment and made his way (with his brother, John) to the goldfields. After some time mining for gold they appear to have decided that there was better money to be made carting supplies to the goldfields and transporting gold to Melbourne. In 1858 Robert's older brother, William and his wife, Jane Roddan came to Australia, along with their children and Jane's sister, Mary. In about 1860 Robert's father and mother also came to Australia. The rest of Robert's brothers and sisters also seem to have moved to Australia, except perhaps for one sister, who may have died before William and Margaret emigrated. It seems that probably shortly after William and Margaret arrived Robert married Mary Roddan and established himself as a farmer. Robert and Mary had nine children.
