Angus CAMERON and Jean CAMERON married in 1847, Kilmallie, Argyllshire, Scotland, and arrived at Portland, S-W Victoria, Australia from Scotland in November 1851 on the "Tasmania" with their 3 year old son Allan CAMERON and an infant daughter Mary CAMERON. The family appears to have lived at Portland, S-W Victoria until at least 1866, and in this time another six children were born at Portland. Two of them died young and were buried in the old cemetery at North Portland.

After 1866 the CAMERON family appears to have moved north to the Sandford or Casterton area. Angus CAMERON's mother Margaret CAMERON died in 1867, aged 91/94, at Dwyer's Creek, near Sandford and was buried in the Sandford cemetery.
