    Hi,
    Keen to know how you go with this research. I'm researching George and Family as well as he was my Grandfather x 7ish.Lol.
    Got to the Military Connection in the UK but still trying to track UK History prior to arrival. He came to Australia and his first job was Wharf overseer (Wharfinger) in Port Macquarie, before becoming Chief Constable, then Built a pub in Maitland (The Union Inn) and wife Elizabeth was the Licensee of the Muir's Family Hotel in Maitland foe a number of years. The Licence was transferred to William Eckford (My Grandfather x 6ish) and his wife Elizabeth Eckford. Daughter of George. The pub was the Wool team Inn on Morpeth Road, Morpeth. Still there as a private residence. George and Elizabeth Cantwell also had another son George William Muir (1818-1819) in UK. He was also Postmaster at Maitland in 1833 at the time of his death on Christmas Day.
    I recently posted some photos of the family crypt at Old Glebe Cemetery east Maitland on Find a Grave. This is George, Elizabeth, Mary Anne and Elizabeth. One daughter married a Doctor and moved to America (Pricilla?) the other I'm still working on.
    Hope this helps.

    Some records indicate Muire with the E on the end. I'm at the level you have mentioned in your post and searching for info. most birth and christening hits indicate Scotland, but it becomes a process of elimination comparing BDM's.
    The same problem with Elizabeth Cantwell. Not convinced with the Canterbury Birth yet. Hope its correct but needs more checking.
    These guys are my Grandparents x7ish so keen to find out.
    Thanks for your info.
