The Attraction of Emigration

by Ross Murray

Pages 24–25 from his 2012 book,  Of Greater Worth than Gold: The history and legacy of Isabella Murray.     Posted with the author’s permission.  While this account refers specifically to the emigration of John and Isabella Murray and their children to Australia in 1848, it is highly relevant to Scottish emigration at that time, including Lobbans who went to Australia, the US and Canada.
