37 A burial on 01 Dec 1745 could be for her. MEABURN, Ann (I2812)
38 A Clan MacFarlane website has a good deal of information about Catherine though the sources quoted are only Ancestry family trees, so of uncertain reliability. The site is at:

Notes on the site are:
Born 1797, died 1872, age 75. Mothers maiden name Johanna Feuilleteau De-Bruyn 1771 to 3/2/1838 (67 yrs), married 17/6/1796, age 25, Thomas Mewburn, member of the Scottish Assemby Church, age 28 (born approx 1768, died 15/4/1839, age 71 yrs) of Plantation Cumings Lodge, Demerara, Brit Guyana. They had 2 children: 1. Anne 1799-1861, and 2. Catherine Elizabeth 1797-1872. On Catherine's death certificate here in Australia in 1872, her maiden name is mis-spelt as De-Berg and De-Brugh, which makes things difficult, but is typical of mis-spellings in those days. After she married surgeon Alexander MacAlister on the 7/5/1819 they had a family of 11, 8 born in Demerara, and the last three born back in Glasgow, Scotland in 1839, 40 and 41, so sometime in the late mid to late 1830s the MacAlisters returned to Scotland. This would be because: 1. old Alexander MacAlister Esq of "Strathaird", Isle of Skye died in 1832 so surgeon Alexander being the eldest male child of Janette, old Alexander's surviving daughter and only child left of his 1st marriage, he presumed he would be next in line to inherit "Strathaird" as the estate was entailed and could only pass to the next senior male heir of the body. 2. Evidently there were sugar cane plantation riots in Demerara the mid 1830s and the family may have packed up and left because of that trouble.
Then sometime in the mid 1850s most of the family came out to Sydney, Australia. A confusing entry on Catherine Mewburn's certificate states that she spent 19 years in Vic, which coincide with the disappearance of surgeon Alexander off the NSW Medical Register in 1862/63 resulting in Catherine Mewburn coming to Victoria to live with her son Dr Alexander at Garnett Cottage, Bairnsdale. 
MEWBURN, Catherine Elizabeth (I1661)
39 A convict transportee.
Details for her transportation on the Elizabeth in 1836 appear on 
CRUNKHORN, Sarah (I4945)
40 A Coroner's Inquest was held into her death. It said "Tetanus originating in a wound accidentally received through falling to the grass [...] while playing MEWBURN, Pamel Ethel (I3348)
41 A death Oct 1887 at Barton Regis, Glos. might just be for him. WHATLEY, George (I2046)
42 A distinguished economist. BONAR, James (I133)
43 A family tree for the Meaburns of Pontop is given in:
Surtees, Robert (1820) 'Parish of Lanchester', The History and Antiquities of the County Palatine of Durham: vol. 2: Chester Ward, pp. 302-360. Available online

Much of this is poorly documented and depends on wills rather than BMD records for the reconstruction of the family. 
MEBURNE, John (I802)
44 A great deal of information on him and his family is on the website
An addition seems to show that in 1877 he was sentenced to 6 months hard labour for embezzling £1 16s from his employers the Main Line Railway Company! 
MEABURN, Staniland George (I2829)
45 A Hannah Moore was baptised at Birkby on the 22nd July 1795 to John Moore and Elizabeth. Could that be her? (), Hannah (I3165)
46 A highly speculative link has placed this Christopher as having moved to London. It is possible that a cousin, Nicholas (c1675) also went there. A grandson of Cuthbert, Christopher's brother, also re-settled in London later (possibly encouraged by existing family links?).

The beginnings of this line are highly speculative. They depend on the fact that a Christopher Mewburne's son was apprenticed as a cutler in London in 1711. There is therefore a slight possibility that this craft (and maybe Guild membership) was passed on and that later London Mewburns shifted slightly into silversmithing.

Where Christopher came from is unknown. A Christopher Meaburn was baptised at Welbury, Yorkshire on 02 Nov 1672 to another Christopher. A Christopher Meburne was baptised at Auckland St Helens, Durham on 10 Jan 1675 to a John. Either, or neither, could be the London Christopher. However there other evidence that the St Helen families had migratory tendencies so the link has been made.

There also happens to be a Fleet marriage 01 Oct 1695, for a Christopher Newborne. No wife is named on the index entry, but on the same day there is a record for a Margaret Thomas being married - and Margaret is the mother's name on the children's biths.

Christopher was dead by 1711 when William was apprenticed and was described as a Founder in the 1723 indenture for John. 
MEBURNE, Christopher (I2610)
47 A hoyman operated a Hoy - a small coastal vessel or sloop. FAIRBRASS, Thomas (I2105)
48 A Major Brotton was naturalised in 1892 in the USA, with inital documentation from 1886 at Pennsylvania - Mifflin Township, Allegheny County.
Mary does not appear.
Major re-married in 1897 by which time Mary is said to have died (no date given). 
BROTTON, Major (I1346)
49 A maker of fine lenses for astronomical telescopes. Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
SLATER, Thomas (I243)
50 A Margaret was buried 29 Jul 1611 at All Saints,Newcastle. Might she have been George's wife? MEBORNE, George (I4481)
