Our Margaret BUCHAN b 1809 is the daughter of James BUCHAN m Rachael Rebecca WILKIN June 06, 1801 of the Isle of St. Vincent. The other children in the family are Susannah BUCHAN b 1803, Mary BUCHAN b 1806 and Francis BUCHAN 1807. It is probable that James' parents are James BUCHAN and Susanna of the Isle of St. Vincent; their children listed in the St George parish records are Joseph BUCHAN b 1781, Martha BUCHAN b 1785, Charles BUCHAN b 1786, Maria BUCHAN b 1790, Isabel BUCHAN b 1972. Their father James died 1791.
I am looking for information on the voyage of the Aurora under the command of Captain J WILKIN. The ship carried 290 slaves from Africa to Jamacia 1803-1804. This may be the same ship which sank off the Florida Keys Nov 6 1840 (Admiralty Final Record Book for U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida volume 2 thru 19, Microfilm Copy Number 1360 Roll 2 thru 19).
