Note: Note: Andrew arrived on the ship Barwell with his wife and children. They were free settlers. Andrew was a chair maker in London when Gov King interviewed him to be one of the first government-sponsored free settlers in Australia - King wanted carpenters to build a windmill or two and gave the McDougall, Smith and Bowman families free passage as they all professed to be woodworkers.

... "A. McDougal, G. Sutter, and J. Smith were brought before the Bench upon a complaint similar to the foregoing - Having each acknowledged the charge of non-attendance to the muster aforesaid.
G. Sutter assigned as his motive that it was highly disagreeable to his feelings to comply with the Order.
A. McDougal said, that there was no necessity for his assigning any reasons for his non-attendance; as he had previously done so; and
J. Smith declared that the same reasons which had operated with McDougall had influenced him likewise.
The Bench cleared upon these declarations; and on re-opening ordered; that Messrs. Smith and McDougal be imprisoned one month each for disobedience of the General Order in question; and G. Sutter be committed to take his trial before a Court of Criminal Jurisdiction."
