|Book*||MacMicking, Robert, arrived in Melbourne in 1852 from China and Manilla, where he had resided some time, and while suffering from sickness, and voyaging about the East Indies to recover health, wrote an account of the Philippines—"Recollections of Manilla and the Philippines," which was published by Bentley in London 1851, and was well received by the critics of that day, and has since been regarded as an authority on the condition and prospects of that Spanish colony. Having decided to remain in Australia, he settled in Melbourne for some years, carrying on business as an East India and China merchant there. Subsequently he resided on his Mannus station, in the Murrumbidgee district, and on Cashmere station, on the Maranoa and Balonne Rivers, Queensland. Mannus, an aboriginal word, means mustering place, it having been a favourite place for the meeting of the tribes. Here also Hovell turned back from Hume on their first exploration in 1824, in search of Port Phillip, although he subsequently rejoined Hume at another place. Mr. R. MacMicking is the youngest son of the late Thomas MacMicking, of Miltonise, Wigtonshire, who represented the ancient barons of Kilantringan, Carrick, Ayrshire, several of whom were at various epochs of Scottish history not undistinguished. One of them, in 1427, a Galloway baron, lost his life, being an adherent of the Lord of the Isles, when he, with about fifty Celtic chiefs, was seized by James I. of Scotland, that monarch having determined to suppress the independent sovereignty boasted by Alexander, the Lord of the Isles. At the Reformation they took a prominent part in Ayrshire, and during the reign Charles II. suffered imprisonment and fines in the cause of civil and religious liberty. Mr. MacMicking married first Miss Jane White, and secondly Eleanor Jane, only daughter of Mr. Germain Nicholson, and has issue.2|
