Sarah Ann Bray (1844-1908) was born at Adelaide in March 1844. She married John Smith Kerr (1840-1918) in December 1869 at Kidbrooke in Kent. He was a tea and sugar merchant from Greenock, Scotland. They had 5 children - two sons and then three daughters, all born in Scotland at Garnethill, Kelvinside, Glasgow.

Sarah Ann’s younger son, Charles Ferguson Kerr (1873-1923) married Kathleen Marie Taylor in 1907 in Coleraine, Co. Londonderry, Ulster. He died in Scotland at "Egremont", Helensburgh, Dunbartonshire.

The three girls - Ethel May (1875-1942), Alice Violet (1877-1948), and Amy Edith Kerr (1879-1954) never married and, like their parents, died at "Rosemount", Greenock in Renfrewshire, Scotland.

The elder son John Henry Kerr (1871-1934) became The Honourable Sir John Henry Kerr, K.C.S.I., K.C.I.E., colonial governor in British India. He was created a Knight Commander of the Most Eminent Order of the Indian Empire, and a Knight Commander of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India in 1922.
