Dae ya ken?

James Alpin McPherson, otherwise known as ‘The Wild Scotchman’, was one of Queensland’s most infamous bushrangers.

McPherson was born in Inverness, Scotland, in 1842, and came to Australia aboard the William Miles, arriving in January 1855 with his family.

McPherson was known as a diligent student, an engaging public speaker and gained the reputation for being well-mannered, polite, and humorous in conducting his crimes.

His exploits included escaping twice from authorities only to be captured by civilians. This feat was celebrated for over 100 years. McPherson was petitioned for release from gaol in 1874 and lived for another 21 years with a family and within the law.
