Trove Tuesday: Family Celebrities

I am of the general belief that every one has in their family tree a celebrity of some sort, in my case it is the husband of my great (x2) great-aunt, Monica Sinclair. They met on the ship to Australia, as the extract below shows. Can you work out who her husband was?

MMIGRANTS' CHILDREN. (1848, February 5). The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), p. 5. Retrieved December 11, 2012, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article12899825
If you guessed William Arnott (yes THAT William Arnott, the one of Biscuit fame) you'd be spot on!
