Hi Kingsley,
I have been following up info for a friend of the family. There may be no connection, but there are some similarities.
This is the information I have:
RICHARD DONALDSON, born 1816, married
MARY DALGLEISH, born abt 1817
Richard and Mary's children were:
John Ramage (born mid 1840's)
Isabbela (born 1867 approx)
Richard (born 1850 approx)
In 1852 they left GOREBRIDGE for Australia.
Gorebridge is within 20 - 30 miles of Edinburgh and is in MidLothian.
This family settled in Wedderburn, Victoria.

I have searched the birth indexes for Mary Dalgliesh and couldn't find one that would definetly tie in with the above Mary, but I believe she is one of the following. I have attached these Mary's because they may or may not be of interest to you:
Name, Christening/birth,Place, Father, Mother
DALGLIESH Mary, 3/10/1813,Langholm, John Dalgliesh, Margaret Wilson.
DALGLIESH Mary,22/12/1816,Langholm, Adam Dalgliesh, Dalzell ??.
DALGLIESH Mary, 31/7/1814, Langholm, Michael Dalgliesh,Margaret Jardine.
DALGLIESH Mary, 30/7/1815, Collessie, James Dalgliesh.
DALGLIESH Mary, 25/4/1813, Leith South, David Dalgliesh, Elisabeth Gordon.
DALGLIESH Mary, 4/5/1820, Hobkirk, John Dalgliesh.
DALGLIESH Mary, 22/3/1820, Roberton, James Dalgliesh, Jane Johnstone.

I had more luck with Richard Donaldson:
Christening - 6 Oct 1816, at Temple, parents were John Donaldson and Mary Ramage.
Marriage for Richard and Mary was 24 June 1842 at Temple.(Temple is possibly less than 5 miles from Gorebridge).
John Donaldson and Mary Ramage married on 25/11/1811 at Edinburgh.

I have some 1841 census information for Dalgleish, Donaldson and Ramage for the Temple area:

If you think there may be a connection, please let me know. I don't have much info and would love more on the Dalgleish side.
