William Moffat- Scotland

Greetings All,
Searching for information regarding ancestry of William Moffat born about 1797 Edinburgh, Scotland. He married Eliza Lund in 1836 in Finsbury, Middlesex and they had five children in South Leith,Scotland; Priscilla born 1839, died before April 1858, Margaret Mary Ann born 1841, Janet born 1843 (my great grandmother) William born 1844, Charles born 1846.
On the 1851 census William was a corn dealer.
The family came to Australia in 1853, and spent about 4 years in South Australia before moving to Victoria where he became a bookseller.
Eliza died in 1858 and William in 1864,his parents unknown.
Would appreciate any info regarding William Moffat's ancestors.
Kate Stewart-from the land down under.
