Hi Roddy. I've come across my original photo of this stone, and my reading of it is as follows:-
Erected by/JOHN McLEAN Esqr of Westbrook Australia/to the memory of his mother/FLORA NICOLSON, /third daughter of Mr ALEXR. NICOLSON, Toute, /who died in the year of our Lord 1822, aged 41./Deeply regretted by a wide circle of acquaintances/on account of her piety and amiable disposition./Also to the memory of his father/DONALD McLEAN, Eyer/who died in 1859 aged 100./Respected for his kindness, hospitality and integrity/he was first married to MARION FLETCHER/who died in 1798/by whom he had 3 sons and 1 daughter/and by his last marriage/he had 4 sons and 3 daughters.

I'm still curious about this stone as the last time I was at this graveyard I couldn't find it at all (the photo was taken in the early 90's).
