Australia / Joseph Archer ALDRED / father George ALDREDred
« on: Wednesday 08 August 12 23:45 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I have exhausted my efforts in tracing the Arrival to Australia of Joseph Archer ALDRED b. 3.01.1839,Yorkshire, UK d. 3.11.1906, ( my Great grandfather) his wife Lucy Elizabeth ALDRED (Nee Conwell) 1848, d. 1917, their possibly four children, Ada Elizabeth Ann ALDRED, David Wheatley ALDRED, Edward Frederick ALDRED, and  Charlotte Amelia ALDRED b. Coonoar, Hedy, India. They would have sailed from India, maybe Madras around 1878 -80.  I have considerable information on Lucy Elizabeth Conwell.
Charlotte was born in 1877. India.
Their next child was born in Tasmania 1880 . She was Eva May ALDRED.
Family hints say they may have gone to New Zealand first, then others say they were given or purchased a government land Grant at Turners Marsh in Tasmania.( Joseph died there.)

I am also trying to determine who Joseph Archer ALDRED father was. There are a number of George ALDREDs, but the one I think most likely is George ALDRED b. 1808 in Wakefield, Yorkshire.
married Ann Archer  born 1809 in Dewesbury Yorkshire. (Hence the name "Archer" appearing in the childrens names.
I again have family hints that Joseph was a Police Inspector in India, though no proof.
Questions are how and why did Joseph go to India ?
When and how  did they arrive in Australia ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if you can just point me in the right direction.
Many grateful thanks.
