Hi Jan,

Starting to look like he had a son before he left England, maybe if we could find him on the 1881 England Census to see if there was a child or the 1891 Census to see if the child was with grand parents.  Maybe the mother took the child which would make searching more difficult though.

Hi Jan,

Surprised by the result because the notice re his death in the Cairns Post mentioned a 'grown up son' .

What was the name of the nephew informant?

Hi Jan,

If you purchased the death Certificate for Charles William NEW is should (hopefully) have the children from the marriage if the informant knew of the details.

Just for interest my Great grand parents lived in Kirkbride Road Charters Towers at the same time Charles and Harriet New.

Hi,

The ROSE surname in Mary BROWN's death notice in 1913 was most likely Charlotte BROWN who had married William Hodges in 1887 at Charters Towers and remarried Edward ROSE in 1901 also at Charters Towers.  Edward died in 1930 and Charlotte in 1945 at 63 years.  Both are buried at the Lynd Road Cemetery in Charters Towers.

Charles NEW disembarked in Townsville so possibly a marriage in that location before going to Charters Towers.
