Australia / Re: Assumed name - why ?
« on: Today at 13:38 »
I have an update.. from Georges nephew in UK.

"Herbert went first to AU in about 1926/1927. George followed about a year later - circa 1928.

That is incorrect.

George (Mr G H READ) immigrated on the Osterley leaving England in December 1924.  His address in the UK is 80 St Margaret's Road, Lowestoft, which is the same as the 1911 census.

He was contracted to land in Sydney and his intended place of future residence was New Zealand.  The address given, 36 Canterbury Street, Lyttleton, was occupied by a shipwright named Gordon Strachan MILLER in 1918.

Added - he was aged 19.

Herbert (Mr H J READ) probably also arrived on the Osterley, but in 1927.  His UK address is a travel Bureau in Lowestoft and he was aged 23.  Contracted to land in Sydney, country of future residence is Australia.  Both George and Herbert gave their occupation as 'Engineer'.

Herbert's address in Australia is given as Ingleside, Ashburn Place, Gladsesville, Sydney.  This was the home of James George and Alice Elizabeth SOWELLS.

This Margaret is still alive and at the same address with Alexander and George in 1871.  I am looking at a transcription only so can't tell you what her marital status is as that info isn't transcribed.
