Do you have his army records? I see mentions of his various promotions in newspapers, and of his retirement:

"Capt E G H Green retires on account of ill-health; July 9, 1928"
The Daily Telegraph, Saturday, July 14, 1928

Also:
"The following pupils of Cheltenham College have been successful in the several entrance examinations named:- ...
Indian Army Cadetships, Wellington ... E G H Green"
Cheltenham Looker-On, Saturday, April 7, 1917

 Alice Isabella PEARCE was the eldest daughter of a Randwick based Justice of the Peace. 


Not really related to your topic, but Alice PEARCE's father was Simeon Henry PEARCE, the first Mayor  and known as the "father of Randwick". Lots about him if you google. I know Randwick and St Jude's well - baptised, confirmed and married there.  :)

I saw that entry on NZ BDM yesterday, however obituaries on Papers Past say he was an animal cruelty prevention officer, working 15 years in the area before his retirement (I've forgotten what year, on my phone now so will check again when I'm back at the computer). Didn't rule him out as a possibility, though it needed a bit more research.

Have you tried following Frederick Stewart's widow, Edith Rawkins (nee FOX) to find the grandson? It looks like she remarries in 1892 (Bath 5c/1169), however (of course) there is a name missing , so it could have been to James Henry COOPER, Edward Nelson HAXELL, or someone else. I don't think it was HAXELL as he appears in later censuses.

There should only be 4 names on one reference - Louisa Lambert has been indexed wrongly.

Edward Nelson Haxell died in 1899 - probate to Edith Rawkins Haxell -abode Woodville, Kew

Thanks Rosie, yes, I was following the son in the 1901 and 1911 census, silly me.  :-[

Added: Again, son Thomas Frederick SEED not with them in 1911
boarding with Francis and Elizabeth NEATE in East Tilbury,

so sorry, maybe not such a good idea ...

Added: Here she is in 1901 on Kew Gardens Rd with daughter Edith Mary, so no help there ...

Been hunting for Benjamin's birth (without success so far, sometimes they do like to make it difficult!) ... you mentioned there were 2 children born before they came to Tasmania, what is the name of the other one?
