Their marriage or death certificates should give you their places of birth, ages, names of parents.

WW2 Service summary for Stewart Frankfield HENDERSON b. 10 Jul  1911 however the WA bdm shows 1916....one of the other is obviously an error.

Birth
HENDERSON Stewart F     
Subiaco  Reg#287  1916

Just a curious thought.

A HENDERSON family arrived in VIC in 1841 on the ship Frankfield.  Some early immigrants gave children the name of the ship on which they arrived in the Colonies!

Perhaps someone can check VIC birth records for you?

Thank you Essie.  A very well referenced online tree....such a pleasure to see.  I usually don't even bother searching these if they have no references or sources ;D

Marriage
HENDERSON James born at sea
STIDSTON Elizabeth Jane
1867  Reg#4261

James was named after his father and also after the ship that his
father was born on and grandparents came to Australia on


Cheers

Hello Cando  and Essie thank you so much for this information i am sorry i havent been able to get back to you until now

my dads name is Frankfield  he was named after the ship they came out on.

Frankfield had a brother that apparently served in ww1 in Eygpt. I was told he came home from the war but i dont know much about him.

until 2 years ago my uncle Geoff was living at 64 Bondi street and it was his parents house which was left to him.

Essie i will check out the link u sent me now.  do i need ancestry to see it?

thank u both so much.

my grandmother passed away and her funeral is tomorrow.  you have given me a gift for my father i am now able to tell him where he came from so to speak.. many thanks ``
