nephew of the late J Thurston, Billiard Tables Maker, 

So, do you take it that this J THURSTON is the uncle of John STEPHENS, and was THURSTON in Australia or in England??

Judith, John Thurston c 1777 - 1850 was a very well known billiard table maker in London, operated from 14 - 16 Catherine Street, Strand, London, England.
He had no connections with Australia, other than by trade.

Plenty of information about him here -
http://www.snookerheritage.co.uk/histories-articles/thurston-co/

I had already connected him to my 3G grandfather William Tuthill, aka Stephens, and by implication to John in Sydney.  Now I have found an advert where the connection is mentioned (more for added kudos than affection for a dead uncle not seen for at least 20 years, I'm sure).

I have found the shipping record!

I have started a new topic, so that others would read the topic (they might think that this topic had been exhausted, with 3 pages of responses back and forth.

Thank you all, I knew it must be there somewhere.

A quick update for anyone that helped me out and/or followed this thread from 2014.

Autosomal DNA testing has given me a match with one of the Australian descendants​ of John Robert Tuthill aka Stephens, who worked as a billiard table maker in Sydney.

It is very good to have this rather complicated branch of my tree confirmed.  The person I matched up with was extremely surprised, she had no idea of the connection.

Anybody with any brickwalls or uncertainties in the last 150 - 200 years or so, please consider autosomal DNA testing.
