You must know more about him to have identified him to be your ancestor.

What other information do you have please?

Can you explain what a family history card is please.

And having found one with the name Johnny NARRIEL, why would you think that this person is your ancestor?.

There are several West Australian Newspaper references for the name NARRIEL.

Most are stated as aboriginal. Was Johnny related to these people?

The proper name is a native history card these was made by the government to keep tabs on everything a aboriginal family does birth death marriages health travel you name it unfortunely some of the older families didn't have the parents and the government had to  rely on infomation from other aboriginals which was the case on my great great grandmothers 2nd husbands card which had the name johnny Narriel and Emma breasley.

Hi there Jack,

Is that the same Emma Breasley who married Thomas BLAND in 1883?   

Thomas BLAND marriage to Emma BRASELEY at Gingin 1883.  Ref 5470  WA BDM online

Cheers,  JM

could you find out more on this please

THOMAS BLAND, exp., late Reg. No. 2842, by P.C.
J. Hogan, at Pinjarrah, on Sth inst.; charged with
drunk and disorderly conduct, on premises of Mr. T.
Fawcett, Pinjarrah; also charged with neglecting his

At WA BDM online index if you use the spelling “NARR” you get results for Narrioll/Narriel/Narrier (and of course many other surnames).  And if you click on “Display” you can have up to 100 results on the one page.

So for example there is
a death registration for a Wilfred NARRIEL in 1907, Swan.
a death registration for a John NARROW, aged 55, Swan River, 1899 both parents given names listed as ‘unknown’
