Marjorie was 45 when they sailed to Sydney on the 13 May 1949 so possibly too old to have children.

Just seen your reply Cell - so there could be one child unless she is Marjorie's daughter from her first marriage. She didn't go out to Australia at the same time though.

Just thinking if Marjorie died in 1992 and grandchildren and great grandchildren are mentioned, a daughter born after they went to Australia would only be 43, is that old enough for several great grandchildren?

Hi seems Thornwood is next door  neighbour  to Op's family or the OP. The other thread is very recent, maybe an idea to put a link in the other thread  to this one too.

Cell,

"seems Thornwood is next door  neighbour  to Op's family"

Do you think?

I'm not convinced as (s)he would already have the info. being asked & given  ???

Not quite sure what you mean Rosinish, or have I misunderstood your comment. My next door neighbour is the niece of Frank Porteus, she was only just born when Frank left to go to Australua. Her mother always told her that she had never heard from him after he left. She grew up knowing nothing about him.  She was recently widowed and I think it focuses the mind on our mortality and our need to know about family.  I was able to find out so much for her with the help of Rootschatters. It now looks as if there is a cousin who wishes to make contact, whether she decides to go ahead with this or not will be her decision.
Regards. Thornwood

Hi Thornwood,

I thought Cell meant OP's 'family' as in siblings rather than wider family as in relatives so it was me who misunderstood  ::)
