Do you have ages please, and names of parents.

Span 1911 to 1934.....what is the relevance of these two years.....1911 census?

Did they arrive as single or married women.

This seems to be death of their son Arthur in a car accident in 1948.

Inquest http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article111058441

Death notice http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article18102858
(confirms he is son of Mr and Mrs JW BALSHAW of Saratoga)

From NSW BDM
death 1949  William Arthur BALSHAW, father William John, mother May at Camden reg 5243

Ros
adding : I'm guessing that the inquest caused the death registration to be delayed and that coroner registered death caused the mistakes in family details

adding:
Oh I see that Jamjar has recently copied this information to her post!

Wendy, I can see no reference to Kezia.

What evidence do you have that she came to Australia?

Thanks to Rosie99 for the UK marriage details.   :-*

I certainly didn't 'copy' anything from your posts. I was obviously updating mine at the same time as you posted.

Not that it matters, of course.
