Alex was in the Castlemaine area in 1858.

A letter for  him at the  Castlemaine post office 1858.

Castlemaine is about 40 kilometers from Bendigo and Eaglehawk and was an active gold mining area at that time.

Thanks again, Ros, and thanks also to Sue and Gerry!

I had seen the notices regarding Alexander's unclaimed mail.  He left Canada for Australia much earlier than did his brother James.  He was also unsuccessful in his quest for gold, but accepted a family offer to come home, and left Australia on April 20, 1885, and arrived back in British Columbia on May 30, 1885.  He died in 1903 in Canada.

The bakers in Quebec City were indeed the same family.  James' father was the initial owner of the bakery, but James Jr took it over after the fire of 1845 in partnership with another family.  That partnership was apparently dissolved by 1860.  The remains of the bakery have been excavated as part of a larger  archaeological project in Quebec.

Thanks again,

Mark

Thanks, Gerry!  I just found Alex' arrival record myself!  We did not know until now exactly when he would have left for Australia.
