Have you requested digitization of your father's service record?
http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?serviceId=A&veteranId=114678

It may hold information to further your inquiry.

Thank you for this link. I did think Frederick had joined up at one point and that is why my trail went cold. However the next of kin would have been "Florence" and his date of birth was 1900 so that does not fit either.
Really appreciate your input - every little helps me get closer.
Thank you
Pauline

Hi,

Thomas Lockley was sentenced to 8 years penal servitude at the Staffordshire Summer Assises on Monday 25th July 1864. A George Lockley received 6 years at the same time maybe a brother? 

Not being a life sentence probably would have allowed him to return after serving his time.

Thank you Gerry. That's correct.
 George was his brother. Sentenced with others for the same offence. Fortunately a very understanding Judge who considered all the facts - not the "hang'em all" type of man.
I feel they were a very close family and that's why Thomas made the effort to get back to see them all.
Thanks
Pauline

Hi Pauline,

You can see on some of the old Parish maps where Thomas Lockley had his 40 acres, portion 135 in the Parish of Boree, County of Clarendon, near Illabo.

I can try and steer you through the site if you want, can be a bit tricky.

Your Isabella:

12979/1917 REED Gordon J H to LOCKLEY Isabel C NARRANDERA

Deaths:

7404/1940 REED Gordon Joseph Henry parents Mark Thomas and Annie WEST WYALONG

100538/1976 REED Isabel Christina parents Thomas and Ellen Alice

I live near West Wyalong. I've phoned the library, which holds cemetery details. Gordon was not on the Shire's online data base, but the librarian is going to check off line register.

I was hoping Isabel was buried with him.

I see that the obituary for Thomas states "as a young married man he came to Australia etc" so does this indicate that he had been married in England?
