Hello Lisa,

You have been a great help in putting 'flesh on bones', thank you.

Using your information about the return journey from California per the Willochra I have found a Mr. Fish arriving in Sydney. But no mention of Mrs. Fish, nee Dobbie.  ???

Did they remain in Sydney?

Do you have his death?

Hello Jamjar,

I'm fairly certain that Mr. & Mrs. Fish returned to New Zealand around 1914/1915. Death registration printout details show "away from New Zealand for about two years" in relation to the marriage.

1926/2021   Fish   Clement Charles   79Y

...Using your information about the return journey from California per the Willochra I have found a Mr. Fish arriving in Sydney. But no mention of Mrs. Fish, nee Dobbie...

The passenger list image shows Seamen's Names and Names of Passengers.  The passengers were shown as First Class, 2nd Class and 3rd Class.  Within each category, the individuals were listed as Miss, Mrs. and Mr.

The Fish individuals sailed 3rd Class.  There were two 3rd Class married women listed: S? Mills and M? Fish.  S Mills is also not show in the newspaper, but perhaps she was not sailing to Sydney?  I do not see a Mr. Mills, so perhaps she sailed on her own and disembarked prior to arriving in Sydney.  Did Mrs. Fish also disembark prior to Sydney, or was her name inadvertently left out of the newspaper article?   :-\

Thank you for those details Lisa. Some more digging to do to see when Mr. & Mrs. Fish can be found back in New Zealand together. Said to have been absent for a period of about two years.
