I see from his death notice 1898 that he worked for the ASN Company (the Australasian Steam Navigation company).

Have you seen some items on Trove that probably relate to him?
Contribution to Patriotic Fund 1855 (on the Waratah steamer)

Possibly chief officer on the Nestor 1854

Hi Maddy,

I had seen the death notice, but not the other two articles, thank you for your help.  I am yet to fully explore TROVE and what I can find there.  Something else to add to the long to do list. lol

Once again thank you
Sean
