No sorry I meant SOLOMON - was doing something else and not good at multitasking.  I will correct it to save confusion.

adding: I was at records office yesterday photographing a dozen or so probates and divorces and sent out the links last night so now receiving queries and responses about a dozen or so families  - none of which were HOLLAND  ;D

Thought that might of been the case Ros.  Glad I'm not the only one...  ;D

Interesting the Obit only mentions the daughters?!?! Possible the others are deceased?!?!

Good to see you two have connected.  :)

By the way you can download historical images directly from the Victorian BDM website using credit card for about $AUD 20.  https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj

If you think the birth of Ernest SOLOMON with parents John and Annie registered in 1890 (and found by bitzar) is a possibility then you could immediately download the birth image and get a lot more information.  Perhaps it was a late registration or perhaps he was adopted in 1890 or ... ?

Otherwise it is usually advised to download the birth image of the youngest child which should include the births of all older children.

But yes it is still rather shakey ... some bits seem to fit and other bits don't.  :(

HI Mike, you will have heard from my nephew Chris Ferguson. I am your cousin Robert. We weren't sure if any of the family were still alive as our mum Joan Esdaile told us very little and all we knew was that Dad's (Herbert Emanuel Esdaile) brother's (Arthur Joseph Esdaile) family had emigrated in 1960 and we thought they had gone to Australia. It is good to know that you are still around and I would love to get in touch. Chris, who Is researching the family tree, has passed on some info about our branch of the family and I am happy to pass on what little I know.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards
Your Cousin Robert

Hmmmmmm Ros, I'm doubting myself now! 

Even John SOLOMON's headstone at Rookwood reads 'Erected by his wife and his daughters'...  By the way the obit and the headstone read, it seems all the other children died young leaving the four daughters.

It also seems odd that Annie spent so many years in London, at least since the 1901 census, while John was not.  Perhaps she was supporting her daughter's career's?!?!

They family are probably connected in some way but no I don't think we have found the connection yet.  It doesn't jell properly for me. 

But we may still find it ... :)

And welcome to rootschat Robert  :)  Lovely to see the family reconnecting  :)
