might still be a family link as another co-incidence is that when my granddad's brother Arthur Solomon died in 1959 his wife and children left London to start a new life in New Zealand.

I recently found my mums cousin living in Auckland and spoke to him on the phone but he knew nothing of his past.

Hey Chris

A bit more on Stella.

http://www.hat-archive.com/biographies.htm

'Miss Stella Esdaile

The young lady who is to play Sinbad in Mr C B Westmacott’s pantomime of ‘Sinbad the Sailor’ at Her Majesty’s Theatre this Christmas, was born in Melbourne on December 17 1877'.

Looks like she was born Estelle SOLOMON at Collingwood, Reg in 1878 to John and Annie SOLOMON nee SOLOMONS.

bitzar.

ADD:  Also other issue to same parents.  Couldn't see a Florence.

This looks like the death of John SOLOMON of Hokitika who died in Sydney

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ldj/

From NSW BDM
John SOLOMON, father Solomon, mother Lydia at Glebe reg 13102/1927

Ros

adding : no it mentions that this John SOLOMON had 4 daughters - which doesn't account for a son John SOLOMON who married Annie.   I'll look for death of another John SOLOMON of Hokitika

maybe it is a red herring.

The only facts I have of my great granddad are as follows.

1877 born Milborne,Victoria,Australia

31/01/1904 Ernest Solomon married Hester Windish -whitechapel

Ernest was a commercial traveller and fathers name give as Jacob Solomon

1911 census shows them living under the Esdaile surname at 138 lower kennington lane

1917 Ernest Solomon passed away

I was just thinking... Ernest sais his father was Jacob SOLOMON.  I don't suppose Jacob is the Hebrew for John?!?!

Also, Stella (Estelle) was born in 1877 and supposedly so was Ernest.  Could it be possible that they were twins and both names issues on the same BC but only Estelle's was registered in error?!?!

Chris, have you found Jacob SOLOMON on any census?!  What about the 1887 immigration when it says Ernest SOLOMON was inbound from Switzerland?!?!

Soz for all the questions.

bitzar.

ADD: FYI... SOLOMON is also a very early Victorian name.  One family were here prior to 1835.  I'm not suggesting this is your family though.

Hard to decipher the witnesses.

4 names one of the surnames looks like neltefieiden.

Only census entry I can find for Ernest Esdaile is 1911.

Can you scan the marriage certificate and post it here for us to see.

There is a probate record to find for Ernest SOLOMON AKA ESDAILE, d 1917.

Might be useful information to see.

London electors has Ernest ESDAILE at 138 Lower Kennington in 1911, 9 Montford 1913 / 14 / 15.
Always ESDAILE.
