Crikey Debra... your sleuthing skills are on the ball today!  Yes that is the right man.

Thinking about it, I should have looked at the electoral registers first.

The good news, is that all Hosfords in NSW are related, which makes life so much easier. Only a couple of them went over to Victoria.

Thank you for the extra info... I shall be back on Trove later  ;D

Just to add to the obituary, James Joseph's father Thomas was the governor of Goulburn Gaol until his death in 1869

In the meantime, I've been looking at some of the marriages for his other children and  one of them is a lot clearer and does say trades overseer.

Well done Debra

Crumbs.  :o I wouldn't have got that one! Well done indeed!

Amazing - really well seen  :)

I wonder what any graphologists would make of it:

Think he might have been getting at me, Carol.  I put up a snip of some of my very quick left handed scribble on the signature thread  ;D

Gadget, I certainly would "not get at anyone" let alone your good self. Not in my nature whatsover. I was born left handed, was forceably changed at school in the fifties and sixties, and to this day, my writing is still like a "hen's scrawl" left or right handed unless I am using Calligraphy pens. Thank progress for keyboards.

S'ok, Malky. I was teasing  - lots of  lefties around. Not sure about this one though. He just doesn't seem to know how to spell.   The best you can say is it's OVersier.
