On his sons British enlistment service records (1889). Its states his fathers address as Queensland.
Would anyone be able to help me find some details?
Did George indeed leave his family and go to Australia?

 If the father was Next of Kin on the enlistment records, more detail than merely a state in Australia would be required.

Perhaps Ros was not relying on Ancestry ...  ???

JM
I had a vague recollection that there was another Queensland in England but yes the Hampshire reference came from the ancestry drop box (and possibly the vague recollection too)

I have  not found any mention of Queensland being a place in Hants in my family history papers.

I have skimmed through our OPs other current threads and there is a snip showing Queensland.  I think the snip may be from a British MoD medal index card from WWI.... :)

George's son Arthur English joined the prince of Wales West Yorkshire regiment in 1889.
It says on the papers Father George address Queensland.
Mother Ann Elizabeth Lowther Street York.

I hope no-one minds - I've posted a query on the Hampshire Board (including a link to this thread) to see if anyone there has any info about a Queensland in Hampshire.

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=788473.new#new

I note also that Wikipedia suggests that there  are others : Queensland, Calgary, a neighbourhood in Alberta, Canada and
Queensland, Georgia, an unincorporated town in Georgia, U.S.

Interesting!
