Thank you for that advice, which I hadn't been aware of (should read fine print more often!).     As they married in Sydney in 1966, they could very well be still alive. Sorry to have raised the issue.

Is anyone able to assist by checking whether a Leslie Bruce Smith and Heather Francis Smith are living in Sydney somewhere between say 1966 and 1970.   Would be very grateful.

Keen to know if anyone has researched William Henry Craig any further.  I particularly want to know if the name Ensleigh (or similiar spelling) crops up in this family.   Would appreciate anyone's thoughts.  thank you

jamjar, I didn't had much success with John Jnr's life in Aust.  In the war records of Frank H Brownhill, one of the addresses for correspondence for Frank was c/- of "J Saunders, Gunyah Farm, Wetherill Park, NSW".   I am presuming this is Amelia's son .  However there are so many John Saunders, can't claim much.  Not to worry, as he is just a sibling to the line I am researching.  I have put the matter to bed, very happy with the assistance I had.  Stay safe.

Jamjar and Garrad I think you do admirably well considering none of these folk are anything to do with you.  I am finding it hard to keep track of names and dates, and rather overwhelmed with all the kindness extended.   I think my requests have been well and truly satisfied.  I have just got to collate it all now, the easy part really.    Many many thanks.

Thank you very much Jamjar.  I hope you have had some dinner tonight.  I am appreciative, but feeling guilty with all this work you have done!   Have a good evening    :)

Again, so appreciative of all the assistance with this research.    Only puzzle I have is with the possible arrival of J Saunders in Australia.  The page is difficult to me to download, and fully read.  I can see J Saunders about 3rd from bottom.  However according to the 1911 census kindly supplied today, he was still with family in England then.  I wonder when the census was taken and whether he had time to catch a boat and leave.   It is no consequence really, as obviously the family have come across in dribs and drabs for some odd reason.   Thank you so much everyone.

My goodness, thank you all so much.  It will take me a little while to digest all this, so I shan't make any comments now, except to send my grateful thanks to you all. :) :)

Hello, hoping someone can enlighten me.  I have Bertha Matilda Jeffery Saunders born in Dorchester in 1887 (5a/339) to John & Amelia Saunders.   Using Jeffrey as a clue, I found a John Saunders & Amelia Jeffery married in Beaminister 5a/703 in June qtr 1878.  Bertha definitely has siblings: William, Herbert, Elizabeth/Maud, and Victor.  At some point the family come to Australia.  Unfortunately I cannot find any more info in Aust about John, but Amelia died in NSW 1943 and the death notice indicates John already deceased.  Too many John Saunders!  Could someone check some census or something, which might provide some clues, perhaps his parents names or something.   Many thanks.  Sorry UK having such problems with covid.  Aust now going downhill at the moment, people too complacent here.
