I suspected as much, that finding a Heinrich Mohr whose mother was an Elizabeth Smith might be a task.

Wow, that's a lot of questions in detail.
The middle name is a family oddity, all his other siblings either had no middle name or a middle name taken from a previous maiden name of ancestors in recent line. The McKay is the exception, altho it doesn't appear to be used in any documents once he arrived in New Zealand.
I have no sighted any prison records, what I know of him comes from a booklet written by a distant family member in the 1980s. His father was deceased at 1916, his mother died the following year. Given she died in the middle of the War, it hard to follow the narrative exactly, but four sons died at the time of the War, 3 in military context and one civilian. Her deaths certificate says 4 living son, but the ages don't correspond well to the most likely living sons. He seems to have worked as a labourer when he worked. He was 4/5th born with a twin in the family, the twin died before one year. I will look further at obituaries.

I don't think that fits to the person I'm looking for but its an amazing volume of detail.
His marriage record of 1866 in Australia shows his parents and given he is the informant here I will assume it to be correct, Mathias and Elizabeth Mohr.
The birth date comes close tho, he is said to be 27 years of age when he abandons his wife in 1874, which gives the birth date of 1847.

yes, well maintaining face being so important socially in those times, might have been easier to claim him dead than explain the abandonment I suppose.

his wife was Elizabeth Ann Johns (b. 1843, Cornwall) they had three children, Louisa (b.1867), Henry (b.1870) and Elizabeth Jane (b.1872).
his parents are recorded as Mathias and wife Elizabeth Smith.
he married Elizabeth Ann in June 1866 at Ballarat.
his daughter Louisa married a Samuel Darkin in 1895, Henry being deceased is mentioned in the notice in the paper.
the state of Victoria don't appear to have a death notice for him.

Use family search heaps, only his wedding shows up there. Not heard of the other service you mention tho.

A German-born hairdresser who settled in Australia, he was married in 1866, sought after for abandoning his wife in 1874, wife died 1877, but fate of Henry unknown. Daughter's marriage noticed gives him as the 'late' father in 1895. Hard man to track, exact origin in his home land remains unknown.
