Australia / Re: Harold Rushton

Could it be that Harold was born in Pembroke in SOUTH WALES UK and not NSW?

Just a thought...

Added: Sorry, I've just seen that this has already been researched.

A death record for Henry's son perhaps? I know some countries record the name and occupation of the father.

Did Henry Walsh have any other children who married? Perhaps his occupation might be clearer on those records?

It's there on the snippet. I think it says Mary Adam's father was THOMAS, Occupation TURNER It's below Henry Walsh's name, whose occupation (I think) may be INTERPRETER, but unsure... I've added another snippet. Henry's son was a Tailor, so unless there's a word similar to Interpreter in the tailoring business, he didn't follow his father's profession.

There you go.
I think Thomas but not sure of Henry's occupation. Maybe Interpreter?

Ha! Why yes, I did mean 1858 not 1585!

"Dr Howard and wife" left on Emma Eugenia from Australia to Singapore on 6 July 1858. I was hoping to find someone with this list (or where to find it) so I could check if "Dr. Howard" is John Simpson Howard, and Mary Ann (Sheehan) Howard his wife.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/66009327?searchTerm=Howard&searchLimits=exactPhrase%7C%7C%7CanyWords%7C%7C%7CnotWords%7C%7C%7CrequestHandler%7C%7C%7CdateFrom&fbclid=IwAR2QDpzynZYuFZA_a6FLxSHAgpN9ojkObSm-TQOCpciudIMRwrgYayHtFa0

Does two months for the arrival in Singapore seem excessive? Perhaps stops on the way?
I saw the ship mentioned in an entry "in the harbour" rather than "arrived"
for August 28th, so it may have arrived much earlier and was waiting to for cargo before departing for China. I've not found any passenger list.

On 08 July 1585 the Emma Eugenia went on to Singapore. A "Dr. Howard and wife" were passengers on this leg of the voyage. Does anyone have the passenger list or know where I should look for this? I am looking for Dr. John Simpson Howard and wife Mary Ann (Sheehan) Howard. Thanks!

Did you mean 08 July 1858 or 1585? If 1858, you might try http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/newspapers/Digitised/Search?ST=1&AT=search&k=%22Emma%20Eugenia%22 which mentioned the Emma Eugenia arriving 2nd September 1858. However I'm not sure it would have taken nearly 2 months to get there from Fremantle.
