Could these two photos be the same man about ten years apart?

Australia / William George Rollings arrival
« on: Monday 14 January 19 07:05 GMT (UK)  »
I'm scrapbooking again, I have been trying to find an arrival for William George Rollings, born 1816-18 in Essex, his death certificate says he arrived around 1841, in Victoria.

His wife Eliza nee Carman arrived in 1852 with her sister under the name of Hoyle on the Isle of Skye. They married in 1853 in Vic, I don't need any other information but I would like to find his arrival if possible.
I have considered that he may have arrived as a convict but can't find one that matches.

Australia / James Frederick Star
« on: Tuesday 28 August 18 06:11 BST (UK)  »

The Granya Pioneer Museum has just acquired for our collection, a horse drawn wagon which was used by James Star 1852-1930. He apparently carried supplies from the Albury Wodonga towns up the Murray River to settlers along the way. He selected land in the Granya area in 1879 and established himself there.

I am trying to find any information about his days carrying freight, he seems to have had a Hawkers Licence in 1913. Can anyone find any mention of him in Sands Directory or anything similar.

We already have details of his arrival in Australia and his family so there is no need to search for any family information.

Thanks mum mum

Australia / Elizabeth Nelson death

I came across this mention of an Elizabeth Nelson who died suddenly at Peaks Ferry in 1885.

I can't find a death record or Coroners report to find any more information about her.

Australia / Percy Charles Edward Westmoreland WW1
« on: Wednesday 27 April 16 08:26 BST (UK)  »
A lady asked me for help finding her Grandfather's WW1 Records, he apparently put his age up to enlist in WW1, and put his age down to enlist again in WW2.
Place of birth London in 1903, his Father was Joshua Watson Westmoreland, I can see records for his brother John Frederick in WW1 but not him. I wonder if he enlisted under a different name.
His Grand Daughter has two sets of medals, supposedly from each war.

I'm searching for the service record of Frederick Christian Muller, born 1878 at Bethanga Victoria, father John, mother Hannah. Need it for a speech on Anzac day and just can't locate his records.
Thanks mum mum

Australia / GG Grandparents children
« on: Wednesday 29 April 15 10:02 BST (UK)  »
These are the children listed on my GG Grandparents death certificates, I have put them side by side to compare them.
Jane Warren married Edward Occleston in Melbourne in 1849, Edward died in 1850, Jane then married William Hanley in 1851. We can find births for all but the first and last children and are struggling to decipher the name of the first one. Not sure if this is a child of the Occleston marriage or the Hanley one. The marriage certificate from 1851 only gives their names and the witnesses, nothing about previous marriage or children.
