Might those abbreviations be something to do with some naval service record abbreviations:

PVR - Premature Voluntary Release

PO/ -  service number prefix for Portsmouth Division

Y39 - his age?  But 1908discharge - 1874birth = 34

Thanks very much everyone for all your leads.  It's amazing how names/words get distorted over time, but I am pretty sure Ashrafi Juzur sounds about right.  After a lot of mucking about I actually got Gt Uncle Tony's naval records as a stoker then signaller.
Was wondering if anyone new what the entry "Joined P or RyR POB Y39 6.8.08 means?

Its known that Anthony Samuel Taulbut settled in Canada in 1908 under some migration/settlement scheme.  He went on to be an active and innovative member in the early days of Mission City and most of the artefacts in the Mission museum belonged to him.  He migrated with 52 boxes!

Once again thanks for your help everyone.

Europe / Re: Decipher German? Artist's signature

Thanks so much for this.  I thought the first name was Emil, but try as I may with the Sutterlin alphabet I couldn't decipher the surname to research a bit further.

All I knew was that these etchings were by a well known artist and were possibly a wedding present.

Great to have your help.

Europe / Decipher German? Artist's signature

Please could someone help with the name of the artist/sketcher in the attachment.

The artist may have come from Hameln or Hannover.

Poppy, Whilst I am not much help at translating this.  I know that this script is called Suetterlin and you can download the alphabet from the internet. But I found more help by posting on MyHeritage in the German forum.

Thanks for the tech help.

Thought that if I acknowledged copyright it would be ok. Better just attach snip.

As I have been searching for this ancestor for a while, it may have been uploaded in another post.  OR..... somebody else is interested in Charles Anthony Brown/e TOO!

Have had a look at the Word version of the Census for 1861 and it has "U.M." on it.  So I shall take that as unmarried and will have to work a bit harder for info on this illusive ancestor.
