Australia / David John BOSLEY - how, and when, did he get to Australia?
« on: Saturday 07 May 11 03:46 BST (UK)  »
Hello All,

I am having trouble trying to find out how and when David John Bosley came to Australia.  What I know is:
    -  he was born 29/9/1854 in Thatcham, Berkshire, England
    -  he married Eliza TAPPING on 26/12/1878 in Liverpool, Sydney
    -  he died 21/6/1926
    -  his parents both died in England which suggests he did not come to Austalia with his parents (ie. not as a child).

One of his obituaries in the newspaper at the time of his death said that he was a "colonist who arrived in the early 70's", but I have still been unable to locate on which ship he came out on.  By trade he was a "paper manufacturer".

Any assistance on locating which ship he arrived on would be really appreciated.

Hello,   :)

Is anybody able to identify where Margarethe was born or who her siblings and family are.  She migrated to Australia sometime before 1887.  I don't know the names of her parents or any siblings, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou.

Lancashire / Elsie HARROP (nee WILLIAMS) b. abt 1893 d. 1932
« on: Monday 07 March 11 23:29 GMT (UK)  »
Hello Everyone,

I am looking for siblings or ancestors of Elsie HARROP (nee WILLIAMS).  I have very little information to go on except she married William Henry HARROP in Jun 1921 registered in Charlton, Lancashire, England.  They had 2 children Phillip in 1921 and Ronald in 1927, and Elsie passed away in 1932 in Ashton, Lancashire, England. 

I believe her parents were Alfred and Caroline WILLIAMS and she had at least 2 sisters:
    -  Alice May  b. abt 1901 and passed away in 1963 in Perth, Western Australia, and
    -  Mabel  b. abt 1902 and passing away in 1951 in Perth, Western Australia.

It is unclear to me why or when Alice and Mabel moved to Western Australia although Alice was married in Perth in 1934.

I am looking for siblings or ancestors of Elsie.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
