Thank you majm. I am reading this as Benjamin Carr giving an expert opinion in a dispute between a mine manager and engineer. Could the outcome of this dispute have re bounded on Benjamin resulting in him no longer being able to work as a mining engineer?
Itís certainly food for thought.

Hi judb thank you for this.
The reference for Benjamin Carr in Sydney is Sands Directory Of Sydney 1885 showing a Benjamin Carr running a boarding house at 185 Clarence Street. It would be interesting to find out if he had any family with him and his age.

Hi Hume, thank you for responding.
 
Joseph Carr brother of Benjamin was an insolvent publican living in Chilwell in 1861. He died in 1871 and his re married not long after. I felt that this may have been a time that Benjamin decided to move on resulting in the journey to Sydney. Since I posted last night a letter has come to light on this post which is very interesting.

Hi again judb.

Almost forgot, I think Benjaminís wife Jane May have been looking for him in that area around 1879 as their daughter Sarah Jane Carr was married on 25 December of that year and neither parent was at the wedding. On the 1881 census she states she is a widow, I think she may have declared him dead to unlock any estate or assets they had. Only an assumption by me.

Hi now I am really confused:
Firstly in 1868 Joseph and Benjamin register a patent for a pump in Australia. Now Joseph is supposed to be a publican in ? England dying in 1871. This cannot be the same man.
There is a Joseph Carr dying Sydney who was a publican and running a house of disrepute but this is not Benjamin's brother.

Hi shume the pump was patented in 1858 not 1868. The facts about Joseph are correct, they come from his descendants this is Australia we are talking about not England. I have lots of stuff from them about Joseph and he is well researched by them. They still live in Australia and NZ.

I am probably misreading that, but how can he die in 1871 and then remarry not long after.
