When did Phyllis Mary LEWIS arrive in Australia?
« on: Saturday 02 February 13 23:50 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Phyllis Mary Lewis was born 1914 Broom, Bidford on Avon Warwickshire, daughter of Arthur Lewis and Florence May Busby. Married Alexander Gunning in Australia when she was 18.  Her death registration 1975, states she had been in the country 61 years, which would mean she left the UK as a baby.

I haven't found her on passenger lists leaving the UK.  Can she be found in any arrival lists?

Regards

Sorry ... wrong family with my first post but this might be her...


UK Outward Passenger List
 Departed 26th May 1921
From London to Melbourne
SS "Beltana"
P&O Branch Service

LEWIS from Warwickshire
David 11
Edith 14
Dorothy 9
Phyllis 6

Looks like they were with a George H SMITH TOMLINSON 47 Labourer  and Florence TOMLINSON 46 Housewife from Broom Bideford on Avon.. does that sound possible??

Given my modified post above... could Phyllis's father have died and her mother Florence remarried to Mr TOMLINSON??

Hmmmm

Interesting Sue... the first family I posted on this thread had father William LEWIS...  but mother was Sarah?

Wonder who gave the information at Phyllis's death?
