McGowen on 1921 Census anyone?
« on: Thursday 07 March 13 20:59 GMT (UK) »

I wonder if anyone could do a Look-up for me please?

I'm looking for Joseph Henry McGowen, born 25th April 1890 in Redfern, Sydney, NSW. He was married to Alice Muriel, (I'm not sure of her maiden name) and in 1919 she was in Watarah, NSW, awaiting his return from serving in France in the 1st Pioneer Battalion during WW1. He was a Surveyor and Civil Engineer, and so I expect that he would have been working in this field at the time of the 1921 Census.

Cheers, Romilly.

I can't see a census for 1921 but there is this info.

In the 1936 electoral rolls he and Alice Muriel are living at 23 Bathurst Street Liverpool. His occupation is civil engineer and hers home duties.

still there in 1937

1943 and 1949 at 33 Goulburn Street, Joseph is a shire engineer. Living at the same address is a Frank Noel McGowan, a fitter.

Hi Romilly,
   This doesn't answer your question but I notice that there is a probate package at NSW state records
http://investigator.records.nsw.gov.au/ResultList.aspx for Joseph Henry McGowan who died 13/11/1967.

Is this him and do you have this?  (I am going to NSW SRO today and could look this up for you)

regards,

Hi Ros,

No, I don't have this, - and I can't seem to access it from the UK. And yes please, - I should be very grateful if you could look this up for me.

Many thanks, Romilly.
