So 1889 matches the border crossing age, and Aug 1 is wrong for our illegible mystery boy :(

I think we have to assume the poor lad isn't too sure about ages/dates (given his circumstances) so margin for error a defo ???

You have still turned up another homechild ...There is a Gordon Henry Tongate b. 1891 Blything, Suffolk, England, appears as an inmate in 1901 census as Tomgate so was likely shipped soon after... listed in the BHC database as Tangate.... 
You need to have the exact first few letters now, or you'll not find a partial listing...I found this by using Gordon T*   But if the first letter was wrong, I would not have found it.

Hi, :)

Karen.....thanks, hmmm....would a boy orphaned at birth know his parent's names, anything
is possible I guess.

JJ...just stumbled over Gordon.  :'( he was one of 330 on that passenger list.

Has anyone found parents Harry and Ida?

Cheers,
