ADAMSON, William Henry - d. 08 Sep 1943, Melbourne
« on: Monday 08 June 15 01:14 BST (UK) »
On behalf of a friend, I am researching this family. The following is all the information I have been provided with:

QUOTE
The Argus (Melbourne), 21 October 1937.
Deaths. ADAMSON.
On 13th October at the residence of his daughter, Mrs R Shrape, Joseph Thomas ADAMSON, the dearly loved father of Blanche (Dec), Emily (Dec), Ruby and brother of Ted and Bill. Aged 87.
UNQUOTE

Daughter's surname may be SHARPE as opposed to Shrape. It is believed parents William and Mary (m.s. WALKER) ADAMSON did not emigrate.

The following may be William (Bill) Henry who was noted as "shoe maker" in London on the 1881 Census.
William H Adamson
Occupation: Boot Repairer
Death Date: 08 Sep 1943
Event Place: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Residence City: W. Brunswick
Event Date: 09 Nov 1943
Series Number: 349
Record Number: 613
Digital Folder Number: 004105324, Image Number: 00025

If further information from my acquaintance is forthcoming, I shall add it.

ANY information would be gratefully received.
