TODD.Brothers, Mervon/Mervyn, Arthur, Walter
« on: Tuesday 23 June 15 00:13 BST (UK) »
Hi, I was wondering if someone could do a Electoral role lookup for the above brothers. I am after their respective occupations. I know that both Mervyn and Arthur were Boxers but wondered if they held other skills and did other work to supplement their incomes? Also what Walter did for a living.
Mervyn was born 1902 Sydney, Married in 1935 Randwick to Emily WATSON, Died 1963.
Walter was born 1904 sydney, Married 1928 Queanbeyan Elsie JOHNSTON, Died after 1985.Lived the majority of his life Canberra/Queanbeyan
Arthur was born 1906 Sydney Married 1928 Hurstville to Ellen IRVING died 1946.

I have most of their respective details but if SKS could do a lookup that would be most appreciated.

Cheers

Neil

Thanks for all that, odd with him as a female, very unusual BOXER ::) Norton Steet he was with his half brother and his wife apparently. He must have moved back home to Penshurst in 33 to be with his mother, who was not well. She passed away in 33.

Arthur being a machinist now rings tiny little bells. He think he had something to do with Artillery or shell casings, during the war? That seems to fit, now that you have found out the machinist occupation.

Many thanks. It all helps fill in the gaps. :)

Hello
I looked for ElsieJohnston's adWalter Todd'smarriage on ancestry (to see if they had middle initials) and found this
Elsie S Johnston and Walter A Todd   
Marriage - 1925
Registration Place - Hunters Hill, New South Wales
Registration Year  1925
Reg number 17906

which matches the NSW BMD's. Did your finger hit the 8 instead of 5 in your first post?  :)

Hi, Thanks for that. So sorry about the wrong date my transcription error I had it wrong on the tree. Some years back now, so just as well corrected. The Aingier is his mothers maiden name, so never knew that :D The Marie is a mystery will have to see what I can find out about her.

Really appreciated. Nice to have just that little more detail on their lives.
