John Joseph Thomas
« on: Tuesday 17 July 18 06:47 BST (UK) »
I am looking for anyone who is related or knows about JOHN JOSEPH THOMAS born 1886 in Poplar London.  I have found a marriage certificate for him in SYDNEY NSW.  He married FLORENCE THELNING.  His parents were JOHN JOSEPH THOMAS and his mothers maiden name MARAGRET KITT OR KITTS.
He uses other names which have been confirmed.
JOHN JOSEPH GEORGE THOMAS
CHARLES THOMAS
CHARLES WALTERS
He was a Merchant seaman and apparently died in 1940 in Argentina having been dropped off his ship DARTFORD sick.  I say apparently as another record shows him alive after that date, although this could be a wrong match. Any advice on name changes appreciated.

Tragic death - more info here:
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article119977955 "Albert THOMAS aged 16"
and another account
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article16162197 where he is named "Albert Frederick THELENING" aged 17

Modified to add:
Based on his age at death, I'm assuming this is his birth:
Albert F THELENING (19845/1908) Waterloo  mother - Florence

So possibly not the son of John Joseph THOMAS?

Thank you all. 
I continue to search. Cannot find his migration from London to NSW. 
Have had birth dates confirmed and place.  His parents confirmed.
But still lots to find out.
