Emigration lookup (to Australia)
« on: Wednesday 06 February 19 18:59 GMT (UK) »
If anyone has accces to outward passages records could they look up the following

Alfred Hollingsbee
Queensland, Australia, Passenger Lists, 1848-1912

If its the person I am interested in the event would most likely have taken place in the perod 1881-1891 with the person being born in 1861 in Kent.

Possible death record -

Alfred Hollingsbee
Death Date - 03 Jan 1944
Death Place - Queensland
Father's name - Henry
Mother's name - Harriet

Alfred's baptism shows his parents as Henry and Harriet so hopefully the above death record is correct.

Yes they are his parents. His mother died in 1864 and father in 1866 so then it was off to the workhouse for him for a while. No doubt that's why he started afresh in Australia.

Thanks for that, I had a look. Seems rather a silly reason for a divorce, guess there was more to it than the articles tell.

Is there somewhere to look for this stuff? I am trying to find information on Stuart (Stewart) Glassford McDonald who arrived in Sydney about 1846-47 on a ship called the Gazelle. He was about 10 so would have been with his parents, John McDonald and Mary (nee Stuart). Any help gratefully appreciated, this has been an annoying dead end for a while. Geoff

Information before or after his arrival - how did you find the ship's name?
