Sorry! No details of any of Thomas' siblings, yet. We only found his birth in Australia this week and tracked back through the 1901 English Census. The family's assumption had always been that he had been born in England. The birth in Australia came as complete surprise.

A news snip from when the couple were in Victoria, gives Robertís employment details at that time. 1892. The paper was local to Coburg, close to Brunswick where Ann, Eliza and Lily were born.

A great result and still growing! A week ago this story didn't exist. I have sent all your info to my friend, who is the grandson of Thomas Simister.

He is going away tonight for about ten days touring NSW. Keep the info flowing, but I won't respond until he arrives home.

Appreciate your efforts.
