Interesting timeline towards the end of his Australian stay.
Court appearance 1925 (I don't have the date)

Probably on Electoral Roll in 1925 at McNeil Chambers, Barrack St, Perth,for the Federal Election held 14th Nov 1925.

Passport issued 21st July 1926
There were documents required and a degree of preparation needed for this issue

Out of the country by ?? to arrive in Canada in October 1926.

With Mum paying and providing accommodation when he arrived :-\ ::)

Wonder if he sold the Ford to cover costs at all :P

Sparrett,
In the Children's Court, Broome
Court Case 141/24 and 142/24 E. Corpus -v- Goddard (no christian name) 5th September, 1924
Illegitimate children
Forbes for the complainant and Florance for the Defendant   (both Solicitors in Broome)
Satisfactory arrangements had been made for the children
Adjourned to 27.1.1925 Broome - withdrawal of Complaints - Withdrawal granted

So maybe he sold the Ford, and if he owned the Pearl Lugger as believed by records, he paid Esther Corpus out.   He had no money left and his Mother paid for his fare to Canada, he worked there for  12 months, (now as a Carpenter !!) and back to Reading in Berkshire where he worked at the Osborne Arms Hotel.

I would accept that as a plausible, though not totally verifiable, course of events.
That seems likely to have been the end of contact between him and his Australian wife and children.

Interesting and sad.

Yes I agree Sue, very sad, and they were the days back in Broome in the early 1900's.   But however, the daughter of Esther had the most amazing life, she married a Pastoralist, who was very involved with Sir Sidney Kidman with the Glenroy and Mornington Stations in the Kimberleys, plus much more interests in the town of Derby W.A.

It was a DNA match that we had with the granddaughter of Esther, we never thought we would ever connect with.  This lady really wanted to know who her Grandfather was.  It has taken us 6 months in research back in England firstly, believing that we had an issue from a child born out of wedlock way back, was not the case, and  finally now, we believe we have the right connection.

Thanks Sue so much for all your help.
