Well as far as we know he left Sydney, maybe he left Fremantle.   Due to the various change of occupations, from Butcher to Baker, to Pearler for a number of years, Licensee of Dampier Hotel in Broome, then Barman in Perth, then back to Butcher over in Canada, and Carpenter.   When he got back to England he was Licensee of a Pub in Reading, so that hopefully fits in with him.
Due to this amazing family DNA match in Broome, where he allegedly fathered 2 children, we just want to get all the facts absolutely correct.

Hi again,
Yes that is what worries me, I also saw one for 1926 in Perth.   But I have also heard that Electoral Rolls may not always be correct, they can overlap with the years.

But certainly we have Court records of January, 1925, saying that a Goddard had fathered two children in 1925, but unfortunately no christian name given.   We have a Henry Goddard in our family.

Jan


1925 Electoral Roll
Broome
Harry GODDARD, a shop assistant, residing Roebuck Bay Hotel, Broome.

1925 Electoral Roll
Perth
Harry GODDARD, a barman, residing McNeil Chambers, Barrack St, Perth .

So perhaps at least two possible chaps named Harry GODDARD in W.A in 1925

If we can find shipping records from Broome or Derby to Fremantle, we may then be able to confirm the correct gentleman.

....

Yes, in that era, the electoral office relied on people notifying them when they moved, and when they re-enrolled, the electoral office could of course follow up and check that they had been removed from their previous electoral roll. 

But you mention births of two children.   The W.A. bdm has births indexed and displayed online up to 1932...  So perhaps you could consider seeking the birth certs... https://bdm.justice.wa.gov.au/_apps/pioneersindex/default.aspx

Does that passenger list give you information about any relatives - names/addresses etc remaining in Australia?  Or perhaps where his passport was issued?
