In scrolling through newspaper articles and other material available online, there is reference to 'George Mellish, appointed by Hare (A police commissionar) to head the local (meaning in Perth) C.I.B.' and that he retired ahead of completing his 5 year appointment before returning to England in 1904

Thanks and again, apologises. I really messed up with this posting for help. Indeed, the family group that I am interested is searching for is the MELLISH one. I had thought that George and Harriet had travelled with one of their daughters but it looks as though 2 of them went with them, namely Amy and Edith. I would appeal for further help in making any trace of them after they emigrated. Thankyou

Don't worry about the mess up with dates etc.. It often happens and is sorted now ;D

If you think it is AMY and EDITH who travelled to Australia with them, Why is it F MELLISH arriving.

Edith married here and the other returned with her parents.

I found other messages on this site which gave me details of the deaths of Edith's children. It looks as though most of them died in infancy

The obit for William Arthur SAVAGE says that he leaves a widow and 11 children in 1952.  It lists most of them.   I posted details of some of their weddings and world war 2 service etc.    They did NOT die in infancy.   Have a read through the posts and click on the links.   Just take it slowly ... :)

Amy married in England, I believe.
I have given some details of her likely whereabouts as Mrs SUMNER.
