Robert Dawson LINDSAY- Ireland/England to Australia
« on: Monday 20 May 19 08:29 BST (UK) »
Robert Dawson Lindsay (Lindsey) was born 11 Jun 1857, Cork, Mallow, Ireland.
His Older Brother Thomas James Lindsay (Lindsey) was born 12 August 1850 in Mallow, Cork, Ireland.
Parents Robert and Mary Ann nee Lynch.

Thomas James made his way to Australia via the Ship "Quetta" 28 May 1888.

I am seeking the details of Robert Dawson Lindsay migration to Australia.

Many thanks

Robert LINDSAY, Master Mariner, has a number of entries as a ratepayer in the City of South Melbourne from 1873 to c1897.  He was not the owner of the properties.

Obituary of his wife
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article42848115

Harriett LINDSAY formerly ULYATT nee WRINCH was previously married to George ULYATT/ULLYATT.  He died in 1905.  I can only find the birth of two chn to this couple and one dau died as an infant.

Hi
Thank you to all who have so far contributed to my  initial question plus the extras, which I do have.

The comments and links to a Robert Dawson Linsday with an alias Michael Daly seems one to chase up. And upon looking at the record from the link provided it States he was from Dublin. So not really sure about this person being my man.

 

Its really just the immigration to Australia I am having difficulty discovering.

No certs elude to him being a sailor or master mariner. That's not saying he is not, however paper trail doesn't suggest this.

Where to from here please?
