Q....
Red Post   Question :  What Queensland document gives you 'Notting Dale'  :)


JM

There is no 'document' that mentions Notting Dale - was literally the house name, just as my address is Little House

My NSW ancestors addresses on various official documents, circa 1880s through to mid 1950s including on  NSW b.c.s frequently included the 'house name' but not the house number,  :)

Watch the spelling of Ralph … clearly printed as ‘Rolf’ on this particular roll.  Females became eligible to enrol to vote shortly after Federation.

Night all, thanks again, amazing!

Why Pearson? Family maiden name ?

Sometimes only the TARDIS will do!

Homely ... what an unusual word ... I think you may find it was the usual practice, not just of my ancestors, but for the non metropolitan districts in regional Qld and in regional NSW until perhaps the mid 1950s ....   I have just been speaking with one of my elderly rellies, on the phone, errr ... he is closer to 110 than to 100 years of age.   Many of the farms etc in and around Bundaberg, Goodnight Scrubs, Mt Perry, etc  Qld, were known by their farm name until very recently, and some did not change over to the 'new' system until this century.   

Re PEARSON,  there still is nothing prohibiting any person from becoming known by any name, provided they were not seeking to deceive or defraud....   He may well have become known as Ralph PEARSON prior to coming to Australia.   It will be easier to check closer once we have learnt what information is on his d.c. re 'how long in the colonies'....
