Well, it appears that someone else has been looking at this, but not made the Australian connection a definite:

https://www.british-genealogy.com/forum/threads/81317-ALFRED-LEVEY-JEANETTE-FLORA-DAVIDSON

Given the birth details, provided by Wivenhoe in reply #13, it looks like the same man to me.

Canada 1861:

Mother Gertrude a widow: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MM78-NY2

Alfred: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MM78-NYZ

He has quite a few siblings.

Hi Jamjar, Thank you for all your detailed research. An article on Trove mentions him leaving Orroroo SA in July 1892 under interesting circumstances. He then had a son in Queensland in 1894 with Ida Maud Thomas who was born near Orroroo in 1875. They eventually returned to SA and married in 1898. I think it is reasonable to assume he had a 'past' when he went to Tasmania. kind regards, Geoff.

Hi Essie, This what I have found about Ida Maud Thomas.

Alfred was married 9 November 1898 in Adelaide. South Australia to IDA MAUD THOMAS born 12 June 1875 at Pekina. (a locality just south of Orroroo) South Australia to parents Thomas Thomas and Ada Elizabeth Winfield married in South Australia in 1865. Thomas Thomas died 25 May 1883 at Saltia. SA aged 39 years and Ada Thomas died 3 December 1914 in Adelaide aged 68 years and 8 months.

It would appear Alfred John Levey's brother Joseph Edwin Levey born in 1850 in Montreal came to Australia. He died in 1917 at Paddington. NSW. His death record shows John and Gertrude as his parents.

He and his wife Sarah had a Jewish burial, at Rookwood.

Again the same person has Joseph covered: https://www.british-genealogy.com/forum/threads/81227-JOSEPH-EDWIN-LEVEY-SARA-COHEN

The marriage is incorrectly transcribed:

1117/1874 LEVEY Joseph to COHEN Lara SYDNEY

Have you tried contacting this Phillip, Geoff?
