This is a summary of what I have found about Alfred John Levey.

ALFRED JOHN LEVEY was born 28 April 1855 in Montreal. Canada. He went to England and married Jeanette Flora Davidson in 1878 at Islington. Their first child, Esther (known as Estella Flora) was born in 1879 at Islington. They then went to South Africa when John was born about 1883 and Gertrude was born about 1884. After returning to England they had the following children. Edward born in 1886 at Islington, Gabriel Henry born in 1887 at Islington, Sophia Marie born in 1889 at Hackney and Henry John born in 1890 at Edmonton.

Alfred John Levey came to Australia and led a bit of a 'dodgy' life. In early July 1892 he suddenly left his watchmaker and jewellery business in Orroroo. South Australia. (Adelaide Observer SA. 30 July 1892). In October 1893 he left his watchmaker and jewellery business in Kilmore. Victoria again without notice. (Kilmore Free Press. Thursday 19 October 1893).

In February 1894 he and Ida Maud Thomas had a child in Queensland. Alfred Levey opened his watchmaker and jewellery shop in High St. Strathalbyn. South Australia in October 1898.
He was married 9 November 1898 in Adelaide. South Australia to IDA MAUD THOMAS.
Alfred and Ida left Strathalbyn and went to Tasmania sometime after May 1900 where they had several more children.  Alfred Levey lived as Frederick Lawrence during the time they were in Tasmania.

In 1909 his daughter, Estella placed advertisements in Australian Newspapers looking for him. She said he had lived in London and South Africa and she now believed he may have came to Australia.

They were in Sydney by 1915. (birth of daughter). Alfred sometimes used the name Stanley Levee. (NSW BDM's 1915 birth of his daughter and other newspaper reports in 1918 relating to passing valueless cheques).
Alfred John Levee died 30 June 1933 at his residence, 24 Leonard Avenue, Kensington. Sydney aged 78 years. No parent's names were recorded on his death certificate.
The New South Wales Index to Deceased Estate Files shows him as a Retired Jeweller.
