He was born at the South Shields, England, in 1870, and after following his profession in various parts of the world, was appointed engineer of the steamer Warraner(?), and came to Australia in the vessel nearly thirteen years ago.

to reply no 1, Sarah is Sarah Wright, nee Rowan, wife of Robert Gowland Wright and they were the parents of the Peter Wright born in 1893, and went to Australia in Oct 1927.

that threw me for a little till the other replies came in and studying them all today, I think I can unravel most of the details and build a lot onto my late wife's family tree.

Most grateful to all who have contributed.
