This has muddied the waters even more  ;D
I am so confused!



And according to the above
...”James King died on 20 August 1891 at the age of 82 at his home in Station Street, Carlton. According to his death certificate he had been a gardener by occupation, and had died of old age. His father was also named James King, but the details of his mother were unknown. James had been born in Essex, England, and had lived in Tasmania for ten years before moving to Victoria where he resided for forty years. The informant, his brother Henry King of Collingwood....”

According to the above his son James KING also died 1891, a few weeks before his father.
Also mentions Louisa King, eldest daughter of James and Maria, married a William Everett in 1888.

This 1891 death looks like the father James KING and mentions daughter Mrs Everret [sic]

This death 1891 must be the son James KING

Yep, that seems to be the right ones there. Thanks for that, CupOfLife!

Just hoping for a shred of detail on their lives before coming to Aus!
