There is another tree on Ancestry - I searched this time for Albert Victor - which links the two brothers, and includes a photograph of Abraham from, I think, his criminal record in Australia.

It would appear that A. Swaebe Reg. # 20305 was indeed Albert Victor Swaebe who is an older brother (b. 1877) to Abraham Adolph Swaebe.   So 'Adolph' which he seemed to prefer being known by has dropped off the radar from 1892 after he was given H.L. for  stealing.  So if he used an alias after his release , it will be very difficult to find later information on him.  Perhaps he left Australia and possibly went to New Zealand where my search will continue.

They would appear to be a Jewish family who came to England from Belgium.  Tks to everyone.

He was a younger brother. Abraham/Adolph would have been 4 or thereabouts when Albert was born.

re:  BumbleB    -  It would appear that ancestry has placed Adolph in Lyell, Westland, South Island but that relates to another person, within this relationship.  However, it is very possible that Adolph did 'jump the ditch' if only I could find him.

As I said, I can't see the full details.  Good luck!

I'll really need some!
At least I can eliminate out the 'A. Swaebe' the soldier in Boer War.  Late 1890's and early 1900's are the crucial time for my research.

A A Swaebe is a relative of mine.I can find nothing on him after about 1894 when he was released from jail. With all his aliases and the different variation of Swaebe he has been difficult to trace.The tree with him being in NZ is not correct.
