Which state did he reside in?

Why are you unsure of his surname?

Where did you get the 1911 from?

Some details of the man would help, e.g. birth year and place of birth, death, sailed from where, etc.

A Joseph Brennan age 21 arrived onboard Kaikoura on 24 Sept 1911 in Queensland.
As you give so little information in your post, I do not know if this is the man you are looking for.

thanks Neale1961, more information Edward Joseph Brennan, known as Joe, born 31st March 1897 in Lisconnor Co Clare Ireland. i was told by one of his sons he came to Sydney Australia in 1911 at the age of 14 (could be 1910 arrival) he later changed his name to his mother's
Which state did he reside in?
Changed name from Brennan to Mergan later in life.
Why are you unsure of his surname?

Where did you get the 1911 from? one of his sons told me.

Some details of the man would help, e.g. birth year and place of birth, death, sailed from where, etc.
Birth 31/3/1897, Lisconnor Co. clare Ireland, think he sailed from Ireland.

There seems to be some confusion.

Here is a 1926 marriage. Is this your person?

2220/1926
MERGAN Edward J
THOMPSON Ruby F
At BALMAIN NORTH

There is not a recorded COSBY/ MERGAN marriage in Randwick in 1926
