The original passenger manifest lists Booth under female so its possible, as the date of birth is correct, that it is her (but not confirmed)
Do you know when William Booth died and did she leave NZ after that? It was during WW1 so unlikely she could get a passage back to England  then. Did she have chn or family living in Australia that she could go to in 1917?

Just a further update ? on Vulenza Booth.
An Ancestry tree has her husband William Booth admitted to Auckland Charitable Aid Board in 1924 and dying in 1934( buried with his parents d 1896) at Linwood cemetery. The funeral arranged by Mrs W Dick who was his daughter Eliza Mary Booth who married William Dick in 1903 at Linwood.
Although you may already have all of this, it does point to either Vulenza leaving him and/or predeceasing him but where? Vulenza is not buried with him.

I can not find a  death  anywhere in NZ  for her, it possible  her oldest son  william henry is in  OZ  but I waiting  on a death  cert for  here in NZ that may be  him  in 1924, as when  dad  dies  he only   child  that  they dont  know  where   he  is. I know   william was in  Auckland in 1907  as picked  up  by police. Eliza and William DICk are my GGgrand parents, so I will double  check all their  kids  and see if the dad William  stays with  them  till he goes to the  hospital  in 1924  or after but had trouble  with  electoral rolls ie  finding right  rolls in time span.  If   cert that coming  is  wrong  one  then will have to  look for  William Henry in OZ he  born  20 Aug 1876 Christchurch, New Zealand, as  other blokes  by  same  name I have sorted  and not  mine.
Between Vulenza and  william henry  I have  had a   big headache  lol

Hi finally got cert  for  william henry booth  and he died 1924 NZ  so if  it vulenza in 1917  going to  sydney, it not to family. I have all the rest  of  this family group except Vulenza, I hoping fresh eyes  may find  her.

Hi kinky d

Where did you source the details for "Mrs BOOTH - age 66 "   ship Victoria - departing Auckland - 27 Mar 1917 -- arrival port, Sydney ... from ??

shume  ... has also commented on "original shipping manifest listing Mrs BOOTH ... "  ??

The only passenger list I could find for this Victoria voyage (arriving Sydney about 31 March 1917) lists "Mrs BOOTH -- a female passenger" but no age given for any passengers ??  [Source:  ancestry - Unassisted Immigrant Passengers to NSW ]

I only ask because there also appears to be a "Mr A C BOOTH"  amongst the male passengers for this voyage ??
