    Well that sounds very similar to my Thomas Edward, the only details we can go on were provided by his Grandson following his death. So I am starting to believe he may have jumped ship in Melbourne and headed to the gold fields and changed his name to avoid capture. The next step for me is also...

    There appear to be some Sea Mariner records of deserters etc so I’ll keep checking them as it’s the only answer as to why we cannot find any record of him, his parents or siblings.

    I totally understand your frustration Gibbo, the last avenue now is to check for people who jumped ship in Melbourne.

    No Gibbo, my Thomas Edward didn't have a William.

William Jeffery Westlake 1842– BIRTH 1842 •...

    Unfortunately no one can confirm exactly where he was born as the only information we have to go on was noted on his Death Certificate by his Grandson.

    Hi Gibbo, after reviewing the BC's for both Willie and Harold, i have made the assumption that Thomas's birth year is most likely 1841 and i noticed his wife has stated he was from London, England. So he maybe the Thomas Edward Westlake born in 1841 in Stepney, London is actually him.
