The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Tuesday 17 May 1870 p.4
Walker.-On the 16th March, in the 84th year of his age, at his residence, Wakefield, Yorkshire, England, Joshua Walker, Esq., the beloved father of Mr. Joshua Walker, of Sandhurst, Victoria.
Oh. Again.

The Probate record lists two sons, William Henry and George, and I had both of them dead by 1850. :rolleyes:

Will have to find their correct deaths after 1870.
We have some clues in the Probate notice.

William Henry of Wakefield, banker's clerk ** born 4 Dec 1836

George of Holloway, Middlesex, druggist ** born 21 Nov 1840
