Thanks for looking. Yes, another hard one. :rolleyes:

I don't know if that might be Richard using his middle name or not. That looks like a coastal steamer.

Can't find them on Assisted lists so looks like unassisted. Not all the Unassisted lists are on-line.

Well, the Mariners site has one hit for 1909 and nothing for the other variations of the name.

Did the family live in Bundaberg?

The name was originally de Avenell / d'Avenell. HERE

Very old family name. Goes back before 1066.

This is the same notice in another paper but still difficult to read:

Morning Bulletin (Rockhampton, Qld. : 1878 - 1954) - Thursday 18 January 1883 p.2
DEPARTURES
JANUARY 17 - LEICHHARDT 440 TONS Captain W. Cottier
For Brisbane via ports. Passengers... K. Avenell...

I think that is R. Avenell. It's a K or the top of the R is missing.
