Blanche M dau 3mths Birmingham Warwickshire

Family arrived in Australia between May 1861 & 20 Aug 1866 ???

I think 'Stationary' is probably statuary = stone mason/sculptor

So is it William senior or William junior aged 59 in 1861? If it's senior where is junior? I can't see junior employing 32 men. So instead of 'wife' it should be 'daughter-in-law' ?

Where is William senior in 1851?

When did William senior and spouse Elizabeth die?

It is the right marriage by this death in Qld:

Death Reg# 25 Nov 1905/B06197 Cook Eliza - William Upton - Mary Hollis

Can the marriage be found for William UPTON & Mary HOLLIS?

Can they be found in census?

When did they both die?

A few loose ends. :biggrin:
