Hello,

Ethel THORNLEY b. 1887 Petersham, NSW

Alice Jane THORNLEY b. 1867 Lancashire
Betsy THORNLEY b. 1870 Lancashire

I have them in England in 1911 census.

Can Alice Jane and Betsy/Betsey be found arriving in Australia in 1912 or 1913 or 1914?

Can all three be found arriving in England in 1912 to 1914 on the same vessel?

Is Ethel on the same vessel? If not can Ethel be found arriving back in Australia in 1914 before or after her aunts?

Ethel married in NSW in 1914 but I don't have the full details. I don't know if it was before or after the arrival of her aunts.


There is an alternative theory. :D Ethel never left Australia and the two aunts arrived after Ethel's marriage. Wish I had the date of the marriage.

Regards,

Dave
