If this is yours, Dave.. He's still in Yorkshire in 1855, so that narrows it a bit more.. 1855-1858.

Oh!

If he was in Australia before 1858 he may have travelled back to England, especially for his father's death in 1858..

EDIT: He appears to be in most of the E/R's up to 1859, difficult to see when he would have travelled/arrived..

Thanks Geoff.

Carr House fits so a bit of a puzzle. He may have been in Australia at the time of his father's death and returned to England and then travelled back to Australia.

He auctioned his brewery and house in Jan 1856. Its quiet a large article as they have listed everything that is been auctioned so just posting a snippet.
