The above is my 4 great uncle. Prob went to Australia in 1879 on board Cyphrenes London to Sydney. Another G. Searston aged 21 with him but not sure who he is or even if I have the right G. to be George. Left his wife at home but A trees have her going out in 1881 on Earl Dalhousie to Brisbane and then remarrying a Henry Ruddy in 1885 at Ipswich, Queensland.
His father was Wm Searston and mother Hannah Nailor so death on A is correct having death 1882 in Queensland with mother Nailer.

Would love to more if possible and confirmation it was his wife who went out.

I would have liked to know if it is def George going out in 1879 as it just says G and there is another G with him, who I would like to identify, but only if you can easily do that.

Thanks, Gibbo

The 1924 death is George jnr.

Belgian Gardens Cemetery Townsville
Searston George aged 65 internment 08/01/1924 Section D sub division 1 Grave 184
 
I think P. Searston is a brother of George senior. Can't see a death for a P.

A son of P. is a nephew of Mrs G. but which Mrs G.

The 1939 death is one born in Qld. abt 1879.
