Thanks gibbo.

So George Todd in passenger list is not the right one.

No Todd family on that vessel.

On-line passenger lists to SA seem to end at 1855.
Just confirms the Kensington address..

Last week I planned to go to the State Library this week but other things have delayed that. There is usually more info on marriage and death records in SA in a series of books.

Wonder if James died in Victoria.
The Express and Telegraph (Adelaide, SA : 1867 - 1922) Fri 2 Nov 1877 Page 2 Family Notices
TODD—ATKINSON.—On the 10th of Octo
ber, at the Wesleyan Chapel, Redhill, by the
Rev. S. S. Moncrieff, George, the eldest son of
Mr. James Todd, Broughton, to Sarah, eldest
daughter of Mr. James Atkinson, Broughton,
formerly of Strathalbyn.

James alive in 1873 and by this alive in 1877.

Can't see a notice for the 1885 marriage in post #1.
