This is the one in my tree.

Birth Reg# 17466/1852 ADLAM Arthur - Samuel Harriet b. Melbourne, Vic.
Denomination: Church of England Parish: St James Melbourne Fiche: 298


I don't know if the 1930 at Kippax st is correct.

Death 5840/1931 ADLAM ARTHUR - JOHN LOUISA - GRANVILLE

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wed 3 Jun 1931 p.10
DEATHS
ADLAM.-May 30, 1931, at Lidcombe, Arthur James, only brother of the late Henry William Adlam, of Sydney, age 84. Privately interred in his family grave, Rookwood, June 1.

The one in my tree had one older brother Henry William born Tasmania in 1848. Parents as John and Louisa are both wrong and age is out by 5 years so either the informant had no idea or it's not my Arthur and it's coincidence he has a brother Henry William. The bit about burial in family grave also makes no sense if it's my Arthur because he would be alone in that grave.

Val, I am totally confused.

Ellen nee Vickers born 1856 and died 1880. They were living at 26 Palmer st.

Ellen's father Joshua was a convict so ref to an Ellen in trouble with the law would be that one. Also, ref to Arthur would be my Arthur.

Arthur Adlam
Birth Place: Melbourne, Vic.
Age: 18
Vessel Arrived In: Born in Colony
Date of Admission/Photo: Sep 1872
Gaol: Darlinghurst
Gaol Location: Darlinghurst, NSW
Record Type: Description Book

I've seen nothing that gives his occupation as bootmaker to confirm it's the one in the electoral rolls.

Henry William was a bootmaker. Father Samuel was a groom.

BELLA ADLAM 50 13/11/1915 Zone C T 10709

Same grave so it has at least 2 in it.

Need something to show he was a bootmaker.

Thanks Geoff.

I have 5 hrs 30 min to order a death certificate transcription for $18 instead of $20 :biggrin: September Saturday special. Bet Bella was the informant and the certificate won't help at all. Wrong middle name, wrong parents , age out 5 years.

No sign of a marriage to Bella.

Looks as though both were bootmakers. Lots of different addresses from 1897 to 1931 for Arthur.

Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Fri 27 Dec 1895 Page 4
Accidents.
A bootmaker named Henry Adlam, 26, residing
at Clarence-street, was thrown out of a cart
early this morning, receiving an injury to the
nose, and a number of abrasions on the face.
He was treated by Dr. Rutter at Sydney Hospital.

That must be Henry junior.

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - SURRY HILLS - SURRY HILLS POLLING-PLACE
ADLAM Henry William, 511 Crown-street, bootmaker
ADLAM Sarah Ann, 511 Crown-street, domestic duties
ADLAM Henry, junior, 511 Crown-street, clerk
ADLAM Richard Thomas, 511 Crown-street, bootmaker
ADLAM Samuel Alfred, 511 Crown-street, packer
ADLAM Sarah, junior, 511 Crown-street, packer

Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Fri 19 Jan 1900 Page 6
Richard Adlam, 21, a bootmaker, was convicted
at the Water Police Court yesterday, before
Mr. Wilshire, S.M., of attempting to steal a pair
of spectacles, from the person of Christopher
Crane. He was fined £3, or fourteen days, and
was allowed seven days to pay.

Richard in trouble again later.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tue 7 Dec 1926 p.8
MR. H. W. ADLAM.
The death occurred yesterday of Mr. H. W. Adlam, an old resident of Sydney. Mr. Adlam, who was 78 years of age, had been a bootmaker in Clarence-street, city, for 60 years. His wife predeceased him two years ago.
