Im not finding anything to even confirm if Thomas and Agnes were here. I cant find a birth reg for Henry L and can't find any passenger lists that indicate its him.
Tho i did find this, most likley nothing but could be worth checking.

Something is not right.

Henry was born 1833 - 1839. Parents on death reg are Thomas and Agnes.

The Thomas who died in 1931 and the Agnes who died in 1950 can't be his parents.

They are probably the ones in post #5.

If that's 37 years ago arrival would be 1858.

He should be in 1841 and 1851 census.

No Henry or Alfred on Assisted to NSW list.

This one would seem to be too old. About 22 years older to be a brother?

MORTIMER Alfred

I can't find anything in Trove.

No death in NSW index for an Alfred with parents Thomas & Agnes.

Are parents from that Asylum record - Alfred & Emily ?? And first spouse Mary ?

No marriage in NSW or Vic. index for Henry before 1863.

Thanks Val.

No sign of Henry on either of those passenger lists.

Yes, twins.

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW) - Sat 22 Jul 1899 p.1
DEATHS
MORTIMER.-On July 19th, at the residence of his son-in-law, 40 Botany-st., Redfern, Henry Lawrence Mortimer, in his 64th year. (Late commercial traveller.)

Only two daughters so that one has to be Minnie because Nellie was living in Vic.

Oh.

More daughters? Where are the birth reg for Emily and Mary?
