Plus many others in between those.
Thanks Dave, yes a good way to see when he was in Brisbane. With shipping arrivals, I am sometimes lucky enough to find passengers who weren't in steerage listed in the Arrivals. Have made contact with Ellen's great great granddaughter and we are brainstorming possibilities!!

On the fastest possible voyage in both directions I can't see how he could have left Brisbane.

Average 100 days and fastest 72 days.

Hmm Dave. Useful timeline thanks. Alfred snr had to run into Ellen somewhere in Brisbane's early society. Why would a widow travel under her maiden name on a voyage to Australia perhaps. Appreciate your taking the time to post those links. Justice Sarah Berry aka Jessie Berry wrote a novel called "Hail Australia" under the name of Justicia, I am informed. On another note, I can't see a problem with Alfred snr's son Edward marrying Ellen's daughter Faith, as they were not blood relations of any kind. Likewise, Faith's daughter Jean Dawe, marrying Edward's son, Ernest Alfred, had no blood relation involved. The thrill of the chase continues.
