John Alfred Lee said to be born In Liverpool, Lancashire 18/10/1855, son of a William Lee. No birth, bapt or census records seem to match. He was in Adelaide, South Australia by 1875, trained as an able seaman on the SA naval ship, Protector and had a stint on a merchant ship which went up the east coast and back. In 1882 he married Mary Ann Foreman in Adelaide and subsequently died 14 years later in 1896. Do any of his details ring a bell with anyone in the Uk as there has to be relatives and there must have been knowledge of John A Lee going to SA passed down through the families. Many Thanks, Mark R

Family notices in Trove but nothing else found that helps.

Five children. Don't know if any had middle names that are a clue.
