I dont know how we will go with this as i dont have a great deal on him as yet.

Luke Farraway is his name.

I have him on a passenger list for the Rajahgopaul 13 Sept 1852 arriving in Australia. The passenger has his age noted as 24 and from Middlesex.

The New South Wales death index only has father's name

Reg 6315/1896
Name FARRAWAY LUKE
Father JOHN
Mother UNKNOWN
District GRANVILLE

Any chance we can find a birth for him please? Year of birth would be around 1828. I did find this one but ...... The passenger list has Middlesex for his native place and this birth is London:confused:

A possibility for sure:

Enfield Town is the historic town centre of Enfield, formerly in the county of Middlesex and now in the London Borough of Enfield. It is 10.1 miles (16.3 km) north north-east of Charing Cross. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.
