His wife was on the Lammershagen with him when he arrived. That would explain why i couldnt find a marriage for him after he got here... he was already married to her:rolleyes:

Hii Dave,


And the one Steve is looking for was born in England as well

Births Jun 1855
Stevens Orlando William Bicester 3a 522


I've been looking to see if there is anything in the Aussie records of the Orlando we got info on to confirm its the same Orlando as the above birth. Pity the passenger list didnt have place of birth or native place on it.
 
Yes. I've searched and all I found was a different Orlando. :rolleyes:

I can see no Orlando in 1881 in England and no death in England so it looks as though it's the one born in 1855. Age is a bit out in the 1877 shipping record. I can't find a birth in England 1850-1860 for any Alaide.

I can see not deaths of children in Queensland that would give the mother's maiden name.

:2fun::2fun: I found a american cyclist with the same name here in Australia for a what seems to be a riding competition in 1904:biggrin:


For Steve's fella how does this sound.

Born in England
Migrated to Germany and married. Could explain why no marriage in England.
Come to Australia
Went back to England
I cant find a death for either him or his wife in England. Maybe went back to Germany or there abouts:confused::confused::confused:
