Newspaper lists the arrival of the 'Gladstone' on 7 October with 358 ? (hard to read) immigrants.

The arrival is not listed on one Shipping Arrival site.

If the name is not Maston then I can't find a death for William.

If the name is Maston then I can't find a death for Joseph.

The ditto indicates the name is the same but does not mean they have to be related.

No Maston deaths in NSW with father = Samuel

No male or female Maston marriages in NSW to 1881 - 1900.

No female Mastow and only the one male Mastow, which I think is an error. I will try to get that checked.

It would seem William arrived alone.

Births Dec Qtr 1863
MASTON William Otley 9a 111
