So would this put him in Australia before 1912? :confused:

FMP has this

HYNES Robert Unknown M 1912 London Australia Sydney

Maybe someone who has access might be able to help with more info for this index.
 
Thanks. That would fit.

Index to 1911:

HYNES ROBERT 1893 18 Oldham Lancashire

There are others but ruled out by age.

Births Dec 1894
Hynes Robert - S. Shields 10a 795


If death reg is correct then parents are Morris and Sarah. Can't find the marriage.

Lots of Sarah HYNES in Lancashire and a few elsewhere in England in 1911 but none in Oldham.

No Morris HYNES in 1911 index and no birth and no death in England.

Thanks Woody. And thanks Steve.

This one in the census:

Name Robert Hynes
Relationship to Head of Household Son
Age 18
Estimated Year of Birth 1893
Occupation Cotton Mule Peicer Operative
Place of Birth Middleton Lancs


Parents seem to be Gerald & Mary and not Morris & Sarah so I'd say the Robert we are after was probably not born in England.

A 'Cotton Mule Peicer Operative' would not be a 'Compositor' either.

It's looking more as though Robert was born in N America.
 
My great grandfather was a compositor who worked in the 1880s for his uncle who was the proprieter of the 'Gladstone Observer' newspaper.

He died in 1951 and this is the last Electoral roll entry I have:

1949 QLD Electoral Roll - Petrie - Windsor
HAMILTON William, Morris st., Wooloowin, manufacturer's agent :D

I have no idea what he was selling.
