Dave i found this in the NSW archives

MARTIN Thomas aged 19 ship Northbrook 1878.

More than likely not your fella but i cant read the native place and country to rule him out for sure.
Can you have a look and see what you think if you havent already seen it. Page 13 of the passenger list it is.

Thanks gibbo. :)

That fits except for the born Cornwall bit.


"T.H." was the second son of the late W.H. Martyn, head of an old Cornish family, and was born in Finchley (London) in the year 1860. According to his elder brother, his boyhood already showed him as one destined to lead and direct others, and "Tom" was invariably the leading spirit in all games and exploits.

Coming to Australia as a young man in 1884, he, in turn, tried various forms of occupation, and finally commenced in business for himself at Goulburn, where he married Miss Alice Furner.

Yes, name of ship and date. It may or may not be the right one. I wish the date was on the index or that the results showed zero hits if the entered date was not correct.
