Well Thomas is a sly one...told a few porkies..

I think I have found your Thomas... his Ozzie NAA file has he was in the Lancashire Fusiliers Imperial Service 7 years in 1916 on his Attestation Papers, and the only UK file I can find is -

5304 - Thomas STANLEY Stansfield b in the Parish of Heywood Lancashire age 22 year, a Grinder signed up in Manchester in 18 Feb 1897. Then he goes and Deserts on 19th Feb - Reported for desertion in 24 Feb 1897 to the Police. No note to say he was found....also on question if Married - says NO

Name: Thomas Stanley Stansfield
Gender: Male
Birth Date: abt 1875
Enlistment Age: 22
Document Year: 1897
Residence Place: Haywood, Bury, Lancashire
Regimental Number: 5304
Regiment Name: King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment
Number of Images: 14
Form Title: Short Service Attestation

so going on that is the 1881 census..
1881 census for South Bury – Bury Lancs – 3 Parkhill Street
John Stansfield 28 b Heywood a Grinder
Sophia wife 29 b Bury
Thomas son 9 b Heywood scholar
Hannah daug 6 b Bury
Edward son 1 b Bury
ED 8, Piece 3860, Folio 65, Page 20.

1891 census – Oldham Below Town – Oldham
Thomas 19 a son-in-law b Heywood is Iron Grinder ……???
Mary Stansfield daug age 18 b Oldham Lancs at her parents John and Hannah Lynn’s home

Thomas Stansfield marriage June 1891 Oldham to Mary Lynn Vol 8d page 882
no death for Mary up to 1910 - so did he shoot through on her too, haven't looked to see if she is on 1901 census yet..

Thanks Val.

Yes, I think the grinder in the census is correct.

The pob and occupation fit but age is out again in 1897.

Now we need an arrival.

Dave,
I saw a few arrivals that are possible between 1895 and 1905, there was one around 1904/1905 coming on the "Suevic" that was a close possible but darned if I can find it again

we need arrival after Feb 1897 and before his marriage in NSW.. could he have come in at Qld ?

** found wife Mary on 1901 census and there are children...

1901 census Oldham Above Town – Oldham
Mary Stansfield married age 28 b Oldham a Lodger with children William age 6 b Bury and Miriam S Stansfield 4 months b Oldham at Emanuel Simpson’s place

Thanks Val.

As well as Sophia I can't find a death for son John.

Also puzzled by Simpson. We have Steele and Sullivan as far as I can see.

Where is Mary Lynn in 1881? I wonder if born Lancs is an error in 1891.

This does not fit.

Just a thought… and a complete new ball game...

1901 Census has Mary Stansfield a lodger age 28 b Oldham – married at Emanuel Simpson’s home who is also married age 40 b Bardsley Lancs a cotton weaver and William S Stansfield age 6 b Bury as Lodger’s child and Miriam S Stanfield 4 months b Bury also a lodger’s child.

Could Mary have had the 2 children and possibly Mary to this Emanuel Simpson…

1911 census for South Kirby Yorkshire West Riding has:

Emanuel Simpson 52 Widow married 7 years had 4 children..a miner Hewer at Coal mine b Bardsley

Mary Simpson wife 34 b Halifax and line through her all her details..could she have just died ?

William Simpson son 17 b Bury Lancs a Pony driver coal mine

Miriam Simpson daug 11 b Oldham at school

Alice Simpson daug 6 b Oldham – birth reg is Alice Simpson Stansfield

Clara Simpson daug 4 b same – birth reg is as Clara Simpson Sept qtr 1907 Oldham

and some boarders whose wife looks like being in charge of house for Emanuel..
William Lewis 25 a boarder miner with wife Mary Elizabeth Lewis and son Norman Lewis 3
census papers signed by Mary Elizabeth Lewis at 8 King Street South Kirby.

Emanuel Simpson married Mary Stansfield Dec qtr 1906 Oldham Vol 8d page 1145

So going back to William & Miriam's births/baptisms, looks like Thomas had gone after 1891 and Mary could have been at Emanuel's home for a while as she registered her 4 children with Simpson as middle name before she married in 1906 and if the lodger's wife did the details for Mary's death with her Yorkshire accent could have taken Lynn for Glynn.

Thanks Val.

That explains the Simpson middle name.

Not sure that someone other than Mary would have registered the birth so Glynn could just be an error.

Thomas didn't enlist until 1897 and we have William born 1895.

Wonder how they chose 1906 to marry?
