Thanks Val.

Very curious. I actually don't have Frederick Wm in my tree. But he is not the eldest ??

Vic. Death 8856/1940 NIQUET Chas Wesley 89 John Peter Unk NOBLE d. Middle Park, Vic.

I must explain the old Qld. BP and BBP records. They are church baptisms and all were given the year 1854 in the index although the true year could be anything up to 1859.

They have been removed from the index so no search can now be done.

The eldest son.

If Frederick is the eldest then there is no baptism record in NSW or Qld. index.

Age at death ?
