Hello GB,

William is not with the rest of the family and I can't see his death in Queensland.

JAMES Charles 23 'Glamis' 7 Feb 1877 IMM/115 1295 Z1959 M1698

Hello Julie,

Thanks. Yes, 1903-1925.

Hmmm... I know why I didn't find his death last time I looked. To reduce the number of William JAMES from 5 pages of hits I entered his father as Thomas but no parents listed. Curious as he had five siblings living in Queensland.

Death 1927/B0664 William Vaughan James - -

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Saturday 9 April 1927 p.16
JAMES.-On 22nd March, at Brisbane Hospital, William Vaughan, beloved husband of Agnes James, aged 76 years.

If you remove those with a middle initial not V then you are left with 26 William JAMES on the shipping records to Queensland. However there is only one before 1871 so this could be the one:

JAMES William 20 Flying Cloud 30 Aug 1870 IMM/114 36 Z1958 M1697

No Ann/Anne/Annie on the same vessel.

If the marriage was on 1st July and James arrived on 30 August I suppose it is possible. ???

EDIT: I wonder if we have two William Vaughan JAMES and the one in my tree didn't marry in 1870.

The one in the Qld. E/R would be the son of William Vaughan (well at least some if not all the entries):

No sign of a notice in the newspapers.
