The Brisbane Courier Wed 21 Oct 1931 - Mr. J. C. Whittle,
The death at Gatton on October 16 of Mr. John Cady Whittle removed one of the oldest pioneers, of the Lockyer. Bom at Portland, Dorsetshire, England, just over 90 years ago, he came to Australia in the sailing ship Anna Maria, at the age of 18 years. After working in New South Wales for a number of years he came to Queensland, and ultimately to Gatton in 1875, when the township consisted of only a few buildings. From 1877 he carried on the business of a blacksmith, retiring in 1888. Mrs. Whittle predeceased him nearly 30 years ago. The late Mr. Whittle is survived by two sons, Messrs. Edward Whittle (Gatton) and William Whittle (Forest Hill), and a daughter, Mrs. A. Murry (Gatton).

Thanks Val.

I didn't have two of those obits.

It's the right marriage. Strange how the branch of the Loiterton family that moved to Queensland used a different spelling of the name.

John Smith is a problem.

Thanks Val.

I had not yet traced the children. Now I know where Mepham fits in.

Interesting middle name Keysel.

Dave
 
Think it must, Val.

Whittle side - Miller, Cady, Marwood, Pearce, Styles

Keysel most common in Shropshire and Lancs.

I'll have a look tomorrow.

Dave
 
Lots of possible variations of Keysel.

Don't know how we will find if it is on Smith or Davis side.
