The family story has it that Ernest George changed his name to George Searl. No record of deed poll. However Searl married in 1902 to Annie O'Driscoll/Mc namara. His parents listed as George Searle and Mary Jacobs. I wonder what happened to Amy Beavis. It's seems a coincidence that George Searl and Ernest George Beavis were both born at Rosewood Qld in the same year. George Searl has no birthrecord only age on the marriage certificate. I am thankful for any light that can be shed on this puzzle.
