hi all, sorry to hear all about the bad flooding in Queensland, watched in on tv and felt very sorry for everybody.ive no idea who we would have coped here in the UK. my great uncle THOMAS HEWITT born OLD SWAN WEST DERBY LIVERPOOL UK, 9 Jan 1858. Ive found a record of someone who fits that description arriving in SYDNEY on 19 Jun 1880, age 22 years,OCEANA out of Liverpool. Ive also found him in a directory for VICTORIA. date 1883, living in Chester St. He wasnt married when he left the UK but im hoping he married when he got to AUS.
Is there anyone who knows anything about this THOMAS or can give me some information as to his birthdate etc. His parents were JOSHUA and ELLEN HEWITT of WEST DERBY LIVERPOOL. any help, no matter what will be greatly appreciated
