hi Jean, thanks for getting back to me. Firtstly Im not sure he did come to Australia, I was told by a cousin that he went emigrated to USA but im not been able to confirm that, cant find ANY records at all in the USA, and ive had a good friend and others who have searched everywhere and every record without success, Ive also checked all the Canadian Records and still the same, absolutely nothing.Then one of those kind people told me about THOMAS HEWITT born 1858 arriving in SYDNEY on the ship OCEALA out of LIVERPOOL on 19 June 1880,age 22 which sounded good to me.They also sent me a bit more info from a sort of Street and trade directory for VICTORIA in which THOMAS HEWITT was living in Chester Street. Now I dont know if it was the same THOMAS that turned up on 19 June 1880, or not.Ive no idea if he moved to another state, BUT pardon my lack of knowledge on Aus, but is SYDNEY and VICTORIA different places? or is VICTORIA one of the States over there, i know that Sydney is a large city with the lovely Sydney Harbour Bridge. That about all I can offer.I was just hoping that some records somewhere, maybe naturalisation papers might just give ssome info about him and his family back home in England, I thought maybe there might be a marriage certificate somewhere in AUS that might show his parents names, and that would be sufficient for me.They were JOSHUA and ELLEN HEWITT. thats about all the information I have, hoping that it might be of help, apart from the fact that his grandfather, his father and all his uncles and brothers where all in the building industry, house builders, plumbers, etc, so that might be a clue.Forgot me mention that he came alone to Aus, all his family never moved out of England, that is if he is my THOMAS.
