I can’t seem to find any passenger information for John Thomas Rolph who was born in New Brunswick Canada to John Thompson Rolph, but then sailed to Australia and married in Queensland, had children, and died there.  Can anyway see the when, how ?  Thanks/

You could look for an emigration from Canada to England - perhaps under a different family name, as there was a John Rolph who was apprenticed 26 Aug 1873 to the Neville, in Henisworth, London.

It is also possible that other family name was Doucett -- living in Newcastle, Northumberland, New Brunswick -- as it appears his mother married a James Doucett (who was, according to the 1871 Canada census, both married and a widower).  Also in the 1871 census were Samuel J Doucett, aged 5 years; Elizabeth Doucett, aged 4 years; and William James Doucett, aged 2 years. 

Margaret - a widow - and John show on the 1861 census as living in Northesk, Northumberland, New Brunswick.

I haven't found any emigration - or immigration - records at all, thus far.

John Thompson Rolph. Check spelling. This is his Death Notice, 1935.
Thanks a bunch !  Thompson is the middle name, it seems, the son of John Thomas Rolph.  That middle name was treated poorly by census takers and clerics.  Cheers
That's alright. Just added death registration in Queensland.

Check with the Queensland records for shipping manifests/records.  Also there maybe history of him and how he got to Australia where he lived in Australia.   Lots of ships sailed. Good luck.
