Hi Bill

I have had a look at 2 resources that should probably have shown him, neither did though:

Cable Clerical Index of clergy who served in the Anglican Church of  Australia from 26 January 1788 through to those ordained or serving by 31 December 1961.  http://anglicanhistory.org/aus/cci/

Crockfords clerical directory.  https://www.crockford.org.uk/

I also looked in the Australian newspapers http://trove.nla.gov.au but could not find.

I also looked in the London Gazette without success https://www.thegazette.co.uk/ even though they have a section on church notices etc.

I'm almost out of ideas......let me think on this a while and see what I can find
