Hi Again, Yes you could be right. However, I am keen to know more about Williams story. When he came out from England and was his address the same as John White Richardson's. I have often wondered why my great-grandfather bought his daughters all the way to Australia after the death of his wife and my grandmother's mother. I do know my grandmother was a triple certificate nurse in London and did not want to come to Australia. Her father said they all had to come or none of them would. So, in the end, she gave in and came with her dad and sisters. I have the travel record of their arrival here. William is three years older than John so perhaps he had already come to Australia and encouraged John White to come with his family. His wife my great-grandmother died of 'broken heart' so to speak as she lost two sons as infants and did not have a living male child. I thought my great-grandfather just may have wanted to start again in a new country with his daughters and leave the sadness and grief behind.
However, his choice of Australia may have been influenced by the fact his brother was already here. I have a deadline to meet at the moment so I need to turn my attention to other tasks. So I will get back to this matter in a couple of weeks. Thanks so much for your interest it is encouraging and helpful. Best wishes Maggie.
