Biography

George and his brother John migrated to Queensland, Australia.

It appears that George married Emily Kate Russell and had one son George Alfred Merrit [Merrett]. From 1903 to 1927, George is living with his brother John and his family.

On Trove there is a Newspaper Article saying that Emily Kate Merritt was of an unsound mind and was to receive medical treatment which might have explained why they weren’t together if his wife was in an asylum.
