I am researching a William Rothwell OLIVER born about 1829 in Liverpool.
When he arrived into South Australia 1862-1865 he set up business as a
timber merchant (Steam Moulding Mills), he then moved to Melbourne Victoria
about 1886-1888, where he carved the pulpit at the St. Patricks Catholic
Church. It is likely that when he left England his occupation would have
been listed as carpenter. His religion was Catholic. South Aust. marriage
certificates only list the father's name which was given as John OLIVER.
