Subject: [TSL] "Demosthenes" Austrlaia 1911?
Date: Sat, 17 Jul 2010 09:22:09 +1000
Good morning Listers,
I have a mystery I hope SKS can help me solve.
I am assisting a friend to research her mother's side of the family. She told me her grandparents Richard and Jessie HUDSON, immigrated Down Under with her mother Barbara Irene HUDSON early in 1900. Her mother was born on 15th May 1910 in Southport in Lancashire. I searched the immigration Website records and found thier arrival in Australia on the Queensland website on the Card Index to Personal Files for Nominated Immigrants, 1908-1922:-
Arrival in Brisbane:-
HUDSON Barbara Irene 9m 1911 "Demosthenes" Father HUDSON Richard
HUDSON Jessie 35 1911 "Demosthenes" HUDSON Richard
HUDSON Richard 28 1911 "Demosthenes" HUDSON Richard.
Is the year 1911, the year the "Demosthenes" sailed from England, or the year she arrived in Brisbane? No matter how many Googles I carry out, I cannot find an actual date of her arrival. I will explain my dilemma. Barbara Irene HUDSON was either 9 months old when she sailed on the "Demosthenes" from England with her parents, or 9 months old when she arrived. So the ship either sailed in February 1911 or arrived in Australia in February 1911, I can see the "Demosthenes" arrived maybe a couple of times Down Under in 1911, however I would like to find the actual voyage the HUDSON family was one. I do hope someone can help me. Thank you
