Thanks Mel
His birthdate is approx 1884 sometimes 1883 and he was born in Fulham London. I am sure he would have departed perth or rather the port of fremantle to return to England

Hi Colin

What other details do you have on Walter Levi Walden?

Do you know if he married and her name? children etc?

I have world Ancestry and access to the Aus electoral roll for the right timeframe, but need more to pin him down.

Sorry Tracey - I was looking at the baptism that you posted - the one that was the father and aunt of the Walter being looked for.

I have caught up now - I think! The Walter in the 1881 census with father George (the Basketmaker) had a son George P. in 1886 who was the brother of the Walter that went off to Australia. Is this correct please?

Colin

Colin Report 22 Nov 2009 13:44

Tracey I feel great you have given me 3 addresses I didn't have The other information you gave is accurate.The witness George is his uncle and Louisa is his aunt.
I have only been able to find a boarding list with Sarah and a male infant, her son who did not survive the trip. There was no reference to a husband or walter l walden by name. It might be an oversight or he may have trvelled at a different.time. Thats the information I am trying to find.
Thanks again for your great efforts..............colin

Walter Levi the elder's father was George P Walden and mother was EDITH.

Sister was Georgina....

As far as i'm aware George P & Edith only had Walter and Georgina.

So i think the top census is correct....

Colin hasn't indicated they had more children than that?
