I think I've found the death info of my gt. gt. grandfather in Melbourne, Australia, via But wonder if there are more detailed records available. Anything further would be really appreciated. (He left London for Melbourne in Feb. 1890, so died not long after arriving I would think.)

Hi Maddie
Yes, that's him. I have a fairly full picture of him until he gets to Australia.

Hi Chris... Oh dear, what a tale? Thanks so much for discovering this for me. It's much appreciated.

Chris Ho :)

Chris Ho :) Report 7 Dec 2012 16:19

Yes, a bit sad...

Chris :)


Lesley Report 7 Dec 2012 18:15

Chris.. he'd had an eventful life, with an incredible amount of tragedies, yet always seemed to march on.... so I am not at all surprised at the outcome, although so sad. Certainly a lesson here for us descendants. Thankfully all fairly grounded to date!
Thank you again for your very valuable help.

Thanks very much Chris. I had found the death details, but not the family notice. Will look now. (Sandell was indeed her maiden name, so must be her).

HI Lesley

One of the articles mentions he was coming to stay with a married sister here in Australia. Do you know who she was? If you let me know their parents names I can have a look for you :-)


Lesley Report 9 Dec 2012 09:53

Hi Cherilyn, many thanks for your reply and kind offer to look up. Her married sister was Minnie Jane Leveson-Gower. (married in the uk). Their uncle, Matthew Ladd left London for Port Phillip Bay in 1852 and I have quite a bit of info on his descendants. Edith Rose married Allan Vale Hills from Tasmania. Their mother was Matthew's sister Mary Jane (Ladd) Lindop (died 1868). Elizabeth Ladd was their stepmother. Thanks again. Lesley
