Trying to find the date and details of which ship he travelled on. I did find details on Ancestry for a George Heron under the Immigrations & Travel section but do not have Worldwide membership so cannot access the info.

Well thats promising. I believe that George's older brother Henry worked as a Cooks Mate on a ship that went to Australia in 1856 when it arrived Henry disappeared, until his death was registered in 1901, I wondered as George married in Oz in 1863 if he had travelled with or about the same time as Henry.

if the tree on ancestry is corecct daughter May born on board ship
1867 28 May
On SS Sobraon
On ship according to Malcolm Smith, 11degree 15min South and 30degree 50min West
had a look for passenger lists but can't find anything.
It seems the ship may have been a fast clipper ship

Thank you Andy I knew that he arrived about 1856 and died in Victoria in 1901 and his occupation was a "Baker" but know nothing about what he was up to in between.
If he is the same Henry he is a bit of a naughty boy.... he left England in Sept 1856 had married in 1854 and his wife gave birth to a daughter in Oct 1856.

Thank you Chris, This Henry is also from Gloucestershire but not the one I have been researching, This Henry was from Chipping Camden I think and It appears that in the 1880's he owed about £45,000 and after that had some sort of breakdown and was committed to Gladesville Asylum in Sydney. I don't know exactly how long he spent there, but he appears in the Directories of Sydney from 1895 to 1912 when he died. He married into a very high powered family, his wife's father being Sir William Montagu MANNING who was a Judge and amongst other positions he held was that of Chancellor of Sydney University.
