I came to Australia in 1986 when I married an Aussie
I was naturalised less than 18 months later by special Govt dispensation, so hold 2
Brian Walter Boyd (born Wellington, N.Z. 30th June 1936)
I have a Great great uncle (an eldest son) who was sent out to Melbourne by his father, in
disgrace, for reasons unknown (remittance man - black sheep of the family) in the late
1800s. He had his own cabin, paid for in a luxury liner (shipping records agree), and he
disembarked at Melbourne, Australia, and told never to return to Europe!.
I am still researching him, think he died in his 80s, maybe at Sunbury, Vic. ( the full
name and year of birth co-incide - recorded in the local Victoria death files, and listed
as having "no known relatives").
Will forward details as coon as I can unlock old computer!.
