William Meredith in Australia?

This request for information is to help further my knowledge about the Meredith and Cornish families living in Australia.

Some while ago I added a post about Ebenezer Eleazer Cornish. Plenty of information helped me find them. Now I would like to find William Meredith born 1851 in Breconshire, Wales. His parents were William and Mary Meredith.

I have recently noticed that he is on board the ship Northumberland in 1875 departing for Victoria. His name is among the other passengers namely, Ebenezer, Selina (sister) and niece Elizabeth.

Can someone help me please to find William Meredith and where he eventually settled in Australia? His occupation was builder/carpenter, if that helps.

Thank you.

Re: William Meredith in Australia?

On PROV Unassisted to Victoria.

Age 22 339 NOV - 1 B NORTHUMBERLAND 1875 MEREDITH, WILLIAM

Deaths in Vic. for 29x William with no matching parents.

3x with parents unknown but all three would have been aged over 100.

No death in NSW with those parents.

Either birth year is out and age on shipping record correct or age on shipping record is wrong ?? Are parents definitely William & Mary ??

Re: William Meredith in Australia?

Thank you both for looking for William. His parents names are correct and so is his date of birth. Possible although not certain he had a middle name of James, if that helps.

Re: William Meredith in Australia?

No death in Vic. index that fits.

Searched Trove for "william meredith"~0 AND carpenter in Victoria and no luck.

No record on PROV for an Outward journey from Vic. to another state of Australia.

If the arrival is the right one then a return to England??

Re: William Meredith in Australia?

Marriages in Vic. 1875 - 1885

A William Lambert Meredith in 1879.

Can't see a death in Vic. for that one.

No luck with combinations of Cornish AND Meredith.

Found the death notice for Mary Jane in 1908.

CORNISH Given namesSelina EventDeath Father's name / Spouse's family nameMeredith Wm Mother's maiden name / Spouse's given nameMary (Unknown) Reg. year1880 Reg. no3846

Cornish AND Meredith no hits in 1880.

Re: William Meredith in Australia?

Even though Meredith is a fairly popular name, there is nothing leaping out for William, not even in the directories

There doesn't appear to be a marriage or a death that fits.

A public tree has William Lambert Meredith b. 1848 Geelong and possibly d. 1902, neither validated.
