Immigration to Australia

I am trying to find out which ship and when Edmund Charles Merritt and wife
Maude Monica [also called Polly] came to Australia.

It would have to be after WW1 and before 1925.

Re: Immigration to Australia

Hi oz,

Sorry but i couldnt find them. In a bit of a blind spot with the years you are looking at.
The NSW archives passenger lists seem to only cover up to 1896 and the national archive passenger list from 1921 -1950.

The national archives passenger lists have a few Merritts on there with no first names so dont know if they are yours or not.

Maybe someone else might have more access than me for passenger lists and might be able to help with this one.
Have you got any other info that might help narrow things down a little?

Hi Steve

I noticed Edmund Charles & Maud Monica are indexed under MERRETT throughout 1930-1954 Electoral Roll.

This is the only Edmund Charles MERRETT I can find in 1913, so they arrived before 1913.

6900 Merrett Edmund Charles 121 Flinders-street painter
6901 Merrett Maud 121 Flinders-street domestic duties

This is the only Edmund & Maud MERRETT I can find arriving in Sydney.
