Alfred or William Stonehouse from Snainton UK

Query by jc61

I believe my gr Uncle emigrated to Sydney in 1912,
his Brother may also have gone in 1910.

There names are Alfred Stonehouse b 1890
William Stonehouse b 1887

Any info would be gratefully received, as I know absolutely nothing about them

Hi SilverVixen,

Thanks,and Yes they were all from Snainton, I have just found them there myself today....great minds....! :-)

Not sure that you can, but I think I may have given you the wrong information. I checked Passenger ships leaving UK 1890 - 1960 with surname Stonehouse for Australia. Only three Williams listed (I thought there were two). One is a male child aged 1 sailed 31 October 1911 on the ship ZEALANDIC. Then Mr W Stonehouse born 1888 aged 37 but the departure was 3 April 1925 the ship was the ORSOVA and finally the information I gave you. Mr W Stonehouse is also listed as a Farmer so it could be that he came back to England for a visit and returned to OZ the DOB is correct so who knows?

Oh dear, its just one brick wall after another. The only thing I do know for definate is that he / they sailed to Sydney. Its possible that he did come back, although Im not sure if he did or would?
Thanks anyway, you have given me a few ideas to look at, and I am trying to contact the Australian archives now.
