Thanks for that information Gerry.

I did know that Theophilus lived Victoria when he arrived in Australia but wasn't sure where in Melbourne.

Norgrove J. T. is my John Thomas Norgrove, I wonder who Richard Norgrove is I don't have that name in any of my family, possible relative but maybe not. I'll have to dig further.

Do you know where I can find information on Hateley & Norgrove Metal Merchants? I know they had a patent on a metal strip to protect the carpet edges on stairs, it's listed on National Archives site, but nothing else.

regards Anastasia
