King family of Port Adelaide, South Australia

Query by VicSearcher

I am finding it very difficult to make progress with the King side of my family.

Thomas King, whose father was John King, married Emma Jane Goodwin at the Wesleyan Parsonage, Port Adelaide, South Australia on 3 May 1879. Thomas and Emma had five children (four of whom survived) - John, Alexander Thomas, William, Amelia Sarah Ann and Margaret Emma.

Emma Jane King died in June 1908, aged only 53. Thomas King continued to live "on the old Port Road" until he died in August 1946.

With no online search facility for South Australian BDM certificates and a general lack of detail on the certificates that I have been able to obtain, it has been extremely difficult to find out where Thomas King was born (and when), when he emigrated to Australia, whether he had any siblings, etc. His father's name being so common (John King) and with no information about where in the UK he lived, I have been stuck for some time on this branch of the family.

If anyone can help with any details at all, I would be very pleased to hear from them.
