Looking for Angelo Henry Myers of Melbourne Australia

Journal by Lawsie

Okay, my family tree is getting frustrating. I know my great, great great Grandfather, Angelo Henry Myers emigrated from England before 1888. He married in Melbourne in 1888. All the information I have is that he was born in Liverpool in about 1862-64, but I can't find anything to substantiate this at all on Ancestry.com. The only Angelo I can find was a twin but the dates don't add up, and he went on to have a family all in England as far as I can determine.

Angelo married twice. His first wife applied for divorce. From his first marriage to Edith Rose Johnson, produced 2 children, Harold Henry, and Stella Rose. His second marriage, to Amy Griffiths, produced another son, Victor James Henry, who died at 20, I suspect from a motorbike accident, if what we are deducing is correct from something my grandfather said to my Dad.

So any help would be fantastic.

So a bit more research later, and some luck. I have discovered that Angelo was a consumate liar. Cheeky bugger. He was in actual fact born in 1851 in England. He emigrated out to Melbourne with his parents, Aaron Henry and Esther (Estella)Myers (nee Goodman) between 1852 and 1855. He also had several siblings born in Australia, Marion (who died at 6 years of age), Lorenzo, Baron, Francesca, Mozelle, Annie, Georgina.

Angelo married in 1888 about 2 months after the birth of his first son, Harold Henry. It appears that around this time he changed from Judaism to Church of England. His wife, Edith Rose Johnson was Church of England.

So if you can help me, it would be appreciated. There still seems to be precious little on this family beyond Aaron and Esther. Though I have touched on a the possibility that Aaron's father may be Michael Myers. This is totally unsubstantiated by me. I turned it up on Ancestry.com, but like I said, unsubstantiated.
