Looking for Henry Wharton b abt 1856

Query by BJAbbotts

Hi, My name is Barbara Abbotts (born DAVIS) and Thomas James Wharton b 1860 was my great grandfather. Thomas James Wharton was also known as Wynne (surname). He married Lily Bessie Maria Lathan and they had several children. One of these children was Thirza Emily Eleanor Wharton b 1895 who was my grandmother. Henry Wharton was the brother of Thomas James Wharton AKA Wynne. I seem to have hit a brick wall as I know he emigrated to Queensland, Australia about 15th December 1873. He wrote a letter to his mother on 6th Dec 1875 from Yatale Post, Albert R, Brisbane, Queensland. After that I can find nothing. Any help would me buch appreciated.
Kind Regards,

Hi there, This certainly seems to be "my Henry". What a lot of information you have about him! Are there any photos?
Are you part of this tree or just researching?
Many thanks for all your hard work.
Kind Regards,

Just research, there are quite a few Wharton's in and around the Canungra area in Brisbane QLD. Canungra is about 30kms inland from the Gold Coast not far from Mt Tamborine.

Information is available through ancestry.com.au, QLD BMD online and I think there is also a Historical Society in Canungra, you could also try Trove (online newspapers), State Library of QLD and also National Archives these may give you more information on Henry and his family, Google could be another option you just never know.

My paternal grandmother was named Emma Gannon (nee Wharton) and she is buried in the Upper Coomera cemetery near Canungra and while I have little knowledge of her ancestry I understand her father was a timber cutter and had a bullock team working in the Canungra area. Both Emma and her brother owned houses in Warmington Street, Paddington until their death.

I do understand that a nephew Brian Wharton who lives at The Gap in Brisbane has a fairly comprehensive family tree of the Wharton family and if they are willing I will pass on contact or other details
