Dear Robin,

Hi. Your distant relative should be on the 1891 and 1901 Census for England with his family. Goto RootsChat register as a new user, find their England board - Sussex childboard and post a Census lookup request.

Search the National Archives of Australia online as a Guest.

Dear Robin, Have you got a family tree online somewhere? If not, this is a good idea as you would not believe how many 4th, 5th etc. cousins you will get in contact with who are researching the same set of ancestors.

Try for example:- Geni.com (my favourite), Tribalpages.com, Genesreunited.com (site I first started with).

Where and how are you storing all your genealogy data? Think about downloading Personal Ancestral File from familysearch.org.

Best wishes
