Looking for BYRON of New Zealand and Sydney
I was adopted and, although I have found my birth parents, both are now deceased and tracking family history is a real challenge.
My maternal grandfather was James William BYRON. He married Alice Mary DARRAGH on 28 July 1923 in Wellington NZ. His marriage certificate says he was born in Melbourne Australia but I have not found any birth record in either NZ or Australia.
The couple migrated to Sydney at an unknown time and lived in Bondi. Alice passed away in 1946 and James died in 1971 but there are no further clues about his identity on the death certificate.
I have only anecdotal information that Jim was a magician when he lived at Bondi and gave his "tools of trade" away to someone in Darlinghurst.
I would love to learn more about grandpa BYRON. Perhaps someone out there knows something......
