Looking for Lappin of Seville Victoria

Looking for Frederick LAPPIN or could be WALLACE as he was born out of wedlock in 1888 in Melbourne Victoria his mother was Annie Lappin who married Thomas Wallace in 1890 in Fitzroy Victoria. There is a story in the family that Thomas threw him out of the family home when he was very young. One of Annies children remembers that he returned only once to the family home and was a well dressed well spoken young man he was met at the gate by his mother and had a conversation there and that was the last we know of him. It is suspected that he kept in touch with his mother by mail. We do not know whether he kept the LAPPIN surname or whether he was given the WALLACE surname as a little child or whether when he left home he changed his name altogether but there doesn't seem to be any trace of him. His mother was close to her sister Caroline Matthews who lived in Goulburn NSW so maybe he went to NSW and had contact with family there
