Debbie, On the SA bio index there is a listing for Alfred COLES b. 1839 Ham. England married to Emily
He was a carpenter and church of england religion
Arrived in 1865 on ship MAORI

I found a trove newspaper article for this voyage and it mentions and Alfred, Emily and Francis COLES on board

On ancestry there is a listing that states they had 15 children so some must be missing from the BDMs

As there is no death recorded in SA for this Francis nor a birth for another child of that name -I presume he is the same one who died in 1929 in NSW ?

one of the listings I saw said they had 5 children in SA but no idea if this is correct as only two showing up

Bit confusing with all these conflicting records
