View Full Version : George Kendrick PERKINS and Family (Tasmania to Sydney) 1890 - 1907

Help needed to try and find any records regarding George Kendrick Perkins, his wife Mary Jane Charlotte Barrett and their 2 children, Margaret Elsie May Perkins born 1890 and son Kendrick Henry Perkins born 1888, moving to Sydney from Tasmania.
I am guessing they probably moved between 1900-1906 as we have records of them in Sydney in 1906.

You can search the BDM records online
A birth of a Lurlene in 1904 to parents George E and Mary J could be your family, despite the wrong middle initial.

Thanks ChritineR for showing me that birth.
I don't think it is one of ours as this child isn't mentioned in any documentation we have (George Kendrick Perkins and Mary Jane Charlotte Perkins death certificates) on this family plus I've never heard of that name in our family at all.
I've spoken with the Tasmanian archives and there are no records at there end and have suggested to try and find some at the Sydney end. This is because at the time like now no longer requires Govt. records of the passengers going from Tasmania to Sydney.
Therefore I need to try and find any govt (which there probably aren't any) and non-govt. passenger lists for ships in to Sydney during this time period, if any exist.

Does anyone know where I can find any shiping lists for the period 1890-1907 arriving in Sydney (preferably from Tasmania)?
