I am now seeking help in finding out about my Great Parent's arrival in Australia.

We know that they were in Leicester, Leicestershire England for their marriage in 1876 and a son Walter was born there in 1877. A daughter Kate Elizabeth Snow was born in Wellington, South Africa in 1880 and a 2nd daughter Annie Clara Snow may also have been born there in 1882. All we know is that they were in Melbourne, Victoria in 1887 when other children were born.

They ended up living in South Australia.

All my searches have been unsuccessful.

Thanks Dianne

Hi Dianne,

If they didn't come out on an immigration scheme then often they aren't listed by name, just 'x number of passengers', or they will just be Mr and Mrs with childen not noted.

Have you had a look at the SNOWs who arrived on the 'Bombay' in 1886?  The manifests are on microfiche and often don't provide any more info than is on the index, but still worth a look. http://prov.vic.gov.au/index_search?searchid=23

Cheers,

Debra
