|Robert Russell Sewell born 21 April 1860 Stoke Newington Middlesex England born to Nathan Sewell and Elizabeth Sewell nee McGee.|
Robert Russell Sewell is reported as arriving in Sydney Australia on board the THERMOPYLAE (Unassisted passage) on Apr 6 1877 and until his death in 1947 or thereabouts lived in the Manly area New South Wales Australia.
Further digging has led to a newspaper report from some time in 1876 reporting a Mr. Sewell of Manly N.S.W. Australia being taken on as a apprentice aboard the THERMOPYLAE. The question is, are the two Sewells the one and same.
Thanks for making time to read this post i have not had much success with shipping notices or passenger lists or the like.
