    Notes 
    • George appeared in the 1881 census at home with his parents.

      George (23) and his wife Phebe (20) arrived in Queensland, Australia on 7 November 1882 on the 'Compton'. They appear in the Queensland Archives index as MORLEY and this looks like the name which appears on the ship's passenger list.
