When did Robert Lawrence Rein Actually Arrive in Australia
I seem to have hit a brick wall with this one.
Robert Lawrence Rein was born in 1858, his head stone indicates Swansea in Wales, I have found a Laurence Jacob Rein born close to Swansea in that year. his father was a Jacob Rein and mother Elizabeth Ball. It may be just a coincidence but on his marriage certificate he states that his father is Robert Rein deceased And his name is Robert Lawrence, I am wondering if he changed "Jacob" to Robert to anglisize his name???. Note Both Jacob Rein and Elizabeth Ball died in Wales in 1864.
He was married in Parramatta NSW 28th Sept 1881 to Alice W Spouncer, that is the first record I have been able to locate in Australia.. He does not seem to appear on Shipping lists
