Surnames: Horsburgh
I am trying to contact relatives or people who knew my long lost second cousin Craig Horsburgh who after a brief stay in Jamaica in the late 1950's emigrated to Australia and only made one trip back in the 1960's we think and died young about 1980.

He appears to have lived at Flat 2, 7 Gilbert Street, Fannie Bay, Ludmilla, Northern Territory, Austrlalia according to the electoral register for 1968 (he is described as a Watersider) and he is living with Nalda Florence Horburgh (a Store Assistant) which we presume is one of his wives. We think he married twice.

He may also have lived at 1/25 Ellis Street, Stones Corner, 4120 Buranda, Griffith, Queensland Australia (where he is described as a machine operator) and he is still living with Nalda who is a "H D - Home Duties" which I presume is housewife?

Deeess has been kind enough to point out I missed that Nalda Horsburgh appears to be living alone in the 1977 census in 39 Amherst Road, Midland 6056, Swan, Western Australia still "H D" , which might suggest she has other means of support and Craig may be working away or separated, or he may have died?

I can't find her on the 1980 census even with a different surname?

We would love to hear from anyone related to or who knew him, to learn more of his life in Australia and Jamaica and anywhere else.

His Parents were Edward Horsburgh and Edith Smith.
