John William Delley on Quetta 1884

John William Delley on Quetta 1884

I thought my gr grandfather and his brother emigrated from England to Keppel Bay Queensland on the Quetta arriving on 22 Sep 1884. So far I have only been able to find Louis Delley on any passenger lists. Can any one help me find the records for my gr grandfather John William Delley, b 5 Sep 1861, Skirlaugh, York. I am only going on notes left by my late mother. If she was incorrect where would I start to look for the records.
Thanks

I can only find Louis Delley's arrival listed, may be a look at the film, to see if he has been omitted.

Have you got much info on the family in England before they came out? Did you know John was in 1881 uk census but last name spelt Delly? Can see he also had a brother George, who named a son louis.

Thanks Wendy,
I beleive I do have all the information I can get on John William while he was in England. The surname has changed over time from Dilly/Dilley/Delly/Delley. Its just his emigration that seems to be a mystery.
