Certainly and thank you so much

Frederick Cavill and family, wife Frances and about 9 children left England for Australia according to the notes I have in 1879, they arrived in Australia circa Feb 1879.
Frederick was born in August 1839 in Knightsbridge, Middlesex. He was a famous swimming professor at the time and had attempted to swim the English channel and there is some doubt as to whether he actually did complete the feat on either of the 2 occassions he attempted it. He also returned to England in 1888 to collect a legacy and returned to Australia aboard the SS Rimutaka later the same year. He set up a swimming school or "natatorium" in Lavender Bay.

Thank you for any help that you can give me
