David Retallick emigrated to Australia aboard the Jumna which arrived at Townsville on 20 Jul 1891. He was 21 years of age and arrived with his brother Christopher and his family. David was a miner and I have found a few mentions of him on Trove living in the Charters Towers area. However, he died suddenly in 1914 as detailed in his death notice: DEATH. RETALLICK.—At the Duchess, on July 18th, 1914, after a few hours' illness, David Retallick, aged 45, dearly beloved brother of Mrs. Lean, of Mosman Park, also of Mrs. M. Cox and C. Retallick, one time of Millchester Road. Deeply Regretted. Family Notices (1914, July 25). The Northern Miner (Charters Towers, Qld. : 1874 - 1954), p. 4. Retrieved June 21, 2016, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article79195530 I gather that the Duchess was a gold and lead mine about 111 km from Charters Towers. Mosman Park is a suburb of Charters Towers and Millchester Road is also in Charters Towers. I believe that David was a bachelor; in 1909 he travelled back to England for a few months. I have tried to trace the siblings mentioned in the death notice and have found Mrs Lean easily enough but am having no luck with Mrs M. Cox and C. Retallick. I did find an M. Cox, storekeeper, Millchester Road signing a petition for the constitution of a municipality in Dec 1901, just below D. Retallick, miner, Wellington Flat. The C. Retallick will not be Christopher Retallick as he returned to England; his son, Harry was born at Millom, Cumberland in 1903; and the family was still living there in 1911. Mrs Lean was Eden Retallick who married James Lean in 1881 at Whitehaven, Cumberland. They travelled to Australia aboard Austral arriving at Sydney on 12 Jul 1897 with their five children: Mary, Eden, Millie, Grace and Herbert. James Lean died in early 1913 at Charters Towers. I have found two male Retallick siblings whose first name starts with C. Charles emigrated to the USA arriving at New York in 1904 and died in Meagher county, Montana in 1929. And then there is Conivan who I can only find on the 1881 Census living at Arlecdon, Whitehaven, Cumberland with his family. At least Conivan is how his name has been transcribed, the writing is some of the worst I have seen and so while I can see how they made Conivan out of the writing it could well be something quite different. (I am sorry I have not been able to copy the image from Ancestry). There are three female Retallick siblings apart from Eden: Miriam, Millicent and Bessie but they all appear to be otherwise accounted for. Miriam married a William Henry Jones and died in Washington (state), USA in 1932; Millicent married a William Henry Roberts and died at Brixham, Devon in 1892; and Bessie married Francis John Gordon Hockaday at Bootle, Cumberland in 1879 and died in 1925 at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. So who can find Mrs M. Cox and C. Retallick and how exactly do they fit into this family?? Oh and I found a Wanted advertisement placed by someone named Retallick: WANTED Situation as HOUSEKEEPER, with one child. Apply Retallick, Millchester Road. Advertising (1895, August 30).

As always any help will be much appreciated.
