Robert Russell Sewell born 21 April 1860 Stoke Newington Middlesex England born to Nathan Sewell and Elizabeth Sewell nee McGee.

Robert Russell Sewell is reported as arriving in Sydney Australia on board the THERMOPYLAE (Unassisted passage) on Apr 6 1877 and until his death in 1947 or thereabouts lived in the Manly area New South Wales Australia.

Further digging has led to a newspaper report from some time in 1876 reporting a Mr. Sewell of Manly N.S.W. Australia being taken on as a apprentice aboard the THERMOPYLAE. The question is, are the two Sewells the one and same.

Thanks for making time to read this post i have not had much success with shipping notices or passenger lists or the like.
