1 Need advice please on Fri Jan 16, 2015 2:05 pm

John Francis Herridge was born 1873 in Brazil (British subject) his parents where Arthur and Sarah Herridge both born and married in Bristol. Arthur was a Mason. They married in 1871. Their second child Frederick was born in Bristol in 1875 (c).

Is there any way I can find out when or why they went to Brazil?

Any help would be appreciated

I can see the Brazil bit now on the 1881 census how odd.

There's a narrow enough window between them marrying and his birth to look for them on a passenger list perhaps.

Looking at Arthur through the census he is variously a bricklayer/foreman/mason/builder & contractor - possibly he was called upon to work on or oversee a building project in Brazil for a couple of years.

Most intriguing Cool

Can't find anything passenger list wise I'm afraid.
