Frederick George Hannaford`s family emigrated to Australia in 1910 on the Aberdeen Lines Ship Moravian on an
unassisted passage.
The Aberdeen Lines Moravian was advertised in The Times(28/02/1910) as Departing London on the 15/03/1910 for Australia, calling at Plymouth,Teneriffe and Cape Town.
16/03/1910 The Times reported that the day before The Moravian had left Gravesend for Australia.
27/04/1910 The Times reported it had arrived the previous day at Melbourne on route for Brisbane
The family settled in Balmain Sidney NSW.and then Hunters hill Sidney NSW
Checking through my Grandmas`s address book ( Marion Doris Pidgeon ), I came across the name Aitkenhead c/o Mrs Hannaford on checking the historical NSW marriage certificate site ,I found a Robert Aitkenhead b.1902 d.1992 married Ivy May.Hannaford in 1929 b.1908 Bermondsey London d. 2002 NSW Australia. These were the Australian relations I met after he retired and took a world trip in the mid to late 1960`s It was a hot sunny day at my Grandmas house in Leatherhead, Surrey.
We played with my Corgi 007 cars which he enjoyed, He had two girls . When he went home he sent me a
Boomerang and some books on Australia.
I am now thanks to this web page in touch with descendents of this family .
