Letter: Help trace the Renshaws

I AM wondering if anyone is researching my family history.

My great-grandfather Ernest Renshaw arrived in Sydney on the ship the Oriziba in 1895 with his wife Rhoda, née Millington.

They had three sons Ernest, Lawrence and Leonard. They lived in Rotherham along with a large family in and around the area of Tankersley. The limited information I have is that they left their parents and siblings behind and never returned.

His brothers were Benjamin, Albert, Leonard, Lawrence, sisters Harriet, Georgina and Lily. Also his mother Eliza, father Samuel. They lived in Elsecar. If anyone has any information or are descendants of this family I would love to hear from you.

My contact details are available from the Rotherham Advertiser
