Letters to his brother Thomas in Australia show that he considered coming to Australia to live.  He was the only member of the family to stay behind in England when his brothers and sisters migrated. Was an actor and singer with the stage name G. N. Best. He was living with Frederick and Amelia in Southville, Wandsworth Rd, Lambeth in 1891.He may have married twice since letters written from Australia before 1857 congratulate him on his marriage.

Emily was known by the name Best but her father's first name was unknown to her since the space for it on her marriage certificate is left blank. 
She was possibly brought up by a relative of Frederick's mother?
She cannot be found in either the 1841 or 1851 census, under either name.

 

 

 

 

Emily died of ‘internal gout’.
