Note to self: Search under The Immigration Historical Resource Kit. The “Z” microfilm numbers refer to the films held at the Queensland State Archives. The “M” microfilm numbers refer to the films in the Historical Resource Kit – Immigration which is located in collections around Australia.  Which includes the State Library of Queensland and the University of Queensland Library.

According to the Queensland vital records, Simon Peter JENSEN married Ann Marie BERTELSEN in 1888. And a brith search on the New South Wales Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages website came up with a John JENSON born to Simon P JENSEN and Ann Marie born 1891.

There are no listings for a Simon Peter or Simon JENSEN in the Index.

There is however, a listing for:

NAME                                 Age           Ship                 Date

JENSEN Soren Peter      20            Gutenberg         24 Mar 1871

Could that be another name change to Simon Peter?

I searched the 1844-1896 Indexes: assisted immigrants to NSW on the State Records of NSW website but there was no listings for the surname JENSEN.

I then searched the Index to Unassisted Inward Passenger Lists to Victoria 1852-1923 on the Public Office Victoria website.

Family Name First Name    Age Month  Year Ship

JENSEN                SIMON                 20        JUN     1883      PROCIDA

Other JENSEN’s on the PROCIDA:

Family Name First Name    Age Month Year Ship

JENSEN              GEORGES M      23        JUN     1883     PROCIDA

There are no online indexes I can find for South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia.

Before I do any more searches…I have to confirm first if John JENSEN (Simon Peter JENSON’s son) is John STEWART – and how to do I do that…I have no idea!
