RESIDENCES:
BEF 1905-AFT 1905: Toompine Polling Place, Maranoa Division,QLD AUS
BEF 1913-AFT 1919: Florence Street,Eulo, Maranoa,QLD AUS
BEF 1925-AFT 1950: Florence Street,Cunnamulla, Maranoa,QLD AUS

OCCUPATION:
1905 Domestic Duties in Toompine.Occupation Note: It is not possible from the online Electoral Roll to tell who else, if anyone, was in the same household but it is unlikley at the time of registration to have been a MARTY[E]R.

GENERAL NOTE:
There were very few MARTYR or MARTYER couples in Queensland before 1900. Ernest Henry MARTYR and Catherine nee CALLAGHAN appear to be likely parents for Alice as Ernest Henry died in Cunnamulla in 1895 and Alice named her son Ernest MARTYER. No birth record has been found for Alice in NSW or Queensland. It is, of course, possible that Alice was a widow of a MARTY[E]R but no marriage record has been found, or a record of a MARTY[E]R dying in Queensland shortly before 1906 when Ernest jnr was born. The birth records normally name both parents if they are married.
