Don, My Greatgrandfather George Edward Fortescue had five sons (the younger died as an infant) the second eldest Albert, who was said to be a successful inventor and the engineer behind ther Farm machinery factories in Old Tallangatta Vic. & Arncliffe N.S.W. had a son named George (didn't they all ) I am guessing butI suspect that this George probably had his fathers name as a second name, ie George Albert. envelope post marked 1951 would give an approximate age to my father, born early 1900 and either in N.S.W. or Vic.and would have died about 9 years ago. I met him once and he was very difficult about family history particularly as George Edward had married a Meurant who was decendant from two convicts. Ferdinand de Meurant (Australia's first Jeweller), and Owen Martin an Irish Convict. He would not accept that there were any convicts in the family and destroyed any records he could get his hands on.I hope that this maybe of some assistance.
