Augustus born 1832 Isle of Man and his sister Caroline born 1829 both came to N.Z. Caroline married Francis Severne and settled in the Nelson area, Augustus married Eliza Ridge and lived Wellington, but Augustus eventually moved to Parramatta, Sydney, Australia about the 1870's, leaving his wife and kids in Wellington, N.Z. Augustus died in Sydney and is buried at the Rookwood Cemetery.
Augustus and Eliza's 2nd son, Foster Goring Yelverton was supposedly next in line for the Viscount Avonmore title, but never claimed it. I too would like to find the connection with the West Australians, however I think they are totally unrelated.
I have a heap more on this family if you are interested.
Hope this helps, Regards, Deb. [I am in Wellington, N.Z.]
