Given names
George Myers

It is interesting to note that George Myers Martin was actually registered at birth as George Myer Martin, but all future reference has always named him as George Myers Martin. Even Rosina put an "S" on the end in her bible record.

The story goes that when Rosina was pregnant with George Myer, there was a neighbour and friend of the Martins that were closely related to the Myer family (as in Coles Myer) and Rosina was asked to name her child after them. She was paid a sum of money for this privilege but I do not know how much that sum was for. I would think in those days it would have been quite generous.
