A passenger list for the Homeric, sailing from Southampton, England, on May 31, 1922, shows Emily Louisa Estlick, age 25, knitter machinist, last residence Newquay, England, traveling with Alvina Jane Estlick, age 23, woollen knitter, also last residence Newquay, England. They are destined to the residence of their brother William Estlick, 18 Gordon Ave., Shelton, Conn. Emily shows her mother as Mrs. Estlick, Newquay, England, and Alvina shows her mother as St. Dennis, St. Austall, Cornwall. This appears confusing, however since they are both destined to their 'brother' they are likely referring to the same mother regardless of the confusion over her address. Also, the 1901 census in Cornwall shows Emily L. and Alvina J. under one roof.

The 1901 shows their name as Eastlake. Since earlier and later records show the family name as Estlick, this will be correct.

Emily's date of birth is taken from her death registration in Flint.

It should be noted that Emily's death registration places her birth in England; the 1930 census in Highland Park, Michigan, places her birth in England. Cornwall is presently a county of England, however there are Cornish people who have been born and raised in Cornwall and who have never traveled and who claim they've never been to England. This tree treats the family's place of birth as Cornwall.

At the time of the 1901 census, the Estlick family is indeed in the Truro Rural District. The actual town name was Perranzabuloe. The 1901 census shows that this was Emily's place of birth.

It appears that Emily's father, William Estlick, was a miner. In the 1901 census, a glance at the places of birth of the children shows that the family did some travelling. It appears that not long after William and Alfina were married, they went to the United States and were in Iron Mountain, Menominee County, Michigan, when their first child Millicent was born. The 1901 census in Cornwall shows Millicent as being born in America. By the time daughter Elizabeth was born two years later, the family was back in Perranzabuloe for this is given as Elizabeth's place of birth.
