Anders Ostman born 1852 Finland

My husband’s great grandfather was an Anders Ostman born about 1852 in Finland, and his brother John Ostman born about 1854? They both came out to Australia about 1870-1884,

I have lots of information on their lives here in Australia – Anders Ostman 1852-1934 and John Ostman 1854-1899.

They both stated that their father was Anders Gustave Ostman a shipbuilder in Finland.

I have just recently found a page on the KirjastoVirma website, where a Helge Ostman listed a biography of Anders Ostman (1819-1900) renowned ship builder and builder.

Go to

The article says that this Anders had 10 children and they followed their father in shipbuilding. I strongly feel that our family here in Australia must descend from this man in Kalajoki.

So, I would like someone who can make a link between Anders Ostman 1819-1900 and my family’s Anders Ostman 1852-1934 here in Australia. Or if not disprove any link?
