I may be able to help you.
I also have Rebecca De Fraine (nee Curren) marrying a Stephen Thomas Jenkins in Aylesbury on 23rd May, 1830.
This info came from my (or maybe our) 6th cousin, John De Fraine, who lives near Lincoln in England. He says he has seen the Parish records.
Thanks Dave. I do have most of that info - just need to get time to sort through my work.

My great great grandfather was William De Fraine who was born at Aylesbury in 1827. His parents were Thomas De Frain and Rebecca Curren. Thomas died in 1829. He had 2 brothers, Thomas (1823) and George (1824). Somewhere before 1858 he came to Australia. He married Miriam Prater in 1858 in Aus...
The William De Fraine, son of Thomas and Rebecca, was born 1827 in Aylesbury. He is my 2x great great grandfather. He came to Australia and married Miriam Prater in 1858. I can't find when or how he came to Australia, or find him on the 1841 census. Can anyone help?
Hi I'm a new member. I have been researching my families for about 20 years. I live in Australia. I meet brick walls trying to find my English, Irish and Sottish heritage. I hope this forum will help. Looking forward to being part of the forum
