a message I posted in answer to this topic prior to these 3 has disappeared -- why? Is it still just being processed. If it does not appear in 48h I will repost.

my first post which was deleted suggested ann McCoy and henry or Thomas rourke not baker. as names look similar
it also suggested looking at early directories. and that the bride was either b nsw or a migrant. and where to find those records yourself. I have no wish to do your history. if you look at nsw bdm index you might find the brides birth under Elizabeth rourke and her fathers name henry which might confirm the witness as henry rourke or rorke not baker. I will not correspound again.
