Thanks Geoff.

When I say 'Not CofE' I mean it's not (all of them are not there) in the CofE set on A...

I have nothing in my tree that gives any clue as to where Alfred was born.

Only clue. He has a sister Maud.

Don't know if Maud is in NSW.

If that is the right family why mention only sister Maud?

Also no mention of a middle name for Alfred in baptism or census records.

Arrived 1911 or 1912 ??

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 23 Nov 1912 p.20
BYE - MURTOUGH.-October 24, 1912, at the Church of Our Lady Immaculate, Manly, by Rev. T. Barry, assisted by the Rev. P. Sheehy, M. Sherin, and R M'Eligott, Alfred W., only son of the late Albert Willam Bye, of Victoria Park, London, to Elizabeth Margaret (Lily), youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James B. Murtough, of Yattendon, Manly. Home papers please copy.

Something is not quite right.

Father is Albert William Bye ? Death reg has William & Emma.

Why only mention sister Maud? What about sister Alice and brother William??
Deaths 1901 to 1911 for Emma and spouse ??

Emma is 48 in 1901. No death but where is she in 1911 then?

Deaths Mar Qtr 1903
Bye William 50 Hackney 1b 335

The only deaths 1901 - 1911

Deaths Dec Qtr 1901
Bye Emma 64 Paddington 1a 37

Deaths Dec Qtr 1908

No death for an Emma Bye in NSW or Vic. index.

Emma born about 1854 Shoreditch - I can't see a reg that fits that.

Only one for 1854

No Thorogood - Beal marriage on FreeBMD.

Is Thorogood the right mmn? If so then better try to trace Maud.
