Another go at this one:

Joseph Lear Widower Kingswood Hill Gloucester England Inspector of ? 60 Goulburn Aaron Lear Ann Hodges Storekeeper
Alice Maud Palmer Spinster Place of birth: Taunton Somersetshire England - Age: 32 Usual residence: Goulburn Father: James Palmer Mother: - Father's occupation: -
married in the usual place of Worship Tirranna nr. Goulburn
December 19th 1885 By me Alfred T. Puddicombe
Both signed
Witnesses: Samuel Manse ?, Emily Jerviss ?

No death found yet in Australia for Alice so no mother's name from death reg. Not this one:


LUTTON Alice May Funeral notice 25JUN1906 Funeral late of Camperdown SMH 25JUN1906

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 25 June 1906 p.12
LUTTON.-The Friends of Mr. EDWARD LUTTON are kindly invited to attend the Funeral of his late beloved DAUGHTER, Alice May, to leave his residence, 88 St. Mary-street, Campberdown, THIS (Monday) AFTERNOON, at 1.45, for Wesleyan Cemetery, Rookwood.
F. W. HARTLEY, Undertaker, 208 King-street, Newtown and R'way Parade, Kog.

No occupation listed for her father James on the marriage record.

I can't find a birth reg that fits the pob and age listed for Alice M.

Not yet found in shipping records.

I'd like a look up for Alice and James in 1861 please assuming Somerset.

If we assume a death for James in Taunton RD then there is no death before 1863 and several 1863 - 1871.

Looking at marriages in Taunton RD before 1853 then:

Marriages Sep 1839
BENNETTS James Taunton 10 588
BESS Ann Taunton 10 588
BOWDEN Mary Hannah Taunton 10 588
CULLIN Nicholas Taunton 10 588
PALMER James Taunton 10 588
Stephens William Taunton 10 588
Tolhan Elizabeth Taunton 10 588
Trout Mary Ann Taunton 10 588
