Thanks Ellie.

The four inner Sydney CofE parishes are not on the A... data set.

Being a volume (149) past 123 I can't look that up at local libraries. It is on a second set of films at the Mitchell Library in the city.
 
Thanks Ellie.

I got there once I knew her father was Patrick.

He married Jane Bacon. No date for the marriage is known but given his improved behaviour, it is not unreasonable to assume that they were married some time in 1835. This year has been used until further information is available. They had five children; Jane, Hannah, Edward, William H, and Charles J. His daughter, Jane was supposed to born in Launceston, Tasmania although there no record of her birth can be found. In fact, the 21st Regiment's muster sheets show that Patrick was at Port Arthur at the time of her birth The remaining children were born in Sydney.
