Thanks Geoff.

Yes there was an earlier marriage:

1st
254/1872 CHAPMAN ROBERT EDWARD - CHIPPINDALE ALICE C - SYDNEY
2546/1872 CHAPMAN ROBERT E - CHIPPINDALL ALICE C - MAITLAND

Death 6923/1879 CHAPMAN ALICE M - GEORGE J - CAROLINE - MORPETH

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 22 August 1872 p.1
DEATHS
On the 13th instant, at St. Mary's Parsonage, West Maitland, ALICE CLARA, the beloved wife of ROBERT EDWARD CHAPMAN, and youngest daughter of Mr. E. C. CHIPPINDALL, aged 19 years.


The birth reg confirms Bessie's maiden name was CLIFF. So any sign before 1878 that Bessie married BAKER?
