No obvious certificate available so can't validate :rolleyes:

RC Bap O'BRIEN BRIDGET 493/1848 V1848493 67 WILLIAM - HANORIA
William O'Brien & Hanoria Queney

Abode: New England

Far enough away to rule that family out.

That's the only Bridget 1839 - 1855 in NSW index with father = William.

If you are having prob's locating it let me know..

Geoff
I just spent the last 10 minutes trying to find it. :biggrin:

Are you sure you have the right John? What month and year?

So we are back to two CofE Barnes brothers marrying RC sisters - one in CofE church and the other in RC Cathedral. ???

Thanks Geoff.

I will have to check why that did not return a hit.

This is very odd. Menindee is in the far west of NSW on the Darling River.

The CofE marriage took place a few months before the RC one. That's about the only bit that does not seem to fit.

The CofE marriages for that Diocese are on fiche at the State Library and one is there and the other not.

I'm still not spending $18. :D

Occupation for John junior.?
