Gap between Elizabeth and Emily so Burton or Stratford may have been born 1846 or 1847.

No age at death found so far for Burton.

Marriage 349/1863 POWELL BURTON - RUDDLE MARY ANN - SYDNEY * 5 May 1863

Can't find a notice in Trove

I don't know if that is on the CofE Sydney set on A.... If it is it may have Burton's age.

Yes thanks Geoff.

A rare case where the # in church register matches the ref # from Registrar General used in the on-line index.

St. Philip is the oldest parish in Australia so looks like those records were indexed first and so the # match.

Baptism records very rarely say where born.

BIRTHS

Thanks Geoff.

Didn't have any record of him ending up in gaol. Lots of ref to him being fined for minor offences.

So Burton may be younger.
