Thanks Amanda.

John Butt & Jane Durnford
1800 Winterborne-Stickland, Dorset
Batch: M160191

Interesting minor find, on John and Jane's original marriage copy she is Jean Durnford.
If the marriage can be found I'd like the date thanks.

Stephen Butt c. 5 Sep 1814 Winterborne-Stickland, Dorset
John Butt & Jane
Batch: C028549

Stephen arrived in NSW in 1837 so he's not in the census. If this is the right death then his mother should be Jane:

5161/1904 BUTT STEPHEN - JOHN - ELIZA - CROOKWELL

George should be a brother but his death reg does not help:

4441/1875 BUTT GEORGE AGE 72 YEARS DIED ALBURY ALBURY

George should also be in 1841 census:

NSW 1841 census Index:
Butt Stephen, Camden Village, County Camden, District Picton.


Looks like George married a Charlotte but don't yet have the marriage.

Death 4362/1875 BUTT CHARLOTTE - JOHN - ANNE - ALBURY

Thanks Geoff.

It's an extracted 'M' batch record so should have had the full date.


George probably arrived with Stephen but still looking for George's marriage.

Got that thanks. It's the baptism.

Can't find anything in TROVE for the marriage. All I can say is that it's not CofE. Probably Wesleyan which will be hard to find on the other set of films which has no index.
