I can't find the marriage in England or NZ or NSW for David Bishell to Mary.


Births Sep Qtr 1849
BISHELL David Newark 15 341
Bishell David Newark 15 541

One or both of those has an error.

BISHELL, DAVID - DAWSON
GRO Reference: 1849 S Quarter in OF NEWARK UNION Volume 15 Page 541

BISHELL, MARY JANE - MARRIOTT
GRO Reference: 1874 S Quarter in THE NEWARK UNION Volume 07B Page 383

Not found in 1881 census so arrival in NZ probably 1874 - 1881.
