Birth CHAMBERS ISABELLA ELLEN 19119/1874 WILLIAM - ELLEN - SHOALHAVEN

Seems from the funeral notice that the children born in four different districts of NSW do fit and that the 1860 marriage in post #2 is correct.

From a tree:

Death CHAMBERS WILLIAM 7101/1914 WILLIAM - ELIZABETH - GOULBURN * 26 Apr

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW : 1883 - 1930) Tue 28 Apr 1914 Page 14
THE COUNTRY.
William Chambers, who arrived recently from
England, on a pleasure trip, died suddenly in
the Goulburn Hospital to-day.

Why is that the right one? All we know is that William died after 13 Jun 1909. There are four other deaths in NSW between those two dates.

Including this one.

CHAMBERS WILLIAM 7108/1913 WILLIAM - ELIZABETH - GRANVILLE * 24 Apr

The tree has the wrong death. 1913 is correct and not 1914.

The tree is correct in parts only.

Is the 1920 death in Newcastle with father as John the right one?

The tree is not much help. It shows two marriages for Francis but no parents for Florence A.

It shows two children born to Francis and Luck but there were four. The last two being twins boy & girl.
