No 6 Wesleyan Methodist Chapel Macquarie Street Parramatta
17th September 1856
William Channell Widower 8 3 North Petherton Somerset England Farmer 46 Camden Camden Thomas Channell & Elizabeth (maiden name Therkles ?[I can't read it - may not start with T]) Farmer
Naomi Oliver Widow 6 1 Uddermore Sussex England - 44 Camden Camden Richard Freeman & - (maiden name Bates) Labourer
By me Thomas Adams
Both x mark
Witnesses: William Stimson, Harriet Oliver

Witness Harriet is Naomi's daughter. Harriet married one month later.

So we have:

William CHANNELL b. abt 1810 North Petherton Somerset

A widower - 8 children, 3 deceased - parents Thomas CHANNELL & Elizabeth ??

Naomi FREEMAN b. abt 1812 Udimore, Sussex

A widow - 6 children, 1 deceased - parents Richard FREEMAN & Maria BATES

I can't find either baptism or either marriage of parents.

I can't find a marriage for William that stands out in England or Australia. I can't see a death for his spouse 1840 -1856 in NSW. So, did he come to Australia after his spouse died in England?
