Charles Galbraith EDWARDS

Births Jun 1872
EDWARDS Charles Galbraith Edmonton 3a 201

Death reg has his parents as Charles & Jane.

I can't find any tree that helps me find that marriage. England or Victoria?

I was hoping he'd be found in 1891 before I posted to migration forum for his arrival. Well, that didn't work out for a short 1891 census topic. :D
 
Looks like the answer..

Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1950
Name: Jean Reid
Spouse Name: Charles Edmards
Marriage Place: Victoria
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Year: 1870
Registration number: 2033
 
This is probably a bit more useful..

[Jean Edwards wid. Witnesses: Burton Woodcock & Annie Sophie ? - Charles W Builder]


Annie Sophie could be Grayling, her mother was Sarah Ann Grayling.

b. 1798 Ayrshire... buit not validated yet..
 
I can't see a birth in Victoria for a Jean but there are lots of Jane REIDs. And 8 with father = James

I looked in 1871 to see if they were in England but FS seems to be down.

Any clue from the trees as to pob for Charles born abt 1845.

I presume this is the same one..

I'd say so although the details for Volume 28 only have this:

28 Reel 5008 No 1-end(3409) Bap 1844 Church of England

I can look that one up on film at the library.
 
Death 14857/1907 DOWNES CHARLES H - JOHN P - MARY J - NEWTOWN

The Sydney Morning Herald - Friday 8 November 1907 p.6
DEATHS
DOWNES.-November 7, Charles Henry, at Prince Alfred Hospital, in his 47th year (late of Eastwood).

I can't find a Funeral notice in TROVE.

I've checked Rookwood, Woronora, Macquarie Park and can't find a burial. I can't check Waverley on-line.

Possibly Rookwood Crematorium but those records are not on-line.
