8x deaths in NSW index for Hugh but not one in or near Nowra.

Martha may have remarried so may not be this death.

Presbyterian Marriages solemnized in the Parish of St. Andrew Sydney in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1845
No. 771
I, - do hereby declare that I am a Member of, or hold Communion with, the Church [signed] -
I, Hugh MacPherson do hereby declare that I am a Member of, or hold Communion with, the Presbyterian Church of Scotland [signed] H. MacPherson
I, The Revd. John McGarvie, of Sydney, Minister of St. Andrew's Church, do hereby certify that Hugh MacPherson, Bachelor, of Balmain and Martha Harkness, of Pyrmont Spinster, were joined together in Wedlock by me on the Twenty Sixth day of September 1845, at Sydney by Banns, in the presence of - William MacPherson and Isabella Harkness, witnesses of Sydney.
Parties signed: Hugh MacPherson, Isabella [sic] Harkness [signed] John McGarvie D.D.

An error with 'Isabella' as one of the parties. Also, Hugh signed the declaration as H. MacPherson.

Note: This is not a transcription of the Parish Register but a copy of the details the church sent to the Registrar General.
