Thanks gibbo.

Reginald S. instead of Reginald F. but looks to be the right one.

COOK Reginald Fitton Death notice 14FEB1966 Death 75 late of Auburn SMH 15FEB1966

Has Auburn ? Perhaps moved from Plumpton.

Looks like they married in England and arrived abt 1887 ?

Not on Assisted list to NSW.

Marriages in Kent just before 1887.

??
Marriages Sep Qtr 1886
Clarke Jane Ann Elham 2a 1469
Cook Henry Elham 2a 1469

No Alice McEvoy born England abt 1855 so may not be the right marriage.

I can't find any Cook births on GRO just before 1887 with mmn Fitton or McEvoy.

I can't find any Williams births with mmn McEvoy so I can't match the couples in that 1886 marriage.

The obit say they arrived married.

No Alice Paul found in 1881.

I can't find a tree that helps.

I'm stuck. I can't find Alice in any census if father is William.

Margaret, Eade and Harry are Phillip and Mary Ann's kids
Mary Ann death notice ... late T Cook i think is a error for P Cook??

and Harry, aged 76 years.
