Possible 1861, a few errors, not sure where rest of family is yet..

Civil Parish: Leamington
Town: Leamington
County: Warwickshire
RD: Warwick
Sub-RD: Leamington
ED: 3; Piece: 2220; Folio: 65; Page: 31

John George Cruess 34 [b. Maidstone, Warwickshire. Railway Clerk] Image says Maidstone, Kent.
Arthur Cruess 8 [b. Stlburin, Middlesex]

Assuming this is the correct family, they are all back together in 1871 in Wednesbury, Piece: 2990; Folio: 48; Page: 12

Off a sourced tree Selina b 1857 married John Parkes 11 March 1878 in West Bromich and they arrived 28 July 1878 on ship "Samuel Plimsoll" NSW Assisted Passengers.

Did Sarah remarry?

I can't see a death in 1929 that fits. She would be around 98.

CRUWYS Sarah Funeral notice 24JUL1902 Funeral late of Darlington Sydney Morning Herald 24JUL1902

This is curious. It mentions Colin and Ralph and Arthur but maiden name is BUCKLEY not HARRIS. ???

Oh, that Sarah must be the spouse of one of the other brothers John or Ernest.

Ok, wife of John.
