WARBURTON—EATON.—On the 1st January, by the Rev.
James Love, Mr. Edmund Warburton, Leichhardt-
street, Spring Hill, to Mary Eaton, Kingstown, County
Dublin, Ireland.

Edmund Warburton
Marriage date:01/01/1867
Spouse's name:Mary Eaton
Registration details:1867/B/1980
Death for Mary ? No father = Eaton so that might be a married name.

Kingsbury or Burton or Allen ??

I called it complete too soon.

If Mary was a widow then there is no death in Qld. index just before 1867 for her first husband.

Or Mary remarried after Edmund died. No marriage in the index.

Thanks gibbo.

No mention of second wife in death notice in 1900 but no death before that seems to fit.

Several deaths after 1900 but I can't prove which one is right.

Still trying to find if Mary Eaton was a widow or not.

No assisted arrival for a Mary Eaton.

No marriages in Qld. index up to 1867 for a Mary Kingsbury, Mary Burton or Mary Allen = 3x father's name in three deaths.

The connection is son William born in England in 1852 so second wife is not that important.
