Register: Marriages 1822 from the Bishops Transcripts, Page 30, Entry 547

Other records have date as 17.

There is some confusion re age at death in NSW for Eliza and confusion re her maiden name and her parents.

Yes, there is a baptism in NSW with matching parents.

I do not agree with that tree.

I can't find the marriage of James Pearson to Eliza Bourne.

I believe the death in that tree is the James who married Eliza Doody.

I'm not sure if this is Eliza nee Bourne or Eliza nee Doody.

It's a doody.

1859
THE PERSON who POSTED a LETTER at CAMDEN
the night of the 26th instant, and threw a larger
amount of money into the letter-box than was required for
the prepayment, can have it returned by describing the
amount and paying the cost of this advertisement. ELIZA
PEARSON, Post Office, Camden 27th May.

James and Eliza married by Licence. The licence states that Eliza was aged 21 years and upwards at the time of the marriage in 1822. There is a baptism in Liverpool 25 February 1798 for an Eliza Doody father Roger.

I can't find anything for a Roger Doody apart from a burial in Toxteth 6 August 1832 aged 78 (yob c1754).

Thanks emeltee.

After spending most of the day on this I still don't know if we have 2x James & Eliza or 1x James and 2x Eliza or how Eliza Bourne fits in.

Thanks Val.

I can't see a connection to Pearson. Perhaps John was appointed because he was a clerk of the court, as was James.

If ACI is correct then an Eliza Bourne was born on 24 Oct 1805 at Liverpool, Lancashire, England, the daughter of Richard Thomas & Martha.

The only record found on Lancs OPC and it does not fit.

Marriage: 7 Jan 1800 St Nicholas, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Richard Bourne - Potter, Liverpool
Ann Elston - Spinster, Liverpool
Witness: Edward Coventry; Esther Evester, (X)
Married by Banns by: Ls. Pughe, Curate
Register: Marriages 1799 - 1801, Page 50, Entry 6
