Another look at this one.

NSW Births
6207/1859 PARKER AMELIA W - EDWARD - ELIZABETH - CAMDEN
6618/1862 PARKER MARY E - EDWARD - ELIZABETH - CAMDEN
6610/1867 PARKER ELIZA - EDWARD - ELIZABETH - BERRIMA


Mary married William BENSLEY 28 Jul 1897 at Bowral (2nd marriage for both of them)

Death 22473/1928 BENSLEY MARY E - EDWARD - ELIZABETH - CROOKWELL ** 28 Nov

No problems there for Mary. Marriage for sister Amelia:

NSW Marriage 4171/1883 TAMSETT ALBERT - PARKER AMELIA WATTS - BERRIMA


Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer (NSW : 1884 - 1901) - Saturday 17 March 1888 p.3
MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY.
Mr. H. Childs, J. P., held a magisterial inquiry on Friday afternoon, touching the death of Edward Titman Parker, who died at his residence, Bowral, suddenly that morning ... The evidence of Eliza Parker, deceased's daughter, and of Albert Tamsett, his son-in-law, ... James Parker, son of deceased, ...

James can be explained:

Marriages Dec 1848
PARKER Edward Titman Northampton 15 639
Watts Elizabeth Northampton 15 639

Births Jun 1854
PARKER James Watts Northampton 3b 78

Glen Isla 1857 Sydney and/or Newcastle and family Reel 2138, [4/4794]; Reel 2475, [4/4968]
PARKER Edward 33
PARKER Elizabeth 32
PARKER Hannah 28
PARKER James 2


===
Now the tricky bit.

NSW Birth 9455/1876 BENSLEY FREDERICK CHARLES H - WILLIAM - MARY HARRIET - CAMDEN ** 10 Jan

NSW Marriage 9186/1902 BENSLEY FREDERICK C H - PARKER ELIZA - GOULBURN ** 17 Dec


Frederick is William's son from William's first marriage.

If this Eliza is the one born Berrima then we have sisters marrying a father and his son.

Thanks Geoff.

Births
20621/1903 BENSLEY ELSIE A - FREDERICK C H - ELIZA - CROOKWELL
12857/1907 BENSLEY HARRIET I - FREDERICK C H - ELIZA - CROOKWELL

BENSLEY Elsie Death notice --JAN1956 52 late of Crookwell Goulburn Post 19JAN1956

BENSLEY Isabel Death notice 06JUL1993 Death 86 formerly of Woonona Illawarra Mercury 07JUL1993

Death 26631/1956 BENSLEY ELIZA - FREDERICK CHARLES - ELIZABETH - CROOKWELL ** 25 Aug

Not in Ryerson and I can't find anything in SMH archive.

That's clearly an error with name of spouse listed as her father.

Eliza born 18 Oct 1867 Berrima - parents Edward & Elizabeth. She is unmarried and with her father in Bowral in 1888.

Any trace after that assuming she didn't marry Frederick in 1902.

Ok, Dave...

Still not finding anything either :rolleyes:

On reflection there is a lot going for the Berrima Eliza... There doesn't appear to be another that would fit for age at death..
