I think I know but can't prove it yet.

Those two births must have been very close for two different families to get consecutive reg #.

Thanks gibbo.

That bit is new info for me.

I think the Wesleyan marriage is the clue because a daughter of Ellis & Jane was buried in Methodist cemetery (but that may have been because of spouse not grandparents).

Ooops hang on, going by that link Jane was born to the second marriage of Thomas. Jane was from the second wife whose name was Mary.

Thomas and Eliza raised 8 children at “Parkwood”: Thomas, Mary Ann, William, Samson, Samuel, John, Eliza and Lydia. Alfred and Harriet Bembrick who were orphans were also raised by Thomas and Eliza. In 1852 Eliza died from birth complications and her baby Jabez died 4 months later. They are buried at St John’s Cemetery, Reid. In 1853 Thomas married a widow, Mary Croxton (nee Roffe) at Gunning, and had 9 more children: James, Richard, Sarah, Jane, Elizabeth, Mark, Hannah, Beatrice and Benjamin. Mary’s daughters Anne and Harriet were also raised in this large family.

This is strange :confused:

V1853311 85/1853 SOUTHWELL THOMAS CROXTON MARY IQ
2888/1857 SOUTHWELL THOMAS ROFFE ELIZA YASS

Eliza the first wife died in 1852. why 2 marriage index for different years and different wife names. Was he married 3 times?
Or maybe the 1857 marriage is his son who was also named Thomas.

From the link on the family on a previous post on here ... Is the below a error??

Thomas married a widow, Mary Croxton (nee Roffe)
