NSW Death 7138/1874 EYLES ELIZA - ROBERT DIED PARRAMATTA PARRAMATTA * 16 Jun

Age possibly 51 and not sure if father as Robert is correct.

Looking for more on Eliza and her parents, thanks.
 
Findagrave has:

James Eyles b 7 Sept 1820 NSW died 7 May 1907 age 86
 
Thanks Val.

This from ACI has the wrong date of death - it's the burial.

EYLES Eliza 18 Jun 1874 51 dau/Robert Parramatta Methodist Cemetery, North Parramatta, NSW

The dates for James are correct.

NSW Bap V18205242 1B/1820 EYLES JAMES - JOSEPH - ELIZABETH - CB= CofE Parramatta, St John's

1820 October 1 James Joseph & Elizabeth Eyles When Born: Septr. 7 St.J Parramatta

I have the details for Eyles side.
 
No baptism for Eliza 1823 +/- 2 on Lancs OPC with father as Robert.

If father is not Robert then there is no baptism in 1823.
 
I've searched and searched Trove for Robert and Eliza Sanders/Saunders and nothing definite.

One Robert worked at Pyrmont quarries but he was not old enough.

My transcription of the image of the Parish Register on a different film. The details are not identical.

It's a bit unusual in that the church and the parish do not have the same name.

Christ Church (= High CofE) St Laurence in the Parish of St Lawrence.
