The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 17 June 1857 p.1
MARRIAGES
On the 10th instant, at St. Mary's, Balmain, by the Rev. W. Stack, Mr. Frederic Messiter, of Malmesbury, Wilts, to Jane, youngest daughter of the late William Price, Esq., of Rodborough Fort, Gloucestershire.

Burial 186008250 122/1860 MISSITE FREDERICK AGE 38 YEARS DIED SYDNEY


The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 11 February 1860 p.1
DEATHS
On Wednesday, the 8th instant, at his residence, Balmain, Mr. Frederick Messiter, B.A., late of Trinity College, Dublin, aged 38 years.


I don't have Frederic(k)'s parents or Jane's mother's name yet. There are 9 possible deaths for Jane in NSW so it will take some time to sort through them. The trees have no details on either of them apart from the marriage.

Looking for more info prior to 1857 on Frederic(k) and Jane.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

Intreresting that the 1860 burial record has his profession as Drapers assistant. :rolleyes:

Does that tree have anything on Jane?

So, arrival 1851-1857.

Not on Assisted to NSW or Qld. or Vic. Index.

Also interesting, in 1842 he was said to be bankrupt (unsourcesd tree) had a Tailor's shop in Gloucestershire with bro. Edward Stephens Messiter, I couldn't find anything to substantiate it...
