You would normally expect Lavender Bay to be in North Sydney Registration District but if the death was in the large public hospital then that's RD St Leonards.

I still can't work out the Anderson bit unless it's an error in the reg the middle name has been taken as the surname.

Also wondering about a convict connection.

I couldn't see an Anderson connection...

I did also wonder about the convict connection... I did hint at it with Edward Stephens in an earlier post. There is also an Edmund (Convict) b. at a similar time, there are some similarities, but can't get back to same parents :rolleyes:
