Death CRAIG CATHERINE 606/1877 JOHN BARBARA - SYDNEY * 12 Apr

Curious. There seems to be no death or funeral notices in Trove.

Now I can't find where they fit in my tree.

Thanks Geoff.

I'll have a look in Vic. index.

William Lynn was a convict and it's unusual for mother's maiden name to be in index of old church records.

Application to marry for William Lynn ('Mangles' 1825) to Rebecca Bradley ??
