Looking for an image of that marriage, thanks.

Arrived in Australia between 1847 & 6 Jun 1852 ???

Page 149 & 150
Baptisms solemnized in the Parish of St. Lawrence Sydney in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1852
No. 2102 When Baptised: 6th June When Born: 24th May 1850 Henry Ekins - George Ekins & Georgiana Crane Abode: Strawberry Hills Quality or Profession: Brick Layer By whom the Ceremony was performed: W. J. M. Hillyar

No. 2103 When Baptised: 6th June When Born: 30th April 1852 Francis - George Ekins & Georgiana Crane Abode: Strawberry Hills Quality or Profession: Brick Layer By whom the Ceremony was performed: W. J. M. Hillyar

It does not give pob so one can't assume they were both born in Australia.

can't find birth of Henry Ekins Crane in England.

looks like Ekins comes from Sophia's side of the family :-
marriages St George Hanover Sq:-

witts. George Eikens Dyer & Sophia Dyer

5 Aug 1822

looks like Daniel & Sophia Crane named their son George Ekins after Sophia's brother or father
