The most interesting thing about the marriage is the note on the bottom. :2fun:

So it looks as though parents had died. Interesting that Joseph PATE was Henry's Guardian. The other bit of interest is the 2nd witness Ellen (nee FARMER).

Yes, it means revisiting the ADLEM - FARMER - PATE puzzle. :2fun:

I'm now going to type in the details of Ellen's (Helena Ann) death certificate which I decided to get at the same time as the above marriage not knowing she was a witness to it though.

Where to start? :rolleyes:

Ok. Take eldest son and informant, Joseph Edward. We have no birth reg for him as PATE. Age on his mother's death certificate is 30 but age at his death gives a birth 2 years earlier and 2 years before his mother married:

PATE Joseph Edward Death notice 18NOV1951 Death 85 late of Randwick SMH 19NOV1951

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 19 November 1951 p.14
DEATHS
PATE, Joseph Edward.-November 18, 1951, at hospital, of 22 St. Luke Street Randwick, dearly beloved husband of Mary Ann, loved father of Florence (Mrs. S Shapter), Cecil and Ruby (dec.), fond father-in-law of Mary, dear grandfather of John, Marie, Don and Joyce, great-grandfather of Stephen and Joyce, aged 85 years. At rest.

Hard to know how accurate the the two estimates of age are but certainly there is no birth reg 1866-1869 for him as PATE.

The age 16 at marriage fits: 140/1868 PATE JOSEPH - FARMER ELLEN - SYDNEY

Birth V18502093 35/1850 FARMER ELEANOR - EDWARD - JEMIMA
