Looking for the marriage and their deaths. Thanks.

Who is Ellen Bennett?

Daily Observer (Tamworth, NSW) - Fri 2 May 1919 p.3
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW SOUTH WALES.— Probate Jurisdiction.— In the Will of ELLEN BENNETT, late of Denison-street, West Tamworth, ... may be granted to HENRY JOHN ROLF HUNT ...

Ellen was a widow so possibly a elderly lady??

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF NEW SOUTH WALES.— Probate Jurisdiction.— In the Will of ELLEN BENNETT, late of Denison-street, West Tamworth, in the State of New South Wales, Widow, deceased. Application will be made after fourteen days from the publication hereof that Probate of the last Will of the above-named deceased may be granted to HENRY JOHN ROLF HUNT and GEORGE BRYANT, the Executors named in the said Will, and all notices are to be served at the undermentioned address. H. J. HUNT, Fitzroy-street, West Tamworth.
Thanks gibbo.

If H. J. Hunt is the same Henry then his connection may be by being a solicitor ??
Henry John R Hunt b 1880 Tamworth – Henry Hunt & Margaret Hogue Greentree (they married 1878 Tamworth) - Margaret H Jeffrey married 1st Jan 1867 Richard Greentree (1841-1877)
Henry died 1974 – reg 54892
On all ER's Henry J R is down as Labourer.

Catherine Casey b 1886 Greta NSW John Thomas Casey (1850-1919) & Matilda Mary Whtehead (1853-1892) – they married July 1874 St Bridget’s church Branxton
Catherine died 1959 – Tamworth reg 5135

Thanks Val.

Then H. J. Hunt is not the same person and I don't know the connection of H. J. R. to Ellen.
Not that important gibbo. A long way off a main line. We have 2x J Hunt and the connection is not because he was a solicitor - as Val says, he was a labourer. Just wondering why he was an executor. You found that probate last time around as we were trying to sort out the Hunt family.
One thing we didn't look for last time was the earlier marriage. And we didn't look for him in 1841 census.

He would be the grandfather. A Henry in between.
