Thanks Rupert.

Gresford is a village in Hunter region so hardly fits.

What is in the column after his name?

The one below looks like 'bushboy'


I'm not sure I have this family properly sorted.

William JONES b. 27 Sep 1836 c. 7 Oct 1836 Gt Cross Hall St, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Henry JONES & Margret EVANS

Death 13807/1914 JONES WILLIAM - HENRY O - - GOULBURN ** 13 Aug 1914

Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) - Saturday 15 August 1914 p.2
OBITUARY
Another very old resident of Goulburn in the person of Mr. William Jones died at his late residence, Auburn-street, at 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, at the age of 78, after having been in failing health for the past few years. He leaves, besides a widow, two sons and one daughter. He was born in England and came out to Australia 73 years ago. The sons are Mr. George Jones, of the firm of E. Jones and Co., and Mr. W. F. L. Jones, violinist, and the daughter is Mrs. A. G. Furner, all of Goulburn. The funeral took place on Friday morning, the remains being interred in the Methodist portion of the general cemetery.


Death 3012/1879 JONES MARGARET AGE 70 YEARS DIED NEWTOWN NEWTOWN ** 25 Nov

Parents William EVANS & Ann.

===
This is the John aged 16 in the 1842 shipping record with family.

It would seem to indicate they have different mothers. So Henry O. must have first been married to a Grace in Wales.

Death 16087/1916 JONES JOHN - HENRY O - GRACE - NEWTOWN

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 12 December 1916 p.6

John born abt 1826 Wales and William born abt 1836 Lancashire.

A marriage for a Henry Owen JONES to a Margret EVANS.

FS seems to have removed a heap of English marriages.

No marriage on the Lancs OPC site.

Found only one but with those names I expect 20. :D
