Looks as though the family moved from Portland Head [Presbyterian marriage] to East and West Maitland [RC baptisms] then to Hartley.

Deaths not yet found for Hugh senior and Catherine.

There are a few poorly sourced trees, a couple have nothing for Hugh and this for Catherine, not validated..

"Death 1900 Ryde, New South Wales, Australia"
