I did find Ada Harriett Mortimer on 1913 ER at Worrogee, Cross street Woollahra Double Bay
335 Bridge road, Drummoyne.

Ok, won't be easy being 1920 - between 1913 and 1930 rolls.

I'll be at the State Library next Tuesday. The 1917 and then 1921 rolls on fiche. But I need a surname. French being after 1916.

The witnesses may not be correct. Also, who's mother? Don't have age at death for either of them.

Jane must have been under 21.

Birth Date:
01 Sep 1818

Edmund Ireland
Mother's Name:

Oh. That explains why I didn't find it on film.

The stupid index has the year of birth even though the record is a baptism.
The running number matches the baptism date not the birth date.

Edward on death reg is probably an error for his father.

Is it Jane Ireland you want in 1913?


Yes thanks Geoff.

Any burial records too if they can be found.

I didn't find Jane in 1917 on fiche at the State Library so she may or may not be on 1913 roll.
