Thanks gibbo.

If that one then Hunter area of NSW, so Bourke makes no sense. Also, if that one then the only child to end up in Vic.

If that one then this is a sister who married where she lived.

Marriage 2703/1868 FITZGERALD PATRICK - MARNANE MARGARET - MORPETH * 6 Feb


So many bits don't fit but no birth/baptism in NSW for a second one. Middle name Mary not on baptism record. No parents on the death reg.

If I had to guess then I'd say some Irish orphan ended up in Bourke and married there. But I can't put that in my tree.
