Something is not right.

John ALEXANDER 'Speke' 1821 Ticket of Leave District: Liverpool?; Tried: Edinburgh CJ [4/4179; Reel 949]

2x John Alexander both from Edinburgh ??

One married Ann Clark and the other Ann Dunn ??
 
NSW Marriage 691/1832 V1832691 127 ALEXANDER JOHN - CLARKE ANN - LD= RC Sydney, St Mary's

Children in post #4 can't be correct.

Jessie and Sarah {the CofE baptisms in post #1) belong to John & Ann Dunn and three belong to the other pair (RC marriage).

Ok that tree is only partially correct.

John per 'Medina' did not marry Ann Dunn and they did not have 5 children.

Ann CLARKE "Earl of Liverpool" 1831 Certificate of Freedom 29 May 1844 TL 41/1303; wife of John Alexander, per "Medina" [1823] (as stated on her CF) [4/4391; Reel 1017]
 
Sarah Jane Alexander
1848–1938
BIRTH 28 DEC 1848 • Prospect, New South Wales, Australia
DEATH 1938 • Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
 
Thanks Ellie.

Only Sarah Jane and Jessie are daughters of Ann Dunn. Same minister, same residence and same father's occ. Not so for the other three children.

I have found nothing to sort out the deaths for 2x John.
 
I can't find a different tree. Nothing found in Trove. Not in ACI= Australian Cemeteries Index.
