Thanks Emeltee.

It happens and no way to stop it.

I was going to look at

Register of baptisms, marriages and burials 1538 A.D. to 1812 A.D.
by Barnstaple (England : Parish); Wainwright, Thos. (Thomas)

which is on-line on Devon OPC - Barnstaple

No remarriage for Ann.

Wonder when she died. Still alive in 1929. John buried CofE Liverpool, NSW.

Arrival is a bit of a problem.

The search function no longer works on the NSW Mariners site.

Thanks Geoff.

Looks like the family. They wanted off the vessel.

Just back from the local library. Images of some early NSW baptisms, marriages and burials.
