Thanks gibbo.

I have the image of one baptism so not sure it will help to get the images of the others.

Knowing siblings of John born 1839 could help if they are traced.

Funeral notice of 1904 only mentions children.

I have nothing at the moment that points to the 1839 birth as being correct. Age at death is a bit out. No parents on death reg so informant may or may not have the right age.

No image found yet of the 1869 marriage. If by chance it is RC and Sydney St. Mary's then there are films at the State Library.

RC baptism in 1839 so if we rule out the 1869 marriage and the 1904 death because the burial was CofE then we need to be sure by finding a RC burial with an age that fits the 1839 birth.

I'll look up the 1848 baptism and check the abode.

The two burials in post#2 are RC. I can tell by the Volume no.

We have Hunter with Maitland and out west with Wellington and Mudgee and inner Sydney with Newtown.

The only tree found so far has a Hugh and Catherine in NZ but dates don't fit.

Nothing yet that shows John son of Hugh and Catherine was the one who married Margaret Mylett.
