I tried to look up this baptism today at the local library and found a Patrick MARTIN - James & Catherine at #3030. No sign of Mary on that page. I decided not to scan 3997 entries in Volume 72 for Mary. Vol 72 is RC.

Mary Anne Dunn
Christening Date 17 Sep 1854
Christening Place Kiama Parish, Camden County, NSW
John Dunn & Catherine Murphy
Image of the page from Vol 72. It's not Parish of Kiama in the County of Camden.

It's the correct volume and a total of 3997 baptisms.

Vol 72 + 3225-end (3997) Bap 1855 Roman Catholic

If you put 3030/1855 in the index you don't even get the one in volume 72.

Or Wednesday or Thursday.

Clearly Dunne on the image but the correct vessel.
