Thanks Geoff.

I have no idea if that's correct.

Can't see a birth for John in NSW.

Thanks Geoff.

I can't see their arrival to NSW.

The NSW Records site is trying to copy TNA I think by making it as hard as possible to find what you want.

One of the public trees has this:
"John Francis Lee was born about January 1831, in Limerick, Ireland. He married Margaret Herlichy and they had seven children together. He then married Emily Matilda Ann Randall and they had four children together. He died on April 17, 1920, in Mudgee, New South Wales, at the age of 89, and was buried there."

Thanks Geoff.

LEE John 24 Bengal 1855 Sydney and/or Newcastle and wife Reel 2137, [4/4792]; Reel 2468, [4/4944]
LEE Margaret 27 Bengal 1855 Sydney and/or Newcastle and husband Reel 2137, [4/4792]; Reel 2468, [4/4944]

I did search and didn't find that one earlier today.

There is a 2nd reel 2468 so I can look that up at the library and it should list parents and if any relation in colony.

Same tree has this about Margaret:
"Margaret Herlichy was born about 1825, in Limerick, Ireland, the child of Maurice and Elizabeth. She married John Francis Lee about 1854, in London, London. They had seven children in 12 years. She died on January 16, 1888, in Mudgee, New South Wales, at the age of 63, and was buried there."
