Death 1873 BARRATT George 56 John - Lucy DUNN b. Wiltshire d. Vic. #8863

Can't find a death in Victoria for John with matching parents to prove he is a brother.

Can't find the marriage of John to Lucy Dunn.

Can't find the marriage of John to Mary C.

Big gap between dob but shipping record says John has gone to brother George at Ballarat.

I've not found John's death yet.
 
Shipping record in post #1 and pob for Mary C and children?

Thanks.

That vessel is not on the NSW Records site.

Work on finding births and mmn and then marriage and then census.

Dave
 
Yeah, trying to match some names with births/marriages etc., can't see an obvious marriage. Also John would only be about 20y when James was born, all 4 should be in the 1851?

One interesting point is that their religion is Non-C.. Not C of E, not Pres', not Wes', not RC.. Other persuasion.

Something is wrong Geoff.

Some assumptions need to be changed.

Post #1.

Are those two actually children or nephews? Children of George and Ann??

Look at the children in census in post #2.

Wrong one Geoff.

Sons of George in census correct.

But I think the two in post #1 are sons of George not of John. As you said, John is too young.

George arrived with eldest son George and daughter Rose but not the middle two.
