Thanks gibbo. :)

Don't know yet about that one. Expected middle name Richard to be included.

It's not this one:

LAWRENCE John Rees Death notice 15AUG1898 Publication 75 late of Summer Hill Sydney Morning Herald 15AUG1898

Then there is this one in Hunter region:

LAWRENCE John Death notice 27APR1887 Death 73 late of Lostock, Paterson River, formerly of Somersetshire, England Maitland Mercury 07MAY1887

This birth where they married on south coast of NSW. Bourke is in far NW of the state:

5718/1863 LAWRENCE MARY J - JOHN R - MARGARET - BOMBALA


Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) - Thursday 12 May 1859 p.2
THE COUNTRY.
The Justices in Petty Sessions assembled, have appointed Mr John Richard Lawrence to be keeper of the public pound at Bombala, in the place of Mr Henry Clement Hogarth, resigned.

The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle (NSW : 1864 - 1881) - Saturday 14 October 1865 p.4
...
NEW INSOLVENTS
...
John Richard Lawrence, Bombala, licensed victualler. Liabilities, £839 9s. 1d. Assets, £690 19s. 6d. Deficiency, £148 9s. 7d. Mr. Sempill, official-assignee.


I'm not sure about Bourke, but it would mean 2x John & Margaret.

This is probably him with names reversed:

Richard John Lawrence b. 12 July 1828 c. 31 July 1828 Portsea, Hampshire
John Lawrence & Mary Ann

And there is this death with right parents:

Death 2863/1898 LAWRENCE JOHN - JOHN - MARY - PARRAMATTA ** 7 Jan

But nothing I can find in TROVE to help.


From a tree:

Margaret Coulter was born in Pethia, Fermanagh, Ireland. She married John Richard Lawrence, son of John Lawrence and Mary Ann Wilson, on 21 April 1859 in St Matthias Church of England, Bombala.

I can't find another marriage in NSW to explain the births in Bourke.

5109/1876 LAWRENCE JOHN AGE 31 YEARS DIED BOURKE BOURKE
Born 1845 and married in 1859 ???

I think it's coincidence there is a second John Richard in NSW.


Seems only three children born in Bombala so did John die soon after 1863?

Back to this death then:

Death 2863/1898 LAWRENCE JOHN - JOHN - MARY - PARRAMATTA ** 7 Jan

Parents are correct but can't find age at death. Not in Ryerson.
