John's arrival?

Samuel and Elizabeth will have to wait until tomorrow. I'm watching the BBL cricket semi-final now.

Yeah.

The first semi-final last night was the first full game I've watched this season. I've caught bits of the previous matches. Neither Sydney team made the finals.

Final on Sunday afternoon.

It is Norwich but not Samuel & Elizabeth.

1841
Event Place St Julian, Norfolk, England
Residence Note Church Yard
Birthplace Norfolk
Registration District Norwich
Parish St Julian
County Norfolk
Page Number 8
Registration Number HO107
Piece/Folio 789/25
Samuel Coleman M 45 Norfolk
Sarah Coleman F 40 Norfolk
William Coleman M 20 Norfolk

That's not the right Samuel.

Looks as though Samuel and Elizabeth both died before 1841.

Thanks Geoff.

The Brisbane Courier (Qld.) - Mon 19 Dec 1892 p.4
DEATH
COLEMAN.-On the 15th December, at the residence of her son-in-law (J. Soutter, Albion), Mary, widow of the late J. S. R. Coleman, of Cressbrook, aged 54 years.

Marriage 1885/B9837 Soutter John - Coleman Mary

But this birth reg for a Mary seems odd given the others:

1858/C01122 Coleman Samuel John Spooner Blackham Mary Cairnes
1860 C00417 Coleman Mary John Mary -
1867/C01234 Coleman Elizabeth John Spooner Rackham Mary Cairns


I'll be back a bit later. Work to do between showers.
