No Fernie Simpson in 1861, 1871 or 1881 England or Scotland census.

No death in England after 1868 for a Fernie Simpson.

Fernie appears as a surname and middle name on SP records. Wyness appears as a surname on SP.

Another puzzle.

Birth 35036/1899 SANDS GEORGE H - GEORGE H - SARAH - TAMWORTH

1958 NSW Electoral Roll - Richmond - Tweed
SANDS Fernie Isobel, Francis street, Tweed Heads, home duties
SANDS George Henry, Francis street, Tweed Heads, ----

1963 NSW Electoral Roll - Richmond - Tweed
SANDS Fernie Isobel, 8 Francis street, Tweed Heads, home duties
SANDS George Henry, 8 Francis street, Tweed Heads, ----

Death not found for George.

1968 NSW Electoral Roll - Richmond - Tweed
SANDS Fernie Isobel, 8 Francis street, Tweed Heads, home duties

===
This one ruled out by 1958 and 1963 Lilley but not there in 1968.

Death 1965/B71561 Sands George Henry - Henry Sands - Sarah -

Thanks Geoff.

I've looked at that and found nothing that fitted.

The marriage for John & Jane (not Fernie) not found. The birth reg for Joseph & John not found.

Last time around I didn't have Jane's maiden name so will look again.

I can't find a marriage for John Simpson to Jane Rodger/Roger.

I can't find birth reg for Joseph and John with mmn to fit.

Wolsingham is RD Weardale.
