Thanks Geoff.

No notice in Trove for that marriage.

I have no clues re parents. I only have a birth that seems to fit this marriage.

Marriage 4238/1891 ADLAM CHARLES W - MILES LUCY E - GRENFELL * 1 Aug

Can't find a notice in Trove.

Mary Ann d. 1928, there should be an obit here:

"Obituary, The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser, Thursday 3 May 1928"

Thanks Geoff.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Mon 4 Oct 1909 p.11
GENFELL, Saturday.
Mr. Robert Miles, who in the early days kept the Nagshead Hotel, passed away and was buried on Saturday. Latterly he was an enthusiastic member of the Salvation Army.


Death reg has father as John not William.

Obit says born Camden. Camden is not Field of Mars which is Ryde.

Very confusing Dave.
I had a look at the other births for Robert Samuel and Mary ann and one of their sons was named George Treby Miles so i figured that is a name easy to trace.
MILES GEORGE TREBY
7610/1871
ROBERT S
MARY ANN
GRENFELL

then his death

MILES GEORGE TREBY
18392/1936
ROBERT SAMUEL
MARY ANN
GRENFELL

His obit does name some of his siblings and one of them is named Mrs H Adlam which doesn't tie in with your Lucy as Lucy married a Charles W Adlam. I did check another article similar to this one and it also state Mrs H Adlam.

Brothers and sisters are Messrs. Robert, James, Harry and Charlie, and Mrs. James Frazer, Mrs. W. Hodge. Mrs. H. Adlam , Mrs. L. Hodge and Mrs. Geo. Buttenshaw.

Thanks gibbo.

Travel to Vic. to marry and then back to NSW to live.

We seem to have the right deaths for Robert and Mary Ann.

No other Adlam - Miles marriage in NSW index.

Think you defiantly have the right birth for Lucy. All the above names are the same as the obit you posted previously for their mother. Except their mother's obit has C Adlam and not H. Wonder if the H was a error.
