Thanks Emeltee.

This family is not easy. Thomas Richard married twice and it seems to sisters. I'm still working on that bit.

It should be Ryan if I have the right marriage.

598/1859 GOLDFINCH THOMAS BARBER - RYAN MARY - SYDNEY * 16 Aug

Or Ryan is an error in NSW BDM index.

Can't see any middle names with Ryan or Ryland so far.

Don't know how reliable father = Thomas is and no mother listed.

Death 5908/1920 GOLDFINCH MARY - THOMAS - PETERSHAM * 8 Apr 1920

GOLDFINCH Mary Funeral notice 08APR1920 Death 80 at Leichhardt SMH 09APR1920

From the Will of Thomas Richard Goldfinch:
[daughter Annie Cooper my cottage situated at 5 Norman Street Rozelle]
[I request my said daughter do permit my wife Mary to reside in the said cottage]

Says 'my wife' not Annie's mother.

Mary didn't die in that house after all. Died in a son's house.

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - ROZELLE - ROZELLE POLLING-PLACE
COOPER Annie, 5 Norman-street, domestic duties
COOPER Lily, 5 Norman-street, domestic duties
COOPER Thomas George, 5 Norman-street, traveller
GOLDFINCH Annie, 5 Norman-street, domestic duties [Mary ?]

I'd better trace Annie who married Thomas Cooper.

Thanks Emeltee.

I have no very little on Mary so far. Age 80 in 1920. Buried CofE Waverley Cemetery. Father = Thomas.

Ann is her daughter.

Birth 3156/1860 GOLDFINCH ANN - THOMAS - MARY - CHIPPENDALE

Marriage 3314/1886 COOPER CHARLES M - GOLDFINCH ANNIE - RANDWICK * 26 Jan

Consecutive entries in the church register but one on 26 Jan and the next on 9 Feb by the same minister.

20x Mary Ryan in NSW 1840 +/- 3 hits searching for mary ry*

No death in NSW index for a Thomas Ryand/Ryland.
