Extracted birth record Margaret Jane.

Back again:

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - ST. LEONARDS - BLUE'S POINT POLLING-PLACE
57 BAIRD Elsie Garden, Princes-street
58 BAIRD Margaret Jane, Princes-street, domestic duties
 
Might have to try and rule out the one in Mearns.

I'm off to the library so catch you later Geoff.
 
I had success at the library. After looking many times over the past 15 months I finally found the All Saints burial record for Thomas WILMOTT. >:D
 
I'd like a look up please for Alexander and spouse Eliza in 1881.

Any sign in 1871 of another Margaret/Maggy Garden born Inverness +/- 3 years ?

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 12 September 1846 p.3
DIED.
On Sunday, at his residence, near Berrima, Mr. Thomas Wilmott, aged 63 years, after a short and painful illness, deeply regretted by all who knew him.

Burials in the Parish of All Saints in the County of Camden in the Year 1846
No. 145 Thomas Wilmott Abode: Merriworth When Died: 6th Septr. 1846 When Buried: 13th Septr. 1846 Age: 63 yrs Quality or Profession: Inn Keeper By whom the Ceremony was performed: W. Stone


Merriworth = Merryworth = Mereworth

Clearly says 6th and 13th so that's very unusual to have such a delay. Very short distance to transport his body.
 
So age for Eliza was correct in 1871. A look up for her in 1891 and 1901 thanks.

Isabella died and Eliza is 2nd then.
 
Oh!
