I have a death for a Henry TUCKER in NSW in 1852.

I also have a marriage in Qld. in 1847 for a Henry TUCKER who was a Widower.

Do we have 3x or 2x or 1x Henry ???
With no death for Marianne I can't prove that it's the same Henry who married twice. I can't even prove the 1852 burial is the one who married in 1841 or the one who married in 1847.

Only two children from the 1847 marriage:

1854/BBP324 Tucker Robert Owen - Henry - Jannet -

1854/BBP364 Tucker Marion - Henry - Janet -
V18502538 35/1850 TUCKER MARION - HENRY - JANET
We've looked at this one previously but now I have a copy of the 1841 marriage in post #1, which I didn't have before, showing Henry as a Bachelor.

A death for a 2nd Henry would also help.
The name is clearly PAPPER not PEPPER. I expected it to be German but when I googled I got Scandinavian hits.

I can see no children from the 1841 marriage.
There is one piece of evicence that points to the burial in 1852 being the Henry who married in 1847.

The Moreton Bay Courier (Brisbane, Qld. : 1846 - 1861) - Saturday 20 August 1853
At Brisbane, by special license, on the 15th August, by the Rev. Charles Stewart, Mr. John Turnbull, Kinnoul, Dawson River, to Jessie, relict of the late Mr. Henry Tucker, Sydney.

Jessie =Jannet = Jane = ...

I can't find any tree that helps re Henry. Have no idea where he was born.

1841 marriage Presbyterian and 1847 marriage CofE. May or may not mean we have 2x Henry but Marianne is a problem.
Pity there is no occupation on that burial record.

Too many Henry TUCKERs born in England around 1819.

No Henry TUCKER in NSW birth reg index or assisted to NSW.
