Marriage lookup please - Henry John Ryder BUSH


Loyal Member
South Australia

Would it be possible for someone to lookup a marriage for
Henry John Ryder BUSH

I've always thought this chap never married as the census records list him as unmarried.

1861 age 19 13 Cornwall Street, Stoke Damerel, Devon Medical Student
1871 age 29 25 Warwick Street, Westminster, London – Medical Practitioner
1881 age 39 41 Gilbert Street, Westminster, London – Surgeon

Born 1841 Devonport, Devon
Died 1883 Westminster, London

Medical Journal 1863 mentioned in Royal College of surgeons
London Gazette 1868 4 Beak Street, Golden Square, Middlesex

To my great surprise:eek: I came across a marriage article in the New Zealand newspaper (Papers Past) which tells me Henry J R BUSH did marry as he had a son henry BUSH.

BUSH - FARNIE June 1st, at William Street Westleyan Church, by Rev J A Nolan, assisted by Rev R Bavin, Henry eldest son of the late Henry John Ryder Bush, M.R.C.S, of London, to Mary second daughter of the late Captain John Farnie, of Wanganui, N.Z. Portsmouth papers please copy.

This marriage took place in Sydney, Australia
1892 m Henry BUSH Mary FARNIE Sydney
1949 d Henry BUSH father Henry John Ryder Chatswood (mother name not listed) "rats"

No birth for Henry Bush in N.S.W, therefore probably born in England.

So I'm guessing a marriage between 1862-1873 in London/Middlesex area.

still in shock
