I think the Margaret for her mother on the death index is a error by the informant??

VAUX MARY A1814/1924 (-MCDERMOTT) - MARGARET -PETERSHAM
 
Thanks gibbo.

Don't know if it is two middle names and only one get used. Don't know re mother Margaret.

Assumed a second marriage and a birth as Hitchinson and nothing definite in NSW index.
 
Are you able to look up this marriage Dave? Just thought it would be interesting to see what mother's maiden name is on that.

So born around 1860

Vaux Mary A Age 64 - 21/01/1924 SEC*M2*10**824 Burial

No McDermotts buried in SEC*M2*10.

No births in NSW index 1840 - 1890 for a Mary or Margaret McDermott with parents John & Bridget.
 
Back to this one. 2x Richard Henry.

VAUX, Richard Henry.-July 22, 1963, of 41 Charlotte Street, Leichhardt, at Norfolk Island, loving father of Mary and Morris, aged 76 years.

NSW Death 17176/1952 VAUX RICHARD HENRY - RICHARD HENRY - UNKNOWN - KOGARAH * 21 Sep * age 86

If this one then father is Joseph and father on death reg is an error.

Births Jun Qtr 1865 VAUX Richard Henry - Yeovil 5c 557 mmn GALE

If father in death reg is correct then it's the wrong birth.
