So far I can't find the marriage for Margaret Smith to Anderson.

It's a sister.

Thanks Geoff.

Yes. Arriving in Vic. aged 1 didn't seem to fit.

So far I can't find Catherine or Ann.

Don't know about this one yet.

Can't find a notice in Trove.
A marriage in 1864 for a Patrick Smith to Eliza McFarland/McFarlane/McFarlen and a death 1881 for Patrick aged 71 and a Will that only names Eliza and a broker David Fitzpatrick.

That is the only death that fits for age, if that 1851 is correct census.
The 1851 is still looking OK, Margaret's marriage was at St. Paul, Shadwell.

Lots of possible marriages in RD Stepney for Ann.

I checked for 12x matching deaths in Vic. and no hit.
