Two sisters and a double wedding but not consecutive reg # or same date.

Also don't know which church is the correct one.

The reg in between.

6192/1892 HORN ERNEST A L VON - UPCROFT MARY A - PARRAMATTA * 23 Jan 1892

That makes no sense. Date 23rd between 27th and 28th.

Double wedding can't be on different days anyway.

Some public trees even have the 29th :rolleyes:

Can't see them in St John's, some trees have All Saints..

Unless I've got me sums wrong Blanche was only 15y when she married :eek:

Thanks Geoff.

I will check if the State Library has films of the registers for those two churches.

I just checked all the births in the index and Alice is the 7th and Blanche the 8th daughter.

The marriages are not on FS.

Thanks Geoff.

William Mobbs gave the land for the church and the cemetery which is not next to the church but further down the road. He was the first to be buried there. The area is called Mobbs Hill.

Several things from those images.

The minister didn't sign the second.

Clearly 27 and 28 so not the same day.

All Saints Church North Parramatta.

They are sisters but mother's name is not the same ??

Don't know what to make of this notice?

Oh!

The minister has signed them both as far as I can see, Dave... He has completed the cert's, so it looks like his error, Blanch' name = 3x :rolleyes:
