Marriage 6748/1882 NIQUET THEOPHILUS ALEXANDER - ALLAN MARY - WENTWORTH * 22 Nov

Looking for any tree that might help with Mary's birth abt 1861.

Thanks,

Dave
 
Thanks gibbo. No proof.

Because Mary returned to her extended family in the Yass locality and was then transferred to another apprenticeship possibly located within the diocese of the local priest, DAVARIN, it is possible, but based only on supposition and conjecture, that Mary was the Mary ALLEN who married Theophilus Alexander NIQUET in Wentworth in 1882. It is unlikely that the marriage certificate of Theophilus NIQUET and Mary recorded her parents or her place of birth as these have remained unidentified by descendants.56 Some online trees now identify the birth location of Mary NIQUET as Scotland but no references are included.
 
5x Mary born in NSW and Vic. around 1861.

Being a death in SA it does not list parents very often.

Wonder if her marriage cert. would have any information, but then no doubt others have obtained it and it obviously no help to confirm anything.

Ok i just read your previous post and my above post shows i didnt read yours properly :LOL: You had already covered the marriage cert. bit.
 
No problems gibbo. I don't have a copy of the marriage cert. A bit far off a main line for that.

Looks to be a brick wall.

No death found for Theo. Some say 1903 USA others 1920.

Appears he dropped his first name at times.

South Australian Register (Adelaide, SA : 1839 - 1900)
Tue 9 Jun 1891
Theordore Niquet, alias Alexander Niquet , was brought up on remand and accused with being a person " wanted" by the New South Wales police, the man being arrested on a pro- visional warrant. The offence was an ancient etc

Not the most popular name, any changes may help in finding him..

No closer to Mary's birth or Theo' death..

SA BMD:
NIQUET Marie F Theodor Alexander NIQUET Angaston 601/259 1897

Anc has her mother as Mary Allan

A couple of trees have Theo's death as Angaston, but date :rolleyes:

Geoff

EDIT: Also d. 1897

Thanks, Dave..

Yeah, noticed that.. Using the surname they can eventually be pinned down, lack of E/R's is frustrating :(

Not seen any outgoing to the US yet.

There is this, though a long shot..

NIQUET [Male] Hindmarsh 683/5693 1944

Thanks Geoff.

South Australia is the odd state out in many ways.

Still uses Book/Volume and page, allows very few E/R to be published, first one to have a deposit scheme on bottles and cans, ...
