Hello,

Harriett OLIVER baptised 11 July 1835 Beckley, Sussex ???

- father William a Farmer & Brickmaker b. abt 1812 Beckley, Sussex, son of John OLIVER. ???

- mother Naomi FREEMAN b. abt 1812 Udimore, Sussex, daughter of Richard FREEMAN & Maria BATES ???

Richard FREEMAN & Maria BATES
Marriage: 13 Apr 1809 Peasmarsh, Sussex ???

2nd marriage for both:
No 6 Wesleyan Methodist Chapel Macquarie Street Parramatta

Both x mark
Witnesses: William Stimson, Harriet Oliver

Harriet married on 28 Oct 1856.

Death 3237/1862 CHANNELL NAOMI - RICHARD - MARIA - CAMDEN

William's burial does not help:

Reg V1851440 110/1851 OLIVER WILLIAM AGE 41

Burials in the Parramatta Circuit in the County of Cumberland in the year 1851
No 440 William Oliver Age: 41 years Abode: Parramatta When Buried: 11th Decr. 1851 Ship's Name: - Quality or Profession: - By whom the Ceremony was performed: Rev. W. B. Boyce (Wesleyan)


I don't think any of these baptisms or marriages can be verified from any current on-line source.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

You may well be right, kept themselves well hidden :confused:

Just a passing thought, did James die early? You don't mention him in your post.

Hello Geoff,

I'm not sure where the authors of the various trees get the info because I can't find any of those parishes on-line. Only way would be via someone with access to the parish records.

James, brother of Harriett ?

NSW Death 1683/1903 OLIVER JAMES - WILLIAM - NAOMI - GOULBURN

Not in Ryerson Index so no age at death.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

I know, having been caught short with a couple of trees meself lately redf)

James was only 11 mo. on the arrival details, I was hoping there may be something via him.... I know from 1837, Beckley/Peasmarsh came under the RYE reg. dist.

Hello Geoff,

Ok, I should do a bit more on James. :) It's Harriett who is connected to my tree by marriage to FURNER. All 7 parishes I want in E Sussex for several families have no OPC yet.

Yes, I did check Beckley and found nothing. All I can do is send an email to the Beckley OPC.

Regards,

Dave
