Looking for births and deaths for Henry and Hannah, thanks.
 
Thanks gibbo.

Born abt 1837 and a native of Morpeth.

I can't find a baptism in NSW index.

Father is John and a brother is A. B.

I can't find a baptism for a* portus.

Thanks emeltee.

1841
Unfortunately, something went wrong and we are unable to display the record.

I thought it might have been Elizabeth Burkett as the mother is Elizabeth on one baptism and two death reg in NSW.

A baptism in NSW in 1842 so arrival 1841-1842.
