Probably why GRO not found..

Bap gives only a Surname = Yard and Abode = Buckland Mills and confirms base born.

Thanks Geoff.

Don't know what is what with this one.

Priscilla was 64 in 1919 so that rules out 1843.

So if born about 1855 and youngest daughter of John Yard then no birth reg?

So, John from Somerset arrives single and marries Maria Cox.

By July 1882 when John dies there are a son, and two daughters surviving.



YARD EMMA G 301/1853 V1853301 39A JOHN MARIA

Priscilla ? about 1855 ?

YARD FRANCIS J 1165/1856 JOHN MARIA - SYDNEY

YARD HERBERT M 1814/1858 JOHN MARIA - SYDNEY

YARD ALBERT J 2036/1863 JOHN MARIA - SYDNEY

So deaths for two of those three sons by 1882?

So Maria becomes Deborah Maria. Or an error by informant.

No baptism on FS for Priscilla.

J YARD Age - - 5/07/1882 Zone A Old Ground 1737

D M YARD Age 82 - 6/08/1913 ? Zone A Old Ground 1741

Date is wrong.

Wonder who is in 1739 in between. Odd side by side and even numbers side by side.

Rookwood index requires at least an initial for given name.

Thomas & Priscilla.

P HARRISON Age 64 - 16/10/1919 Zone A Old Ground 1735

T HARRISON Age 81 - 4/05/1925 Zone A Old Ground 1735
