Hi Dave

Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1950
Name: Robert Edward Chapman
Spouse Name: Bessie S Cliff
Marriage Date: 1878
Marriage Place: New South Wales
Registration Place: Cootamundra, New South Wales
Registration Year: 1878
Registration number: 3349

Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1950
Name: Robert N Chapman
Spouse Name: Alice G Penfold
Marriage Date: 1932
Marriage Place: New South Wales
Registration Place: North Sydney, New South Wales

I think the N should be H (Hungerford)

Bessie may have married again, though nothing obvious...

Re: Robert Edwin CHAPMAN & Bessie S

Hello Geoff,

Thank you very much.

Well, that explains why searching the Vic. index was no use. I thought perhaps the names were entered as 'rbt edw' or something similar.

Cootamundra is almost Victoria. :)

Stutchbury is not an occupation so Baker is not an occupation.

Re: Robert Edwin CHAPMAN & Bessie S

Married twice:

254/1872 CHAPMAN ROBERT EDWARD - CHIPPINDALE ALICE C - SYDNEY
2546/1872 CHAPMAN ROBERT E - CHIPPINDALL ALICE C - MAITLAND

Deaths
16027/1939 CHAPMAN ROBERT EDWARD - ROBERT - ANNIE LOANE - CHATSWOOD

22330/1939 CHAPMAN BESSIE SOPHIA - JOHN - MARY - CHATSWOOD

So Baker is a mystery on the marriage record.
