Thanks Ellie.

Several errors in all of this so trying to confirm a few things.

It's Parramatta not Parkes which is way further west over the mountains.

NSW BMD has date as 22nd so don't know why others have 23rd.

Burial is possibly Wesleyan Parramatta.

19 Apr and 19 Nov for Isabella. ??

Just checked and NSW BMD has 19 Nov. Was hoping a notice in Trove would confirm one or the other. There are errors in NSW index.


OK, Robert in Wesleyan Methodist North Parramatta. So that's not St. John's.

Headstones removed and cemetery turned in to a park !!

We've done this Ellie - name was Leiper.

Leeper on shipping record.

Trying to find which death date is correct. It will take several months to get a reply from NSW BMD if I query the two dod.

In that case.It's a very good tree,with marr.and bapts records.

Ellie
Yes it did help get from Napier in NSW to Leiper in Scotland.

If there is nothing in Trove then I'll have to query BMD with the dates.

I may have missed something in Trove. Depends very much on the search query being ocr'd correctly or the text has been corrected by someone.

Originally a Methodist cemetery.

Aynsley Thomas 1836 10 May 1923 86 son/James & Elizabeth (Chamberlain); b. Thorpe, Durham, England; h/Isabella (Napier) Cawdor Uniting Church NSW

There are burials for two young children in Methodist North Parramatta but Elizabeth and James are not listed in that cemetery. I can't find any obit or funeral notice for either in Trove.

Aynsley E N 18?Apr 1880 9 May 1880 0 Parramatta Methodist NSW
Aynsley James 1861? 10 Jan 1864 2 Parramatta Methodist NSW
