Thanks Geoff.

Rita is on the same page so I still wonder if that is Alfred's wife.

Possible, I only checked for those next to each other [as, say a family], if I'd looked a bit further she is only 2 below Alfred. That said, odd that they aren't listed in order, next to each other as you may expect with a married couple :unsure:

Perhaps Rita arrived single and married in Vic. in 1890.

Alfred married in Vic. in 1890.

No death in Vic. 1888 - 1890 for a Rita Morris.
