Thanks Geoff.

Can't see a marriage in NSW for a 'Tom' PEAK(E) to a Mary.

Looks like not NSW for marriage and birth.

NSW Deaths 8x Thomas Peake and 4x Peak to 1950. 4x Mary Peak and 4x Peake.

The Peaks'/Woodbridges' look to have been in the Tamworth and Newcastle areas..

Edward John peak was charged with stealing eggs from a railway shed in Tamworth. This may be his father in 1907..

Edward J Woodbridge
