I gave up trying to use filters on FS to find them in census.

Looking for Thomas and Catherine in 1841, 1861 and later census.

Thanks,

I can't find James in shipping records. Not Bee or Parsee or Agricola.

Deaths in NSW for a Catherine Smith 25x with father = John

Deaths in NSW for a Thomas Smith 14x with father = James

Looks like this is Mary A, aged 4 in 1851.

Marriage 594/1869 NAPIER JOHN - SMITH MARY A - SYDNEY * 12 June

Toggling BB made no difference to this so I had to change it after pasting.

Marriage 2594/1863 SMITH JAMES - NAPIER ELLEN - PARRAMATTA * 4 Apr

Death 13851/1891 NAPIER JOHN - ROBERT - ISABELLA - ST LEONARDS

It seems Thomas and children Mary Ann and James arrived. Don't know about Catherine and son John.

James and Mary Ann married Napier/Leiper siblings.

This did help.

MARRIAGES
NAPIER - SMITH.-June 12th, by special license, by the Rev. Dr. Bailey, of the Free Church of England, Mr. John Napier, of Berry-street, North Shore, to Mary Ann, daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Smith, of Kent-street.
That may or may not be on the Sydney CofE PR. Not the Established Church.

Registered in Sydney.

The Napiers were Presbyterian from Scotland. Can't see it being Wesleyan and in Parramatta and the marriage notice to be so far out.
