I can't find a tree and I can't find them in early NSW records so I'm assuming England for now.

Page 139
Marriages solemnized in the Parish of St Lawrence in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1853
No. 447
Thomas Plumber of this Parish Bachelor
Harriet Taylor of the Parish South Alexandria Spinster
married in Church by Banns with the consent of the father of the said Harriet Taylor - a minor
Seventh day of July 1853 By me W. H. Walsh
Both signed
Witnesses: Agnes Taylor of Waverley, James T. Taylor of Waverley

NSW Birth 3306/1858 PLUMMER MARTHA R - THOMAS - HARRIET - PADDINGTON

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 7 November 1928 p.14
DEATHS
CHANNON.-November 5, 1928, at a private hospital Manly, Martha Rebecca Channon, dearly beloved mother of LLoyd, Jessie, Etta, Adeline, Dorothy and Ronald and loving sister of Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Chudleigh, Mrs. Kerridge, Mrs. Hart and Mrs. Murray.

So Martha had lots of sisters.

Looking for any more info on Thomas and Harriet.

Thanks,

Dave

I wonder if this is Harriet, she was a minor when she married...

Harriet Taylor
Birth Year: abt 1838
Age: 2
Arrival Date: 16 May 1840
Vessel Name: Thomas Lowry
[James 37, London, Cabinet maker. Harriet 34, Liverpool, Upholsterer. James 11, London, son. Harriet 2, Liverpool, dau. Rel: Prot']

Native places a bit of a concern. The list looks a bit messy so could be error.

Thanks Geoff.

For now we have to assume the death reg is correct and her parents are James and Harriet. We know roughly when she was born so the arrival looks good. It may have nothing to do with Shropshire.

Age: 35
Gender: Female
Arrival Date: 26 Jul 1841
Vessel Name: Queen Victoria
Children's Names: Thomas, Charles, Edwin, Joseph
[Ages in 1841, in order: 14, 11, 9 and 7]

One of those trees has this:
