NSW Marriage 1657/1879 HARRISON THOMAS - YARD PRISCILLA - NEWTOWN

A son: 8673/1884 HARRISON NORMAN J C - THOMAS - PRISCILLA - NEWTOWN

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 4 May 1907 p.12
MARRIAGES
HARRISON - PERDRIAU.-April 25, at Granville, N.S.W., by the Rev. Hugh Wilson, Norman John, son of Thomas Harrison, of Wahroonga, to Ruby Florence, daughter of Harold Perdriau, of Granville.


Looking for the birth of Priscilla and death of both.

One of these - perhaps the Hornsby one fits best:

25892/1919 HARRISON PRISCILLA - JOHN - DEBORAH - HORNSBY
27835/1946 HARRISON PRISCILLA - GEORGE - MARY - WAVERLEY

Neither in Ryerson. No death for a Thomas registered in Hornsby. One registered in Chatswood in 1950 but he would be way too old.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks gibbo.

That's a few notices I didn't have.

Huge number of possible deaths for Thomas.

There are two trees and neither have a death for Thomas.

His birth is listed as 1844 London - no parents given.

Marriage has his father as Matthew.

Hello Val,

Thank you very much. With so many I was wondering if the right Thomas could be found.

I think that's it for this topic.

Dave
