It has to be an error in the BMD index with date as 24th. Marriage of brother and sister - name is actually POLL - family from Little/Great Fransham, Norfolk. The Minister or his clerk wrote the name in several places as Paul.

The events are given BMD reg # in sequence as they appear in the church register so somehow they are out of sequence. And what about reg #1581. ???

The Church entry numbers 73 and 74 were in sequence.

I've sent NSW BMD 10 emails since August about events on 31st of April and 31st September and other issues and have never had a reply. Pathetic is one word. :rolleyes:

I'll have to look this one up in the film of the Church register:

1581/1864 WOODS EDWARD - BARRETT ISABELLA - BERRIMA ** 24 Dec 1864
