Not as if Mary HOLLIS didn't exist.

There are several baptisms for a Mary in Birmingham.

I can't find a marriage to an UPTON.

Says Tamworth:

Ref ?
Civil Parish: Birmingham
County: Warwickshire
Registration District: Birmingham
Sub-RD: All Saints
William Cook head age 59 occ stationary emp 32 men born Ludlow Shropshire
Eliza wife age 25 born Tamworth Warwickshire
Blanche M dau age 3mths born Birmingham Warwickshire
I can't see any of the sons in 1861 census with a death in Queensland.

You don't pull a name like Mary HOLLIS out of the air so I don't know.

Deaths in Qld:

1864/C0698 Unnamed (M) Hollis - - Mary Hollis ** born Moonie River aged 1 month
1876/C0019 Numa Bingham Hollis - - Mary Hollis ** born St.George aged under 1 year

1941/C2850 Marillier Emma - - Mary Hollis

The last one could be Mary Ann and a different Mary.

Marriage 1913/C3817 Hollis Mary Ann - Sparre Adolphus Frederick Vilhelm Engholm

A baptism record in Qld: 1854/BBP2672 Mary Hollis - Edward - Mary -

It's not 10 years. It's 1848:

V18482977 72/1848 HOLLIS MARY - EDWARD - MARY

Ok, I give up for today on this one. :D
