Marriage 592/1862 BARNES WILLIAM JOHN - BROWN JANET - SYDNEY * 16 Jul 1862 [Presbyterian]

The Sydney Morning Herald - Fri 18 Jul 1862 p.1
MARRIAGES
On the 16th instant, at her mother's residence, Bourke-street, Woolloomooloo, by the Rev. J. McGibbon, W. Barnes, Esq., son of John Barnes, Esq., of Murrumburrah, to Janet, second daughter of the late W. Brown, Esq.

Bap V18455795 45B/1845 BROWN JANET - WILLIAM - JANET

Can't find the marriage of William Brown to Janet in NSW index.

The first one in the index.

BROWN ROBERT 3298/1838 V18383298 45B WILLIAM - JANET

Janet still alive in 1862.

If William died in NSW then there are 62x deaths in the index to 1862.

Thanks Geoff.

Looks like it will be after mid June before libraries will allow access to fiche or films.

The marriage is not in the NSW index.

Better look for an arrival.

Oh.

Rookwood has changed the format of their on-line records three times in 11 years. The bottom one is the current one. I'm collecting some evidence and will complain to them that the new index contains less info than previous index entries - no age.

JANET BARNES Age 60 - 17/11/1906 Zone B D 782
Janet Barnes Date of Burial: 17 Nov 1906 Age: - Plot: D_Zone B/#/782

No marriage on FS for William Brown to Janet Gray. Or NSW index.

The names are both very common so maybe not this one.
