Thanks gibbo.

Marriage is not in NSW index so don't know if an early one not recorded or if it was not NSW.

I have no clues if it was England. Ok, an old colonist so he did arrive.

Hannah's maiden name might be Cook(e) ??

Prior Benjamin 5 Oct 1820 10 Feb 1880 60 son/William & Hannah (Cook); b. Airds, NSW; h/Margaret (Boyd) Brownsville Anglican Church NSW

Thanks gibbo.

Case closed for now.

When it gets easier to get to NSW Archives I'll start looking at all the convicts in my tree in detail.
