Hello,

NSW Birth 33384/1896 LEGGO LOUISA M - WILLIAM C - FANNY - PADDINGTON


Looking for the marriage of William to Fanny.

I have nothing else to work with so far. Don't know if C= Charles or not or if Fanny might be Frances in other records. Don't know if Australia or elsewhere.

Dave

Unless someone asks I'm not going back to Northampton to search.

It's daughter Louisa May who is in my tree by her marriage, but not a direct line branch.

Just making sure I have her parents marriage and deaths, and burials.
 
Well pruned at just under 5000. :)

Looking for this birth and marriage thanks Geoff in Victoria.

Thanks Geoff.

Would be this baptism:

V18421728 47/1842 COX ISABELLA FRANCIS J MARGARET

Vol 47 Reel 5017 + 27-end (see note 10) Bap 1834-1844 Presbyterian

10. There are over 5000 baptismal entries in Vol. 47. The volume is in poor physical condition thus making many of the entries difficult both to locate and to read. There appears to be no register entries Nos. 1-26 - the Registry's entry numbers commencing at No. 27.


Looks the only one but I have no parents to confirm:

Qld. Death 1893/C03958 Clewett Isabella Jane - Cox -
 
Thanks. That marriage looks the right one. Don't know yet where and when James died.

Qld. marriage 16 Sep 1869/C0486 Clewett Felix - Peters Isabella Jane


An ancestor: Charles Friggens Leggo :)
