NSW Marriage V18411124 76/1841 WEST WILLIAM - WEST MARGARET - JI= Presbyterian Bathurst

I, K. D. Smythe, of Bathurst, Minr. of St. Stephen's, do hereby certify that Wm. West, Bachelor, residing at Macquarie Plains, and Margaret West, Spinster, of same place, joined together in Wedlock, by me, on the Second day of November 1841. [signed] K. D. Smythe Minr.

Baptisms at Bathurst to William WEST & Margaret WEST
William c. 28 May 1848
Robert c. 28 Apr 1850
Andrew c. 30 May 1852

This is probably not the right one being a seaman.

Thanks Val.


No burial in index in 1849 for Thomas West. Even if the burial was there the NSW burials have no parents so can't show John and Thomas as brothers or not so.
