Annie M Halloran was a witness to the marriage so could the NSW index have been a transcribing error?? Or her mother remarried??

Thanks gibbo.

Baptism has mother as Elizabeth. P P W could call herself Halloran if her mother remarried but no marriage in NSW index 1830 - 1851 for Elizabeth.

I have no idea how the witness fits in.

Death WARD ELIZABETH 6343/1868 WILLIAM S DIED RICHMOND RICHMOND * 8 Feb

The tree has her parents as James and Ann. ??


Mother didn't remarry so the only other way is to marry a Halloran but 1851 marriage has her as a spinster.

According to the link you posted previously. I can't prove much of it at all but if correct it would explain why so many names so maybe Halloran was another defacto relationship.

Dunno gibbo.

How many ways can P P Ward be a spinster and marry as Halloran? Her mother remarries before 1851 - not found. Any other way?

Elizabeth dies as Ward with an error ? for her father's name.

If P P W was not a spinster then she married a Halloran before 1851 - not found.

Phillis Priscella Ward
Christening: 3 Apr 1831
