Looking for Lydia's birth and marriage of her parents. There are Kemp births in early NSW but parents are Richard & Susannah. ??

Is Elizabeth an error on death reg? No birth reg for a Lydia Kemp abt 1822 in NSW index.

Death ??
10 Apr 1934 • Glebe, New South Wales, Australia

NSW Death 8307/1934 JOHNSTON JOHN - JOHN 81 YRS GLOBE - GLEBE * 10 Apr

Globe?? That location is usually place of death. The last column with 'Glebe' is District of Registration

NSW Death 9969/1925 JOHNSTON JOHN - JOHN - SYDNEY * 28 Aug

1930 & 1933 NSW Electoral Roll - West Sydney - Glebe
JOHNSTON Rachel, 52 Glebe street, home duties

There is no John Johnston at that address in 1930 or 1933.

I now have the images to transcribe. The second is a duplicate. RC, age 40, abode = Sussex St, Sydney, buried 21 June 1853.

Not old enough to be Lydia's mother.
