Thanks Geoff.

I'll guess 23 June based on parents. :biggrin: Wrong one.

Seems we have one from England, Scotland and Ireland.

Certainly something wrong, they must have been very young to marry in 1841 :rolleyes:

Labourer - Perthshire is not England. Death reg might be wrong.

Don't think we will have much luck even if parents are James & Ellen.

Not sure of age and can't rely on death reg with 'born England' either.

I have no occupation. Can't find anything else in newspapers.

Age is sorted:

The Telegraph (Brisbane, Qld. : 1872 - 1947) - Wednesday 1 November 1893 p.4
Deaths.
SMITH.-On October 28, at his Residence, Thorn-
bury street, Spring Hill, Brisbane, after a
long illness, William Smith, aged 63 years.
