Thanks gibbo.

I can only find the marriage to Bridget S.

Another family is in Berrima so they can be ruled out.

The question is - do we have three or four families??

Is Raymond the last for Bridget or did they drop the Bridget for the following two births in Liverpool?

Or do we have a different family from 1880 onwards - two in Liverpool and two in Leichhardt??

Or only two families - one in Berrima and the other in Liverpool then Leichhardt with change of name in birth reg for mother?

Thanks gibbo.

Address does not help re Ethel so may have to start tracing other children.

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - LEICHHARDT - LEICHHARDT POLLING-PLACE
JONES William Sidney, Daniel-street, blacksmith
JONES Ethel May, Daniel-street, domestic duties
JONES Joseph, Daniel-street, wireworker
 
Looks like it gibbo.

NSW Birth McWILLIAMS JOHN 11501/1870 JOHN - BRIDGET SUSANNAH - LIVERPOOL

Ignoring the births in Berrima there is no overlap.

I'll be back in abt 20 min.

??
NSW Death McWILLIAMS JOHN 2350/1909 JOHN - BRIDGET - MOSS VALE

That could be the death of the 1870 Liverpool one or the 1871 Berrima one, next post.

10x marriages in NSW index before 1865 for a John Jones to an Elizabeth.

RC Manly - that date is the burial date.
William Sydney JONES BIRTH: ----- DEATH: 1933-08-19 ? BURIAL: ----- SITES: CTH-R-370

I have nothing yet on William's parents. I can't find a tree.

No burials in RC Manly for a John or Elizabeth Jones.
