Thanks Geoff.

This is not an easy family to trace and not just because of the variations of the name.

That death is after this marriage:

1863/B0488 Defraine Emma - Slaughter Alfred

The Courier (Brisbane, Qld. : 1861-1864) - Saturday 28 March 1863 p.2
MARRIED.
March 13, at Brisbane, by the Rev. J. H. Fletcher, Wesleyan Minister, Alfred Slaughter, senior, to Emma, eldest daughter of Mr. Samuel Thompson, of Luton, Bedfordshire.

William Defraine b. 9 Jul 1846 c. 20 Sep 1846 The Chapel-Wesleyan, Luton, Bedford, England
William Thomas & Emma

His 2nd

This is the first:

Marriage 11 Oct 1821 by Banns St. Mary's Aylesbury
William DE FRAINE, Bachelor otp
Ann(x)CHESTER, Spinster otp
Witnesses: Thos De Fraine & Ann Warr.
 
Re the William who died in Queensland in 1863, I'm stuck for the moment.


William de FRAINE, b. Abt. 1828, Aylesbury, Bucks - Thomas & Rebecca - d. ?


I can't find a baptism for a William, son of William & Marian or a marriage for a William to a Marian.

Please be aware, there are 11 variations of DeFraine in Aylesbury PR's. :D

That is the only other William I can account for. The one who died in Qld. in 1863 is a real mystery. I can't see how it can be Emma's spouse if she remarried before he died.

I have not seen a William married to a Marian in any tree so far with a son William.
