NSW Marriage 8836/1902 WILLIAMS CHARLES T - WOOLLETT ISABELLA S - BOMBALA * 12 Nov 1902

NSW Death 31412/1948 WILLIAMS CHARLES THOMAS - JOHN - LAVINA - MORUYA * 27 Oct 1948

NSW Death 32953/1963 WILLIAMS ISABELLA SARAH - THOMAS - ISABELLA - EDEN * 17 Dec 1963

I don't know yet if parents as listed on those death reg are correct or not.

Looking for 2 marriages and 4 deaths, thanks.
 
Thomas Woollett married Isabella Smith 1868 Coomb NSW

Birth Isabella Sarah Woollett born 1873 Cooma NSW parents Thomas and Isabella.

I found the above and then found a tree which has both Thomas and Isabella born in Tasmania, Thomas in 1840 and Isabella in 1847

The same tree has the parents of Charles Thomas Williams as Clara Lavinia Plumb born Brighton, Sussex 1847. I have found the baptism, parents Thomas William and Mary. Father was Charles John Williams born Kent 1841. There is a baptism for a Charles John Williams in Bridge, Kent 1841 parents Thomas and Charlotte.

Clara died 1937 in Bega NSW and Charls John died 1904 in Eden NSW. I can find Clara's death aged 90, but not that of Charles John.
 
Thanks emeltee.

That will get me started.

The only marriage I can find with surnames Plumb and Merison is Thomas William Plumb and Mary Merison which took place 3 March 1840 in Stepney.

The following Plumb children with mmn Merison are on the GRO Index
Mary Ann 1840 Shoreditch
Rebecca Maria 1844 Islington died 1844 Islington
Emily Maria Bellamy 1846 Islington died 1846 Islington
Emma Rebbecca Dyson 1846 Islington died 1846 Islington
Clara Liven 1847 Brighton
William Thomas 1850 Hackney died 1850 Hackney
George Albert 1851 Wandsworth

In the 1851 Census John Bellamy Plumb was born 1818 in Brigstock, Northamptonshire. I can find a John Bellamy Plumb born 1809 in Brigstock to a John and Sarah Plumb. They also had a son William Thomas born 1818. So is it John Bellamy Plumb as stated in the 1851 Census or is it William Thomas pretending to be his brother? Over to you!
 
Thanks emeltee.

Not sure how I will word it in my tree.

The age in 1851 points to it being William.
 
John Plumb married Jane Catherine Finch 1830 in Hackney. John, Jane and family appear in every Census from 1841 to 1881 and in each one he is born 1809, a Baker from Brogstock, Northants. Therefore the John Bellamy born 1818 in the 1851 Census surely has to be William Thomas /Thomas William
 
Thanks emeltee.

ref emeltee’s post #13
Therefore the John Bellamy born 1818 in the 1851 Census surely has to be William Thomas /Thomas William

William Thomas Plumb rather than John Belarry Plumb
The original data on the record is incorrect. for 1851 census
It appears that William Thomas / Thomas William Plumb, was using his brother's name (John Bellamy Plumb). William Thomas Plumb was baptised in Brigstock, Northamptonshire 5th Oct 1818, which ties in with this census and John Bellamy Plumb was baptised on 10th Aug 1809 (mis-transcribed as plain John Bellamy, but parents shown as John and Sarah Plumb). John Bellamy Plumb can be found in the 1851 census at 13 Mint Street, Southwark St George with wife Jane and children Charles, Mary and Sarah.
