Thanks Judith,

I had the first three, but Pearson's was new to me.  Lots of information in there.

Cheers,
Alison  ;D

Hi
Mary Martha Helen Quarrell was my grandmother.
She was an adopted child in the Quarrell family.
This adoption was always known but the true parents are not known.
Mary married George Hawthorne Wells

Emily Butters birth is recorded as Chaston as her mother was not married to Butters at the time.  It is also mis-transcribed.

Australian Birth Index 1788-1922.
Emily Chuston (should be Chaston) Abt 1862
Birthplace: Cays, Vic (should be Daylesford, Vic)
Father: Chuston (in fact was Butters)
Mother: Mary Chuston
Reg: 14086

Mary Martha Helen Quarrell was raised as the first child of Emily Butters and Alfred James Quarrell. Family stories suggested she may have been an adopted child in this family.
Recent DNA match analysis supports the fact that her biological mother was Emily Butters, but Alfred James Quarrell could not be her biological father.  Her biological father is likely to be a member of the Iles/Johnson family of Creswick.

You appear to have taken your information from Ancestry indexes.

This is from my resource which is the same as the online Vic bdm's.  The information was transcribed from the registers and to be fair some of the writing is almost illegible.  It appears Emily was illegitimate.

Birth
CHUSTON Emily
Father Not recorded  Mother Mary CHUSTON
At Daylesford  1862  Reg#14086

You can also check the Vic BDM's yourself.

Thank you for your clarification of the differences in records. We actually have the original birth record, but I do not wish to share that information in this forum, as the registry record is sufficient.  You are correct Emily was born out of wedlock.
