Hi Debra, I have a copy of everything but the will and of course the birth records.  The marriage certificate was very disappointing as it had no information whatsoever except names place date and witnesses.  It did help with linking Mary to the Clark family.  I only found the details for Roberts father from the asylum records and his death certificate.   :(

You need to see the church registers as that information will be recorded there and just not passed on to the registry.  It is important that you know who he named as his mother.

Thanks Debra, I probably need to explore roots chat a bit better.  You have given me some hope.  I am trying to find an email address for the Muswellbrook local and Family Historical Society and I am not having much luck.  It appears not a lot of the parish registers are online sob.

Were they married by a C of E minister?  If so Muswellbrook was in the Diocese of Newcastle and there is a list here of the libraries etc which hold the microfilm of the registers, including the Muswellbrook library.

Muswellbrook library email address is here under 'Branches' on the right hand side.  They may look it up for you, it doesn't hurt to ask.

Newcastle FHS:

Hi mcfrankel - I've ordered Charles Butler's will and I should have it in (up to) 14 days (thanks rosie99 for the link). Let's see what it says when it arrives. Have you been able to follow up Dundee's suggestion of contacting Muswellbrook's library or Newcastle FHS? If not I'll give them a call/email (I just didn't want to double up on any work already done).

That's good I tried to order the will and had something go wrong with the payment....I did get a copy of the marriage entry.....I can send a copy to you if you have an email address.  I will let you have a look at the information before discussing anything.  I think Robert was being funny.

Thanks mcfrankel - just checking it's ok to post email addresses on rootschat.com without incurring the wrath of (very helpful) moderators, yes? :-)
