Hi so after a year of more research i have find that john narrow is john naral
From the 1899 Guildford police occurrence book which supports the death cert.
his father is Narrall and his mother is Jigat this information comes from Fanny Balbuk one of the informants in Daisy Bates anthropology work in 1904 onwards

:)

do you have the 1883 marriage ... and or the 1899 death .... I doubt there's much to be gleaned from either, so I am not suggesting you purchase these, but if you have copies ... what info is available from these

JM
Yes. I have the 1883 marriage and the burial record of Thomas Bland in 1885. I have PM'd you.

In the same way that  words like 'bastard' or 'illegitimate birth' are no longer words used everyday at the dinnertable they are words we, as family history buffs, clearly undertand are descriptors that help in the search for our ancestors.

JM

I was referring to your own example, above. And I used the term 'you' in a general sense, not meaning you specifically. (Of course in hindsight I should have said 'born out of wedlock' or 'born before marriage' would be said today rather than illegitimate or bastard.)

As long as terms are used 'in a genealogical context' and with no intent to offend, apparently it doesn't matter. I was merely building on your example.

In any case, since this thread has been marked as completed by the OP, perhaps it can be moved now.

This post has undergone modification since its initial posting.  I had read it firstly prior to the modifications. 

I continue to understand that the use of 'you' in the two instances  I have cited (both in the one sentence) are directed to me and are not referring to anyone else.

.... As you mentioned, you would suggest someone was illegitimate, not say they were a bastard child!
.....
 

Would I ?  I doubt it.   I doubt that I have ever referred to any individual person as illegitimate at any time in my life, not even in my many decades of family history.  I am astounded that you have made that comment about me,  you have never met me.

Well that is how you have read it but it wasn't my intent. Apologies for the poor phrasing.
