Thomas states he was born 1903 Perth and this is the only birth I can find.  Nothing for COWAN.

FITZGERALD    Thomas Joseph       
Father Michael    Mother Johannah Catherine Lanigan     
District Mount Mary    Reg#6263    1903

Probably not him.

There are some references to Marion FITZGERALD-COWAN in social announcements in W.A

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article40739663 and http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article83002545

adding : I think she married in 1946 as Marion E.F. COWAN.   (maybe the BDM didn't handle hyphenated names too well)

Thank you all for searching for me and finding so much Information. :D :D

I do not have a copy of Henry Aubrey's death certificate or had a reply from the Lady who asked me if I could find more information. :(

She did write saying that in 1889 Henry and Jane Aubrey had twin daughters Margaret and Louisa.

As you say I believe that Jane was much younger than Henry; maybe his second wife? :-\

I know that Dudley Seaward Seaton was the son of Leonard George Snook and Dorothy G J Sturman. Leonard George Snook having jumped ship sometime between 1881 and 1891 and in Australia changed his name to Seaton. His marriage in 1895 giving his name as Seaton.

Mufffin as there are no marriage or birth registrations the person who compiled the family tree [and possibly copied on by others] obviously had information that is simply not available elsewhere.  Henry's death certificate should include the following info detailed in WA
http://www.jaunay.com/bdm.html

The only information I transcribed from the tree is in reply#6.  The rest I researched myself.

Do you need further assistance and if so, what with?

Contact with the local family history group  may yield more information.

SEATON Dudley S   
OLSEN Anna M
District Murchison Reg#38 1939 

In my tree I have Cue, Western Australia, Australia as the place of marriage for them. Are Cue and Murchison not far from each other?

Also I have not found any children for their marriage yet.

The marriage was registered in the Registration District of Murchison.  Use google....one of my best research tools ;)

You won't find any births to this couple as the birth index in WA only extends to 1932.
