Joseph?

Last three are deceased.)
            *  ?!! August 1886


Hmmmm - not at all sure sure, but best I can do.     Or to something on the other side of the page not in the snip. 
The list of family is usually on the far right column of a double page if your entries are like ours. 
And before that columns are usually 'where married, to whom, for how long, and how long in the colony. This Info a bit tricky if they don't know who he was!  ;)

I think if it could be scanned at a higher resolution, it could be easier to see.

You are so right AC!!   ;)      I tried enlarging but it just pixilated.

Also, showing right hand page of this entry would also be a great help!  ;)

Hi,
The death occurred in Australia.  Durham Lead was close to the Ballarat goldfields in the State of Victoria.

Good - so that means the columns on the right hand side will be as I said - so we need to see that side too please   ;)  Thought the record looked familiar but thought NZ might have the same look about them . . . both being colonies and all!

 - preferably with a better scan.   ;) ;)

The handwriting i wished to see if it could be deciphered is on the death cert thought to be for a Maurice Joseph Morton.
My great g'mother Mary nee McCarthy was in a defacto with this man and had two sons to him (but used her maiden name) or at least one we are sure of.
Mary came to NZ with Maurice George Morton (son) I dont know when but she ended up in Hokitika married a Edward Waters Hall in 1877.
I have been unable to prove where her second son Albert Joseph Morton was born, about 1872 from the date on his death cert in NZ.
I was interested in the writing on the cert as i thought it said New Zealand but maybe not. I think it relates to the two wives Morton did marry and his children.
Morton drowned in 1886 and was identified by clothing worn at time he disappeared.
I have never found any birth cert for Edward Hall born Devon about 1850  according to Marriage 1877 details nor any death for him in NZ.

Thanks for your help .

We still might be able to decipher it is you could give ua a bigger scan  300dpi maybe.   - and the right hand page as that will provide much of the info from which to judge what they are correcting.    ;) ;)
