;)  (I think this is the time in UK when RC goes on hold for a while while they update everything.)

JM - I do that so I can read the post and make the transcriptions without running back and forward!   ;)

Fair enough, but umm.... err .... could you please mention when you modify your post to add your transcription, that you are modifying the post....  I have seen some RChatters in hot water/severely criticised and then offended etc ...  over similar significant modifications because they ummm... modified without making any mention...  ::)

Father is John MORTON and mother's surname on Vic BDM index is GARENS.  I think I would agree with that and they can probably read the original better than we can read a copy.

The two gazette snips posted in reply 13 and 14 are not for the same drowning.

Thanks everyone for all your help and advice on this subject.
My Mary never married Morton so i dont need to proceed any further with this.

She married as Mary McCarthy (maiden) in NZ to Edward Hall although always known as Morton.

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.

According to Mary, Albert was born 30 May 1872.

All you very clever people, thanks so much.

Any of you care to help me locate a death for Edward Waters HALL who Mary married in Hokitika 1877.
Never found a death notice for him and only know he was born in Devon and approx age from his marriage cert?
