Can you please scan the marriage certificate, MCCARTHY - EDWARDS, 1877, so that we can see all the information.

I think you have said that Mary had been in NZ for four months before the marriage, and Edward for...several years?

Can you please confirm this, and give your source.

How did Mary, with small children, get to NZ, and marry so soon after arrival.......why did Mary go to NZ ........relative there?

Hello Wivenhoe, Yes these are all the questions i have too. I dont know of any relations in NZ for Mary, as she came with 2 small kids guess she was on the lookout for a husband quickly!

The source of when they came etc was in the Intentions to Marry records prior to marriage.

I know you asked me to upload the cert but i am having too much trouble trying to get the size right.
The only details on it are both names and ages although hers says FULL and she is a widow (untrue) no actual marriage in Australia! Married in Hokitika 30th Jan 1877 and name written for marriage is EDWARD but he seems to have signed his name Edwin! He was a butcher.

In Aug 2005 spades provided the details on the Intention to Marry, which says Mary was in residence 4 years, and Edwin for 4 months.
