Body found in Middle Harbour.  William Joseph CAMPBELL, of Old South Head Road, Woollahra.    I note thereís no apparent NSW BDM registration for this death.  Perhaps the coroner issued a burial order and there was no follow up for the civil registration.

Oops,  I forgot to include the following .... perhaps just a co-incidence as CAMPBELL is a very popular surname.

Thomas CAMPBELL, 578 Old South Head Road, WOOLLAHRA

There is this NZ marriage which may well be the couple below.

1906/2655
CAMPBELL William John   
TIKEY  Jeannie

Electoral Roll
1911, 1914, 1919, Auckland/Manakau
CAMPBELL  Jeannie The Drive, Epsom  Married
CAMPBELL William  The Drive, Epsom Motorman

You would need a print out of Wm's death registration to take the research further.  May simply be a co-incidence of names and occupations.

Also I found newspaper reports of a William Campbell, a tram conductor, who was killed in NZ, but the newspaper reports were very clear on the names of his parents, which were very different and that he came from the UK, so I gave up my theory of bigamy.

Could you please post the link to the news article with the details.   I've read all I can find on NZ Papers Past but cannot find the article you mention.  I can only find the mention of a J HUNTER, in the funeral notice.   Probably my age :P  More curious that anything else.

Please find attached a very disordered collection of articles that I grabbed at the time.  Maybe a different set of eyes might see something I did not see.  I am sorry but I had to break my original document down to little ones to keep under the roots chat file size.
I am pretty sure I ordered the marriage cert or death of this William Campbell and the parentage was clearly stated and not my William.
I will look at all the info you have posted today in detail, but just wanted to make sure that anyone who is 'on the case' can continue their momentum with this info I had previously found.
I am very grateful to you all - please stay on the case - I know myself that I get on a roll and it really bugs me when I can't quite unlock the mystery for someone.  I do appreciate the extra sets of ideas and also, different people are familiar with different source documents.  He has to be out there somewhere........
