I'm afraid the only way that you are likely to get the information from the birth and marriage certificate is to buy them from the GRO. At the moment you can get them online for 6 rather than the paper ones for 9.25.

Hi again, why have you got the parentage of Rachel Newing and not Edward Thomas Thomas Edward, a marriage certificate is a must for all, not just for you?

He always referred to himself as Thomas but was actually named  Edward Thomas. That must have been because his father was always called Edward. I needed to confirm that his mother was Sarah Lawrence and i now know that they were married in 1837. I have found records for the birth of all of their children except Henry / Harry. Some were born in SA and some in Victoria. I think that may be Henry was born whilst they were journeying between the two states.
