Hi,

I am sure that Jen will not misunderstand when I write ... How sure are you that John MURRAY was still with Margaret for all three babies...
Looking for a death record for John Murray who married Margaret Jennings on 8th June, 1837 in Maitland NSW.  Have located 3 children born to this couple, Anne Jane 1842, Mary 1849 and John A, 1851.  Family records indicate that John was a former soldier possibly from the 3rd Regiment of Foot (Buffs).

It may be sensible to look earlier for the burial of John... 

The Australian Joint Copying Project would likely include payroll and musters for the Buffs.  Likely held at NLA Canberra and Mitchell Library, Sydney.

I am not home at present, but if you do a search at RChat I am sure you will find posts where I mention the project - I wish they would consider digitising and uploading the reels...  ::)

Volume 37a for the NSW BDM Early Church Records ... Maitland ... errr .... possibly findable within C of E and Christ Church Cathedral (Newcastle Diocese), and these are online, no charge images ... see RChat's NSW resources board, or search at RChat for err ... where I have mentioned that  ;D
(Volumes 1 to 44 are C of E) - if John MURRAY was buried C of E Maitland or anywhere within Newcastle Diocese, you should find burial in those images,  same with baptisms and with marriages  ;D

Fingers crossed, sorry I cannot be part of the searching through at the moment.  :-X

Hi JM,   That thought had also crossed my mind  ;D  Will check earlier dates for the
            death of John Murray.

            However, I should mention at this point that Frederick Wherritt was previously
            married with a child in England before he came to Australia in 1841.  His wife and
            child were both alone on the 1841 census.  It appears that the marriage may have
            been invalid even if John Murray was deceased by 1852.

            Thankyou for your suggestions re the Australian joint copying project and Christ Church
            Cathedral records, I will work through those with fingers crossed ;D :D

Regards,
Jen.
