Charles QUINN who marries 1884 is a mariner, and does not sign his name.

Charles QUINN who marries 1855 is a  post messenger and signs his name.

Do you have any more information about Charles and Catherine?

The family of Charles QUIN/QUINN and Selina MARTIN stayed around the Swansea area so this is probably his death:

There is a death for Selina QUINN in 1914 at Fingal but you would need to purchase the death certificate to see if it is her.

Which couple are you actually interested in?

I know very little on Charles Quinn the only things I know of him is he was roughly born around 1833 and a mariner. Catherine was born in saint Helena around 1820  when she was a young age her mother was selected to be sent to a remote island Tristan da cunha where catherine met her first husband James Lind she had seven children on the island after James died in 1850 catherine  and all seven child was soon picked up by a passing ship whose captain felt sorry for them they soon arrived to vdl most children was placed in a orphan school. Catherine married charles quinn as catherine linn a widow thats all i know

Oh and the witness Clara Ferdinand on their marriage is Catherine's youngest daughter

Given the variations in the spelling of the family name ...LINN...LIND... etc, it would be useful to have the names and ages of the seven children, the better to locate mother Catherine.

I had located Clara (born St Helena), wife of Emanuel FERDINAND, d. 1888 TAS......witness to marriage of Catherine, 1884.

How did Catherine support her large family between death of husband, and 1884 when she married Charles QUINN.

Three of the children here, Agnes, Clara, and James:

They apparently arrived on the Bengal and daughter Lucinda married Robert JAMES in 1854:

There are only six children here but eight passengers.  Was there a baby perhaps?
  Clara is the missing one.

Lucinda lind/linn/lynn was old enough to work when they arrived all the rest as placed in the Queens orphan school their names were Margaret, David, James, Agnes and Clara and the other one was a boy I think. Lucinda married a Robert James. Margaret married Jesse Roberts.
Agnes married solom Williams and Clara married  Thomas Jones and Emmanuel Ferdinand. James became a sailor and the others I haven't been able to located.... As for Catherine supporting them after they arrived I don't think she did as Clara was in her sisters care for a while  all girls married very young and one of them Margaret was known as black Maggie and apparently worked on the town

There's a Charles Quinn age 44 in 1876 (very close to DoB per the marriage record) who travels Hobart to Sydney on the Fairy Rock

If this is the right Charles then Catherine might be found in one of Joyce Purtscher's works.

Quick update - this led to the right place but the wrong year. I'll try to track down the correct one. The entries had no more details than the Purtscher book states, but if I find it, I'll get a pic of the original page for you. It was really interesting to view an original document  :)
