probably reinventing the wheel here, but I need a bit of help.
I do lookups for forum members and often have several requests at once to do, How do I reply to each person individually,

Australia / James Clarke & Sarah Burgess marriage 1857
« on: Thursday 28 May 20 12:43 BST (UK)  »
Hi all
I am in need of the parents names & birth/baptism of James Clarke.
James Clarke, born c 1823 Sydney, was married to Sarah (Garnet) Burgess on 22 June 1857 at Marulan NSW (reg Goulburn 1857/1770.)
James & Sarah lived in Charleyong/Braidwood.
James died in Nowra in 1905 & Sarah named his father as James, occupation shopkeeper.
I have not found a birth for him, so before I send for a transcription of the marriage, does anyone have access to this marriage record & so supply his parents names.

Wiltshire / Charles Bishop 1806 - 1876
« on: Monday 30 March 20 12:40 BST (UK)  »
When Charles Bishop arrived in New South Wales on the convict ship Surry in November 1831, he was aged 26, a native of Wiltshire, married with 1 son & 1 daughter.
He was sentenced to death, commuted to 7 years, for stealing a lamb on on 28 May 1830 at Kingswood Wiltshire.
after two further marriages but with no children, he died in the Shoalhaven on 13 November 1876 aged 70.parents not stated.
I cannot find a birth or the first marriage for him, can anyone please help.

If anyone can help with even a word or two from this headstone we will be very grateful.
We are cataloguing an old cemetery & have only this one headstone (4 lines of verse) left to decipher.
we have so far:
In Memory Of/ Maude Mary Brown/ aged 8 years/ who died at Parma Shoalhaven/ on the 31st Aug 1876.
Of the next four lines of verse we think the last word line 3  may be 'earth' last word line 4 could be 'mourn'

The family was presbyterian.

Theresa Agnes Elliott married Gregory Thomas Byrne on 6th November 1871 in Maryborough Victoria.
If anyone has the marriage certificate  & can help me with her parents names I'd be ever so happy.
I do not believe she was the daughter of Bridget Nihil, & need this to progress.
Thanks in advance
