*   Was your William MARSHALL (ordinarily) of the Roman Catholic faith ??

His father was "18 years caretaker and member of the Epping Presbyterian Church". From memory other family members were also Presbyterian. Doesn't necessarily mean that William was though.

Yes, I'm aware that Sydney's occupation involved the Presbyterian church, but that was not what I was asking. 
Will await further information from craigbarwick01.

Hi craigbarwick01

Have to say that the additional info which minniehaha has provided at Reply # 19, looks very promising ... especially age-wise and "last from Australia".   ;)

That particular William MARSHALL appears on the following electoral rolls :

Auckland West
1919 and 1922
MARSHALL - William - Sacred Heart College - occ:  Labourer


1925 and 1928
MARSHALL - William - Sacred Heart College, Richmond Road, -  farm hand


Leslie BARWICK settled in Otago.   He appeared on Dunedin Central rolls following his marriage in 1904.   William MARSHALL (farm hand/labourer) doesn't appear to have been in same location (Otago).   
Difficult (time consuming) to trace their arrival in NZ from AUS (if in fact a record does exist) ... but you can check further at FamilySearch > NZ Passenger Lists.

No sign of Probate record in NZ or Tasmania for this William MARSHALL (d. 1928).

*   Was your William MARSHALL (ordinarily) of the Roman Catholic faith ??

*   Have you searched say, death notices in AUS newspapers for William's extended family .... which might include mention of him ?

*   You didn't say whether you had death cert for his mother Helen, and if that recorded her surviving issue (or listed her children's details in any way)   ???

The first William died as an infant, yes there are two unnamed births 1879 and 1882; both recorded as male. The 1882 birth was actually a girl named Cora and by other records that provide that conclusion, the previous thread was 9 years ago and I was hoping a fresh look may have found some new information

In looking over several of the 70-odd trees (@ ancestry) for this Sydney & Helen MARSHALL family, there are some inconsistencies, (to be expected), in information.

Hi, I was hoping for some help locating possible information on William Marshall who was born in Campbelltown Tasmania 23 March 1879, family stories tell that he moved to New Zealand.
Cheers
Craig

I can see your tree at that site, and the child Cora Blanch(e) MARSHALL is attributed the (27 January) 1882 birthdate.   

*   What are the "other conclusions" you mention that confirm that birthdate ?

And it's odd that the father Sydney should have registered the birth of an unnamed male child (rather than a female child) one month after it's birth on 28 February 1882.   Or did the registrar make an error about the sex of the child ??

It's also odd that in other trees (@ancestry and elsewhere), that Cora Blanche BARWICK (nee MARSHALL) is shown as having died at Hobart, in 1957, aged 78 years (bc 1879) ???  *  Is her age at death actually confirmed in some other record ??

*   What information do you have that Cora was born 1882 rather than 1879 ?

*   I'm not terribly familiar with TAS death certificates, but do the certs after 1914, show the number of children of a deceased person ?     
Helen M. MARSHALL (the mother) is said to have died in 1922, do you (or fellow MARSHALL researchers)  have her death certificate - or a funeral/death notice, which names her children ??

*   From the "family stories" you talk about, what evidence do you have that William lived to an age where he might have taken himself off to live in New Zealand ??

There are many "William MARSHALL's" who have lived in NZ though may not have actually died here (thereby leaving possibly some record).    It's "needle in haystack" stuff searching if we don't have additional information from you.   ;)

for craigbarwick01 ...

Have searched through burials for the Southland district ... nothing found for a William MARSHALL (which might be a match re: approximate year of birth).

The OGILVIES (William and Susan - both died 1918) are buried at the Woodlands Cemetery (Southland) as are some of their children.    No MARSHALL or William MARSHALL in this localitry either.
