Hi
There is an online tree which gives parents for them but it is a little confusing, there seems to be conflicting information about where people were born and arrival dates ???. It certainly would be better to go straight to the source, the marriage certificate, then you should be able to narrow down the births for them.

Mary Fahey was born in 1858 (possibly Australia) and married George Cornelius Beilby in 1881 in Australia.  I have no information on Mary's her parents other than their names.   

She was born Lancashire, England according to the marriage index.

As you have the parents' names could you please post them and we could possibly find them on a census.

Hi Ros

I think the problem is that there is conflicting information, trees on Ancestry with those parents all have Mary as born in Australia whereas according to the marriage index supplied by ~MERLIN~ Mary was born in Lancashire. Gigi4 hasn't indicated the source of the parents names but if its the Ancestry trees then the marriage certificate would be helpful in that it would confirm parents names.

The Ancestry trees also give Mary's place of birth, and her father's as NSW, also her parent's marriage. There are births in NSW for James and Eliza/Elizabeth Fahey, including Mary born 1858, this still may not be the same family. There is a James Fahey who dies in NSW in 1885, but whether it is they same man is unsure, his wife Eliza died in 1892 NSW.

Get the marriage certificate. :)

Mary BEILBY (FAHEY) appears to have remarried or partnered a Mr D JENKINS before WWI.

If you read two of the son's WWI files who were born to George & Mary you will see her name as Mary JENKINS living in Richmond VIC 1815 & step-father D JENKINS living in SA 1918.

I'm a bit pressed for time at the moment so I can't go any further, but perhaps one of the other RCer's will help until I can return  :)

The marriage certificate for Mary Fahey and George Cornelius Beilby states Mary's parents as being JOHN FAHEY and MARGARET COMRAY (could be Comroy, Camray, it's difficult to read).  It confirms that Mary was born in Lancashire England and that James Fahey and Elizabeth Graham were NOT HER PARENTS.

I am looking for the family history of this family.  Their daughter Mary Fahey was my great grandmother.
