Hi
It will help us a lot if you can give us a few more details, where and when was Mary born, do you know anything at all about her parents place of birth, dates etc. Do you have Maary's marriage certificate, it should give her parents names, fathers occupation, mothers maiden name.

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.

Hi
You say that you have the parents names, how did you get them, do you have her death certificate, if so, they are not always accurate, the marriage certificate is usually a more reliable document.

I agree about the need to see documentary evidence and will have to look for these in the UK.  I am in Australia.

Her parents names along with other useful information will be on her marriage certificate in my reply #3 above.

You can purchase & download immediately a copy of the certificate for $17.50 from the VIC BDM:
