hi there, we knew very little about Mary/Robert, but did have a photo of the grave in Wolombi, still have the puzzle of why her sister called herself Mary--had a child called Elizabeth, went on to bring up her sister's children , then married Cutler late in life
Dont know any more about the Australian relatives, so any info would be great,as Mary/Charlotte was my gt.gt.grandmother
many thanks Marton

Thank you very much Steve, we do know the two sisters , Charlotte and Mary, and only recently had more info about Mary  who went to Australia,still have the conundrum about Charlotte and her children turning up in Tring, but calling herself Mary---I suspect this is one we will never know the answer to,and also about her brief marriage to Cutler Beckett
Thank you all for your help
regards Marton

I'm not so sure that Charlotte Saw, morphed into Mary Priest.

There was the other Mary Saw, that was baptised to John Saw & Martha Monday 1813, @ Ashendon........it could be her, not Charlotte.

Anyway, I'll leave you too it. ;D

 Dear Marton,
                    have sent info on John & Mary Allen of their family , along with her death certificate & photos to your daughter via ancestry, so no doubt you will get it.

Went to Wollombi today and have photographed for you Mary's burial place, the church that her children were baptised at and the font. Sending onto Anne.

How very kind of you, thank you
Hope there weren't too many snakes-it's 5 degrees here and bitterly cold
