I might add a further note as well.

Narellan and Pitt Town both strong commercial centres even in those days were joined by a major road!

The Northern Road!

just joining dots ::)

It is possible that there may be some elusive blanks on perhaps a NSW marriage cert where the marriage ceremony was conducted before about 1895.   Do not panic, do not let confusion overtake the research.   The information is usually findable, just that NSW BDM did not get supplied with all the info the clergy recorded.

If you have some blanks on the documents, just post the info that you already have, and I will try to give you some sensible advice as to overcoming these blanks.

Yes, spot on Neil  :) 

Cheers,  JM

John WRIGHT & Sarah HUGGINS have been researched very well by their descendants including copies of original documents.

They are also documented in personal resources I own - Joseph WRIGHT (John's father) arrived on the First Fleet & married Eleanor GOTT who arrived on the Second Fleet.

John WRIGHT was the son of the above convicts. Sarah HUGGINS father was a also transported convict.
Sarah along with her mother & siblings followed their convict father to NSW.

It was their son John WRIGHT who was born 28 May, 1831 & baptised 31 Jan, 1833 Church of England, Pitt Town. He married Rhoda PRESLAND. John & Rhoda WRIGHT both died in 1902 & are buried at Rookwood.

Agh, well found Merlin,

so that eliminates one possible set of parents then.

http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/99601632   (mentions a daughter aged 94 living in Newcastle at that time)
Sorry  :(no known siblings of Jack. Daughter is Louisa Wright.

So, this daughter Louisa was supposedly born in 1842  ???   And Jack in 1831   :-\

Can you give us the details for Louisa's birth/marriage/death please?

I can find a NSW birth for a Louisa WRIGHT, with parents as James and Emma.  However, it is from 1864.  That lass had a middle name, likely "S" initial on the index.    I searched from 1835 to 1870.

Registered Dubbo,  #7963.

I know it is possible that a marriage can be missing from indexes and even some baptisms/Births and Funerals/Deaths.

But it would be unlucky to have missed nearly all, wouldn't it. The Paper "and we all know are quite often wrong" has John snr marrying twice in ORANGE, that is if I read the paper correctly? Or is it more fanciful talk from a very old man?

Young John/Jack was born to John snr and his first wife an aboriginal, the paper has him down as 118 years young? The death Registration has him as 105? Would a Baptism be recorded for young Jack under those circumstances.
