It does look like it's them  :) Well I bought the certificate image and typical of this country's record keeping it only lists the parents' names and professions  :( - it's too painful.

Well at least we know Martha existed which is also more evidence in the bag that we have the right George. At least you can get your marriage certs online, the uk does'nt do that.

Yes, her details match those my cousin has given me so we do know it's her for sure now. At least that's one thing, being able to download certificates, it's just a shame they didn't keep more detailed records - makes it hard.

I can't view much detail on there until I sign up. I want to get the family tree done before I do and it will take awhile.

I'm really disappointed I can't find a birth date for George on any of the documents in Australia, I really had high hopes for Martha's marriage certificate to at least have George's place of birth on it. What we have of him with the Rotten Row family must be him. I'm wondering now if the age on his marriage certificate - 27, should be 22 (like you previously suggested) - maybe the person who wrote the certificate was copying the information from a register and thought the 2 was a 7. One thing we have for sure is his daughter Martha's details now, which confirms she is indeed George's daughter. As for our family history, I just wanted to make sure that George of the Rotten Row family is our George. Everything else relating to the other side of the family has been well researched.

You could dig up his bones and get a DNA test. ;D
