1826, October 14

Elizabeth PENDERGAST, spinster, 24, Sydney. 
St James C of E, by Richard Hill.

Elizabeth was born in the colony.

.

1829, June 22
William BOYD, bachelor, of Sydney
Elizabeth JENKS spinster of Sydney
St Philips C of E by Rev William COWPER

He died intestate ... but must have had family and property in NSW ....

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/2194150  Sydney Gaz  22 Dec 1829
NSW Supreme Court notice, Eccs Jurisdiction ... Admon on his Goods, Chattels, Rights, Credits and Effects...

You need to consider this chap, to eliminate the various William BOYDs you will come across ... ie children of this William and Elizabeth BOYD .... could be mistaken for children of the other William and Elizabeth BOYD .... from birth to death and even by family history buffs in 21st century.

I don't know who that Elizabeth Pendergast is,  I did not check on her she did appear on the BDA.

On all the docs. I have the marriage is dated 1829. but one is a convict the other is the master mariner.
This is what is confusing, the marriage to Elizabeth Jenks in 1829 the William Boyd was illiterate. so was his brother John who was the witness, this marriage could be the convict.
But then as previously posted both the William Boyds have the same history, except for their early life.
William Snr. died on 12th Mar.1850 at Glenrock (a property) and was buried on the property, the government acquired the land for a railway, a few graves were relocated, but Williams grave could not be found, so mention is that his remains are still there.
Elizabeth moved back to Kent St where she lived until her death in July, 1853, she was buried in Camperdown Cemetery.
Thomas Boyd, son of William and Elizabeth married Eliza Freeman in 1859, he gave his mothers name as Elizabeth Lewis.

I will check up next weekend if I get a chance, but I am concerned about the Camperdown Cemetery sightings ...  I think that Elizabeth (BOYD)  could be part of a family at Glebe, and NOT connected to the Charles LEWIS who died on Lake Macquarie.   I may be relying on grey cells, so I will check and double check ....

There is also a William Boyd and an Elizabeth Janks marriage on the BDM's for NSW,  in 1829, not sure if it is a different marriage or a duplication of Elizabeth Jenks?
I'm thinking I need to invest in some transcriptions as it gets a little complicated.

I think you need to keep Elizabeth Pendergast in the picture,  she would likely have had a child, perhaps a son, and likely named him after her husband ...  another William BOYD to keep in mind, in Sydney and around the same age as Elizabeth JENKS possible pre nuptial sons, Thomas and William

If the NSW BDM has two BOYD JENKS entries in 1829, that is likely the ONE m.c. but one will be the transmitted copy of the other.  Likely in different volumes etc ...  I think BDA has all the info off the St James C of E and the St Phillips C of E in the NSW Chaplain eras.... so from the beginning until mid 1850s ...
