Mr and Mrs C Woolford and 2 children arriving on the JESSIE in 1838, first column:

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article31720326

Their UK marriage: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N6G8-XZ5

Their son who died, aged 2, I think in Sydney: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5JP-7XQ

So, where did Bridget come from? Nothing standing out on FamilySearch.

Thanks all.

I think I have found some more issue to Charles and Bridget.

WOOLFRED, William 1826 NSW
WOODFORD, Thomas 1828 NSW
WALFORD, Charles 1831 NSW
WALFORD, Joseph 1833 NSW.

I have also found an online tree (yes I know) that has Bridget as Bridget DUFFY, arriving on the ĎBengal Merchantí at Port Jackson 14 September 1828 as Mrs DUTHIE, the Captains wife!!!

Bitzar.

EDIT:  The 1828 arrival and 1826 birth donít work!

Worth noting.
If age at death for Bridget WOOLFORD, 76 years in 1864, is correct, she would have been a very mature age mother to have Mary Ann in 1837.

That online tree has her passing at Hyde Park Asylum!  Also has Charles passing at Tarban Creek Asylum.

Charles WOOLFORD  arrived NSW as Garrison with 3rd regiment,  when they were relieved he stayed, transferring to 39th.  Took discharge after 14 years service ... so took it in 1832,  and at Port Macquarie ... had served in VDL and NSW .... Emu Plains,  Bathurst and Port M. 

Will type up details tomorrow evening ...

Online tree has him passing at Tarban Creek Asylum in 1846. 

JM - Some of The children baptised at Bathurst and Port Macquarie is that looks promising.  Also a Charles WOOLFORD of the right age was in the Canadian Army in 1813.
