I have all the CD's for BDM's in Victoria so don't use any online index.

There was a birth registered in the Armidale district but I've followed that through so not him.  Have you considered that George, if that was his real name, may have already been married to someone else.

It's quite possible the OP only needs us to help with marriage and/or birth records. 

All sorts of scenarios are possible.  George's birth mother may have remarried and he acquired the new husband's name.  He may not have been born but raised at Tamworth.  Similarly the same may have happened to Amy.
