Shume, as you have access to Ancestry, could you locate the page before the one I have linked, for the 1861?

Do you have a copy of that 1884 marriage cert?  It will likely have been reconciled to the church registers and if so, it will likely include the information that the bride and groom provided to the clergy when they married.

Zylar22, do you have the marriage and death certificates?

No I havenít got copies of the marriage or death certificates yet. All the information which people have found has been so helpful I am unsure if I really need them.

Well, if it were my direct Ancestor I would definitely be outlaying for the purchase of transcriptions.
The information will give you a foundation, free from uncertainty, about your early people.  From there you can move out in all directions to inquire about the extended family.

The information on Australian certificates is very extensive.
Among other things, you will be able to confirm his mother's maiden name.

Then how do you know that it is the correct William who is dead and buried?

The Rookwood cemetery records have William buried in the same plot as two of his children and his wife is in the plot next door with one of their other children.

I also have a newspaper obituary about his death which stated the date, location of burial, his wife and children’s names.

His wife is also a descendant of the Monaro Pioneers, which contains a database about her, her kids and that lists the year of her husbands death.
