1871 census, Northumberland, Maguire family

Could these be Mary Maguire's family?

Extracts from SA General Registry Office (GRO) Information

From the foundation of South Australia as a colony in December 1836 up until the implementation of the Real Property Act (Torrens Title System) in 1858, all deeds and records of land and other similar transactions were held at the South Australian General Registry Office (GRO).  The role of the GRO covered more than just property transactions and included mortgages, conveyances, leases, land grants, indentures, wills and other records which were deposited with the office.  Documents called memorials represent those original deeds registered and held by the GRO, whereas documents known as deposits or enrolments are certified copies held by the GRO.  These GRO records are now held at the S.A. Land Services Group, corner of Marion Road and Richmond Road, Netley where such records for early landowners and pioneer settlers are available upon suitable application......

From a transcription of 127/313.   :D

127/313

James SUMMERS, single, aged 23, married 26 April 1881, St Rose Church, Kapunda to Mary MAGUIRE, single, aged 23.  His father : Anthony SUMMERS.   Her father : Bernard MAGUIRE.

I have checked and re-checked the date of the marriage from my usually reliable source.   26 April 1881.    3 April 1881 was date for UK census  :D

 
SA marriage: 1881
SUMMERS, James and MAGUIRE Mary; Kapunda; #127/313   

His death: 1928 SUMMERS, James McPherson; Norwood# 505/176
