Yep, that is my George. But who was the George the witness at the wedding?

An uncle/cousin. There were quite a few Parsons in the area.

Maybe children could be witnesses.

You're getting me a bit off track now Jamjar ;-) Interesting point about a child being a witness to a marriage. Will check it out.

Sorry, just trying to link your George to the others.

Here he is in 1841: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQ1X-NF2

Do you have his arrival? The obit says he came out in 1854. So, did he come out with the PITTS?

Is this his death in 1919?

George, obit 3rd column: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/73051882?searchTerm=George%20Parsons

Sorry for the late reply Jamjar. Had to do some work ;-)  Yes that is George's death. He did alright for himself as the son of a 'peasant'.  As far as I can tell he didn't come out with the Pitts but I'm having trouble finding a record of his arrival. The closest I have to age at arrival is on the on the 'Morning Star' in 1856 but age is a bit out and date doesn't match his obituary.
