Hi Sue
Yes I believe that WJC died on the 4 Aug 1932 at 48 Whitby Street, West Brunswick.
The challenge I'm having is determining who his parents were.
James Crocker & Isabella were married in Maryborough in 1864. Birth records of the 6 children states that their mother was Isabella Hogg. Yet the marriage record only shows Isabella no surname and the grooms name is James Crocker not George James Crocker.
The first born male was WJC (1865-1932).
To be honest at this stage I have excluded the marriage between James Crocker and Isabella Short in 1866.
I just have this gut feeling that George James decided to go by the name of James so he didn't have the same first name as his father.
Thanks

Vaughan & Everson, Stilling & Smith, Crocker & Hogg, Northey & England, deCheppe & Barley, Broad & Wise

I agree, your person did not marry Isabella SHORT.

You will need to download the marriage certificate for the CROCKER /(probably)HOGG marriage.

If correctly completed, it will give the bridegroom's parents.

Once you have that, you can proceed to the next generation.

This is George and Eleanora Crocker in the 1851 England census
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGPY-ZKB

and in the 1841 England census
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQL4-6Y3

George and Eleanora marriage - 28 May 1839 St Ann’s, Manchester.
There is some useful information re Eleanor’s parents written on the marriage bond
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F1S7-G26

Their children, that I see so far:
Mary Anne 1840,
William 1841,
William 1842,
George James 1843,
Sophia 1845,
Nora 1847,
Fanny Oakes 1849,
William and Harry/ Henry Laidlaw 1851,
Eleanora 1854.

This is the baptism for the son George James (your direct ancestor)
