What certificates do you, personally, have for BDM events in the lives of DYKES family - Australia and NZ?

Jessie DYKES is buried in the Old Hamilton Cemetery, RC section, location unknown.  From the spelling of the name I'll assume Jessie is a female.  She was buried 15 Feb 1869.

Whoever the informant was, knew she was born in Belfast (Port Fairy) and her father was John DYKES but got her mother wrong!  Was she working there, passing through.... Hmmm.

Consider what BDM certificates will be of use to you, and why.

Death certificate of John DYKES.......will account for children....alive...deceased. His cause of death will be useful. If he died suddenly, then you might assume that he was working until then.

If he died of chronic illness, he might have been unable to support his family for some time before his death......how did Mary and children manage.

Marriage certificate for Mary Ann DYKES, 1884, in Victoria. It will name parents with possibly indication of them as (dec). Name of witnesses would be useful.

                                      -----------------------------------------------------


Is this information from your previous post? -

" Mary Ann (my ggrandmother) was deaf and cdnt communicate well.."

Was Mary Ann deaf as a child?  Mary Ann DYKES mentioned at reply #12 would seem to be confident and assertive. This Mary Ann DYKES wrote to the lands board folks about the original interview. If your Mary Ann was deaf as a child you might wonder about her chances at education.

You need to research all the children of John DYKES and Mary KELLY to locate Mary after the death of her husband.

When Jessie DYKES dies, there is someone around to be informant for the death record.

What is on this death certificate?

Is this information from your previous post? - about John DYKES -

"..This one died before 1884".

Is this taken from the 1884 marriage certificate for Mary Ann DYKES?
