OK

I have a feeling there is an existing thread on this family.  I remember the last post being posted previously.

Yes  we found that one to. Mary came on the Earl Grey Scheme from Dublin. Elizabeth arrived with her mother who was a convict from Ireland. I believe they probably did find each other again.
 Most interested to know if theres anymore documentation about the abandoned children courtcase.

Is this your Mary Ann DYKES?


The Argus 19 Nov 1874 p6
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/5882912?
Matilda NOLAN (now WILSON), 320 acres, Terrick Terrick.—It was proved that there was no residence, and no improvement on the land when last visited. The allegation was that this woman, who was formerly his servant, was a dummy for Mr. BOUCHIER, who lived on an adjoining selection, and who, it was shown, had endeavoured to select land by means of Mary Ann DYKES, a girl 14 years of age, whom he had taken from the Geelong Orphan Asylum.......


The Age 20 Nov 1874 p3
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/201535295?
..... Mary Ann DYKES, an orphan child of fifteen years, who had sworn that she was eighteen years old when she applied, and subsequently wrote to ask that the selection might be forfeited, as she
was under that age........

My earlier requests -
 * Can you please identify the 6 births that you see to this couple.

* Marriage certificate for Mary Ann DYKES - does it describe father as being deceased.

* Can you list all the information on this document. It might lead to whoever brought her up.

 Ok
 Jessie Davis Dykes - 1850 -1869 - didnt know she had died in Hamilton
 Mary Anne Dykes - 1858 - 1914 died in NZ  - my ggrandmother
 Samuel 1856 - died in a well aged very young
 Joseph John - 1861-1864
 Andrew James - 1864- 1904 died in Geelong
 John Dykes - father died 1863 Warnambool.

 I dont think the marriage cert for Mary Anne says deceased for her parents, just trying
to find out from my mother who has it.

Deserting Children. — Mary Dyke, the mother of the two children who were brought before the Bench on the previous day as being deserted, was remanded to Tuesday.

There was a Mary DYKES who had 2 illegitimate children in 1864 and 1865 at SAND.  This could be also be this Mary if SAND is Sandhurst = Bendigo!
