Just to complete the picture:
Mary Hogben who married William Wellwood in 1862 was a widow.
She was Mary LARKIN born about 1816 (possibly Irish) and had come to Australia as a free emigrant. She married Thomas HOGBEN in 1842. He was a convict from Kent, England with a life sentence, who had arrived on "Asia” in 1837.

@majm thank you for your detailed response

I'm going through the links you've supplied to add the info to my records. I have a complete document going through William's life from hardship in Dunfermline, Scotland through to his arrest and sentencing at Perth court, the journey to Australia from Liverpool and now marriage and death in Deniliquin!

I'll have to try and arrange a trip to Deniliquin myself, though not for a year or two, to see the place for myself.
