Added: freebmd has marriages in 1850 in West Brom which includes a John Matthews and a Mary Gordon, but I don’t know if they married each other. :-\

Unfortunately, the marriage is between John MATTHEWS (father: William) and Harriet MATTHEWS (father: Edward) on 3 March 1850 at West Bromwich.

Thanks for eliminating that one Maddy.  :)

That's a good idea too JM.

A very kind and generous RootsChatter - rosball - offers to photograph records that are held at Kingswood, however she won't be going there again until after our lockdown is over, so quite some time yet I would think.

I don’t know where Dave-W is situated, but it is possible to get a copy of many of the NSW records (depending on date), through state libraries in other states. I have in the past accessed early NSW church records on Microfisch held at QLD State library. A phone call or email to the family history section might advise on availability.
Milligan - Jardine – Glencross – Dinwoodie - Brown: (Dumfriesshire & Kirkcudbrightshire)
Clark – Faulds – Cuthbertson – Bryson – Wilson: (Ayrshire & Renfrewshire)
Neale – Cater – Kinder - Harrison: (Warwickshire & Queensland)
Roberts - Spry: (Cornwall, Middlesex & Queensland)
Munster: (Schleswig-Holstein & Queensland) and Plate: (Braunschweig, Neubruck & Queensland)

I have posted some info on the 'wrong' thread.... ( ;D  ;D  ;D ) but it belongs here on this thread (I will sort - not everyone can confuddle things but I excel at that -  sssshhhhhhh  :-[  :-[ , ) :

John MATTHEWS has quite a number of parcels of land in the Civil parish of Lindsay in the County of Bathurst in the Land District of Carcoar as per the 1884 historic parish map available online (no charges involved) from the former NSW Land Titles Office.

I will be back shortly.  It can be a tad difficult to access if you are not familiar with their website.

JM
BACK now

At the following website https://www.nswlrs.com.au/Parish-and-Historical-Maps  scroll through to the following
Finding parish and charting maps
Historical Land Records Viewer
The Historical Land Records Viewer (HLRV) is an online tool that you can use to explore parish and historical maps. It includes digital records of the charting of the state’s cadastre (property boundaries), which were digitised from hard copy maps in 2002. An archive of these maps can be viewed for free in the Historical Land Records Viewer.
 Then click on the Historical Land Records Viewer.   Accept their T & C – or be denied access.

At the next section, click on the ‘search by’heading in the keyword dialogue box, and scroll through the options and select the PARISH NAME option.    And then move to the next dialogue box (to the right).    Enter the following :  LINDSAY
This gets you to a the historic maps for the area that John Matthews held freehold title to. 
Select the one for 1884,  and zoom in as far as you want….  Move right and left and up and down through that map…. Quite a few parcels for him.
There are similar maps for all the civil parishes across all of NSW.   
How did I know which parish map to look for?   Well there’s several other threads describing how to sort that out.   
Here: https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=678243.0  THIS helps to provide the name of the parish for all the localities in NSW as per their familiar names to the staff employed in that government department in the 1950s through to the 1970s.   It is an excellent “cheat sheet”.
And
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=777978.0   this is the Land Registry Services info (the former NSW Land Titles Office, of which NSW Births Deaths Marriages was once a sub-office)

I was born and raised 'on the Lachlan' Condo and thereabouts...  I can easily wear Condo socks.
