They were married at a house. The service was conducted by a minister of the Presbyterian church.
Should I enquire at the church or a local historical society. Or both!
How can I find out who supplied the information on the copied entry?

I have just added to my reply.

You enquire with Presbyterians asking for the current location of Rev's register if you cannot find its location via Google.  Family history groups anywhere, not just the local one to Raymond Terrace, can have sourced transcriptions.      Many marriage ceremonies were conducted in private homes.   The 1878 Electoral Roll for that district has two chaps named Steven DAVIS at Nelson's Plains.  One was a settler, the other was qualified to vote as a freeholder.  There may well be others surnamed DAVIS in that district.  You could also search out by the witness names.

It could well be that the document with those full details accurately reflects Rev Boag's register, so perhaps you could contact the person who supplied it to you and ask them where they sourced that document and make your own judgement as to the veracity of the record.   

Many of the regional and rural registers were filmed by the LDS in the last decade or so.     You may need to make enquiries through that group too.  National Library of Australia is another possibility, so too the https://www.gsv.org.au/   Genealogy Society of Victoria in Melbourne and/or https://www.sag.org.au/ Society of Australian Genealogists, Sydney NSW

NSW BDM birth
21742/1889  BROWN Frederick P C  parents p / Catherine H @ Gundagai
11625/1892  BROWN Robert B         parents - / Catherine H    @  Cootamudra

What second and third given name do you see for Frederick?   

The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural and Mining Advocate
26 Oct 1916 p5   (Exemption Court WW1)
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/122184943?

"...Robert Henry Bruce BROWN  a share-farmer from Muttawa.............I only want time to get my crop in...."

This would suggest that there is expectation that the men of the district will enlist, and Robert seems keen to do so. Using NAA WW1 I do not see an enlistment for Robert...born  Muttawa/Cootamundra/Gundagai/Goulburn etc.

Freehold - so a landowner...  I speculate - perhaps a grazier - sheep for wool  :D  :D

NSW ER 1870 THE ARGYLE
John BRIAN, freehold, Monk's Gully, Laggan.

https://sites.rootsweb.com/~hcastle/grevilles/grevilles.html    I have not looked in Grevilles 1872,  but I have checked Grevilles 1875 - NO John Brian at Laggan.

Does the document you hold note the denomination for the clergy ?   

Does it explain how the transcriber obtained the information for ages and places of birth of bride and groom,  and the names of their parents, occupation, etc. .

Place of marriage.....  Office of the District Registrar, Goulburn.
Religion.... Act of Council.

Minister  Wm Chatfield.

No details about the source of names, dates etc.

I didn't think transcriptions noted where the information came from. I thought they just transcribed what was on the document.
