 I was wondering if this is the correct "Alice" crawford - called Elsie
5229/1889
BANNIS HENRY       CRAWFORD   ELSIE
WOLLONGONG

Attached are the pages from church records St Michaels Woollongong.
It is quite difficult to make out the correct surnames - Bannes, Bonnes, Bannis, Bennis?? and I cannot work out where Henry comes from - is it Sweden?

Yesterday I searched for a short while trying to find the Bannis / Bannes name in various places and drew a blank. I eventually ran out of time.

The surname might be even be BARNES. There are a few possible births in Bourke to a Henry W Barnes and Elsie
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)

 :D

Thanks Neale,  very interesting....   

If your surname included the letter 'i' within it,  and the clergyman wrote it twice (once for the groom, and once for the father of the groom) and then YOU actually signed the document too,  .....  ummmm....  where is the 'dot' over that letter 'i'  ....   And yes, I agree, Sweden for the birthplace.

Mt Kiera gets a 'dot',  so too does April and the Bride's given name too, .... but not BANNIS .... so it seems to me that it should have been indexed as BANNES ....  and an 'e' tagged on to SHARP for the bride's mother's nee name ....   Just my opinion of course.

There's an RChatter who often posts info re Sweden.  Perhaps he will know the surname ....   :)  Fingers crossed.

Where henry signs - it looks more like "Banery"

MAYBE ????
Name:   Henry Baner
Port of Departure:   Bremen
Port of Arrival:   Sydney, New South Wales
Voyage Arrival Date:   18 Mar 1889
Vessel Name:   Nurnberg
(I think the name looks more like BAUER on the original ship list)

then they had Sarah 1861, John1865, James 1867, George 1869, William 1871, Elizabeth approx 1873 can't find birth, Charles 1876, Robert 1878
I have all there birth transcribts except Elizabeth, I also have George and Jane's death transcribt.
I have tried to put the transcribts on but take up kb

This could be Henry's naturalization record. This Henry was married to a Elsie Sharp Barnes. If this is him he was then born in Finland. Parts of Finland were Swedish when he married. His signature looks to be the same as the one on his marriage record :

Well done Ian? That does look to be the same man and same signature. Father named Carl (Charles).
Also occupation as a miner is a match too. Date of birth also a match!
So my hunch about the name being BARNES was right.

According to Henry’s naturalisation document - there were no children.
