Joseph Benjamin OLLIFFE & Ann OSBORNE

The NSW Parliament site in relation to Joseph Benjamin OLLIFFE JNR born 1835 - died 1930:
"Son of Joseph Benjamin, innkeeper, and Ann Osborne. Baptised at Saints Mary & Ann Shandon Roman Catholic Church, Cork, Ireland.

Marianne Josephine b. abt 1828 Cork
Frances Ellen b. abt 1829 Cork

Kate (Catherine) b. abt 1839 Sydney ? but no birth reg in NZ or NSW. (3rd daughter on her marriage in Sydney)

1841 NSW Census
OLLIFFE Joseph B 200 Bourke Street, Surry Hills, Parish Alexandria, County Cumberland, District Sydney [X950] p.45 Reel 2223

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 20 November 1878 p.1
OLLIFFE.-November 19, ... at his residence, Francis-street, Sydney, Mr. Joseph Benjamin Olliffe, senr., aged 74 years.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 18 July 1893 p.1
OLLIFFE.-July 14, at her residence, 6 Francis-street, Hyde Park, Ann, relict of the late Joseph Benjamin Olliffe, in her 87th year.

So far I can't find ref to any researcher who has the marriages or can prove we have brothers marrying sisters. Or provide details of the arrival in Australia and NZ of both families.

Some marriages in NSW were CofE and Presbyterian. Some burials RC and some CofE.
