James EDWARDS

Tree: James b. 11 May 1868 Swansea - Wales

Sydney Anglican Parish Register
James Edwards
Gender: Male
Marriage Age: 24
Event Type: Marriage
Marriage Date: 3 Sep 1892
Marriage Place: Sydney, New South Wales
Parish as it Appears: Holy Trinity Church
Father: Frederick Edwards
Mother: Agnes Teresa Edwards

Spouse: Rebecca Frances Clara Johnston


I can't find a marriage for a Frederick EDWARDS to an Agnes before 1868 nor can I find the family in 1871. Several birth reg for a James in Wales in 1868 including one in Swansea with mmn= MORRIS.

Thanks,

Dave

Re: James EDWARDS

I can't see a marriage for a Frederick Edwards to an Agnes either, nor can I find a James Edwards with father Frederick. Are you sure he wasn't born in Australia. The tree could be wrong (they often are, particularly if no source is given).

Re: James EDWARDS

Thanks Emeltee.

I'll have to consider the 'born Swansea 1868' to be incorrect and see what can be found. This is his death

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/185200908
Coffs Harbour Advocate (NSW) - Tue 28 Jun 1932 p.3
KILLED BY TREE
Accident at Dorrigo
On Friday night Mr. James Edwards, who went to Dorrigo about 35 years ago and was one of the earliest settlers, was killed by a tree on a neighbour's property. He was 64 years of age and leaves a family of three sons and five daughters. The sons are Messrs. Onis and Victor, of Dorrigo, ...

Re: James EDWARDS

No marriage in NSW or Qld. or Vic. index.

No birth for James 1866- 1870 in NSW or Qld. or Vic. index.

I've not seen the image of the 1892 marriage so don't know yet how accurate that transcription is.

There is something wrong because the transcription is Holy Trinity = Garrison Church Sydney and NSW BMD has district as Berrima on south coast of NSW.

There is a Holy Trinity CofE church in Berrima.

Image here - built 1849

James' marriage gives his PoB as Wales.. I've sent the image details.

Geoff

EDIT: If you have problems with image, let me know, I can enlarge and send the 2 pages separately.

Re: James EDWARDS

Yeah, I've been following this topic at a distance [including Oris].

It is not easy, there appears to be 2 families with some similar named connections

Re: James EDWARDS

Not sure how I ended up in Qld.

Joadja is NW of Berrima.

We are still looking then for Frederick & Agnes as that bit of the transcription is correct.
