Here are the birth dates I have on file. The Gregory family attended "Church of St John the Evangelist" C of E, Cooks Hill, Newcastle, Newcastle City Library has the church records on microfilm for Marriages and Birth, they are scanned copies of the original registers so are in date order. Some time towards 1890 the family changed to "St Augustine's" C of E at Merewether, only the marriage records are available for this church.

In the Federal Directory of Newcastle & District 1901 page 180/181 Religions. William Gregory was a Lay Representative for the Parish of Merewether in the 3 session of the Twelfth synod of the Diocese of Newcastle held at Newcastle in May, 1900. - (You might already have this information). I've asked Maree if there's anything to confirm it was "our William" (1839 - 1931)
