In part:

"Re: /1897 ROBINSON WILLIAM C WILLIAM JANE DUNGOG Yes that's him - I have William Chowne Robinson's death certificate and yes he died in 1897 at Bendolba near Dungog. The parents on his death certificate are incorrect, (William and Jane are actually his SON and his SON's wife) - his parents were Richard Robinson and Hannah Rae Chowne. The reason for them not being on his death certificate - Richard was a convict!"
