In part:

"Samuel's parents are Stephen & Elizabeth Smith nee Mayberry/Maybury, originally Mayberry but there are various spellings in later documents, as you probably know they spelt it how it sounded to the scribe, (which would have made it very difficult if they had an accent) I have attached some documents that will give you some help if you are interested. Most of Samuel's siblings were born in and around Clarence Town NSW. They also have a long history with the Bulladelaha area in NSW."
