Note: The marriage certificate for William and Matilda includes the information that William was 23 years of age at the time of his marriage. The Pre 1860 Pioneer Register has William being born in 1842, whilst the Reed-Prendergast Family Group Sheet has him being born in 1840. I cannot find any birth reference to confirm any date.
