Note: It was noted that John was 39 years of age at the time of his arrival in Australia in 1842. John and Sydney appear to have lied about their ages to enable them to be given government assistance to migrate to Australia. This issue was raised but the bounty of £58 was paid (to Robert How & Co???).

Northern Ireland Marriages, Volume 2 (Manuscript found at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City on microfilm 824282, item 3). Marriages are taken from Aghalee, County Antrim, 1811-1844; Arboe, County Tyrone, 1783-1845; Ballinderry, County Londonderry, 1803-1845; Ballymoney, County Antrim, 1808-1845; Ballynahinch, County Down, 1709-1785, 1801-1834; Boardmills, County Down, 1782-1842, 1851-1870; Camus, County Tyrone, 1804-1845; Donegore, County Antrim, 1806- 1841; Drumachose, County Londonderry, 1730-1845; Henry Street, County Limerick, 1819-1860; Inch, County Down, 1791-1926; Kilrea, County Londonderry, 1829-1848; Lissara, Down Down, 1811-1851; Lower Cumber, County Down, 1808-1845; Magheralin, County Down, 1785-1845; Moira, County Down, 1785-1877; Raffrey, County Down, 1845-1877; Rathfriland, County Down, 1783-1801; Rosemary Street, Belfast, County Antrim, 1811-1845; Saintfield, County Down, 1724-1750; Seaford, County Down, 1760-1894; and Tamlaght, Counties Londonderry and Tyrone, 1834-1844. Registration of marriages at the General Register Office in Dublin was compulsory for all Protestants after April 1845 in Ireland. They are the official record. Registration for all individuals became compulsory in Ireland after 1864.

Note: Ancestry.com.au shows the record of this marriage occurring in 1843. This would seem incorrect as William and Jane arrived in Australia in 1842 and their son John was born on the voyage.
