Note: In the bigamy trial of Theodore Arthur De Meur, Elizabeth stated that she was about 15 years of age at the time of this marriage. Parents names are not cited in the marriage record cited, but it states that she was a native of Lincolnshire. However, the records cited for her next marriage and her death adds support to the view that this is the right Elizabeth Smith.

Marriage of a grandchildJohn STALKERJane SMITHView this family
between 1854 and January 1, 1859
Note: The death certificate for Jane shows them marrying in Maitland, whilst the death certificate for John shows them marrying in Sydney. The birth certificate of son James Richard clearly shows a marriage date of 1 January 1859 in Maitland. I am unable to find a relevant marriage registration in NSW.
