Thanks for adding this information to the database, it's great to have it all recorded. With regard to Mary's death, she died in 1923 and the NSW BDM registration reference is 13634/1923. I also had a look at Ethel Horsey and Frederick William Dudley Sindel's records on your website, and there are no details recorded re the Sindel side of the tree. Do you have any interest in this? I have done lots of research on the family (being a Sindel myself!) and would be happy to give you copies of my records. They have an interesting convict heritage, with several family members being transported from around 1790, and amongst other items of interest I have copies of the Old Bailey court records for my g-g-g=grandfather David Knowland.

Robert Horsey was born on the 25th of October, 1860 at the Randwick Benevolent Asylum. His mother was Mary Horsey, aged 23, born in England. The birth certificate is marked "Illegitimate" across the sections where the father's name and marriage details would normally go. I have obtained a copy of the certificate from NSW BDM (Ref 1860/002108) and would be happy to send a copy to you if you would like one. As a matter of interest, there is also a listing in BDM for William Horsey with the next reference number, and then a death certificate for the same day. So it seems Mary had twins and only one survived. It seems Robert was left at the asylum as an orphan, or "abandoned child" as they were known. I also have a copy of Mary's shipping/immigration records showing that she arrived in Sydney in 1856 on board the Winifred. This document shows her father as Robert Horsey (after whom she named her son) and her mother as Elizabeth Owen. I could not stop myself from chasing up Mary's life after that, and she married Matthew Sullivan in 1863 and lived happily ever after! The marriage certificate lists her parents the same as on the shipping records. You may be aware that Robert's death certificate shows his father as Robert Horsey and his mother as Mary, with maiden name unknown, but this is incorrect as the surname Horsey is that of Mary.
