Text:

The Austin-McQuire web site has their marriage year as 1846 yet the NSW Marriage Index shows 1848. It might just be a typograpical error on the web site.

The ML at the end of the index entry indicates a marriage according to the rights of the Church of England at Alnwick, Butterwick, Clarence Town, Middlehope, Raymond Terrace or Seaham. Note this does not include Morpeth.

Note: Kevin Matthews also has the year of marriage as 1846.
