Note: Kevin Matthews has 5 June 1837 as the date of Maria's death. The better view, at this stage, is that is the date of her burial. The other sources have her DOD as 31 May. This fits with 5 June being her burial date.

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.
