Hi Stuart,

What a quick reply!

Olive Frances Donkin married Alfred Lee in 1924

My mother, Ruth Trevena Spear (nee Lee) is their 8th child Born Quakers Hill(?) 1937 Married Kenneth Charles Spear May 1960

I have a suspicion that Emma and Albert may have got divorced and when she remarried (?) her new name was Pretty or similar.

I have been trying to track down Emma Miller's birth. There was a Emma E Miller born in 1881 in Sydney and one born in 1886 but is the Emma who married Albert one of these or some else completely.

I do know there was a farmer, Robert Lean living in Dungog in 1861, 2 years prior to James Donkin and Margaret Lean getting married in Dungog. But the only association I can make is the surname and they may not be connected.

Similarly, a Robert Lean (age 28) also appears as a passenger on the City of Edinburgh in 1837. Trouble is confirming any of these people are linked or not. However I thought it was interesting that a Willam Donkin (age 29) was on the same ship.

Thanks again for your quick reply
