FOOTNOTES

The baptismal date and parentage recorded for ELIZABETH (SARAH) MITCHELL, though it looks credible and came from on the spot local research, may relate to another person of the same name and therefore be incorrect

MARGARET McMAHON - The marriage certificate of MARGARET to WILLIAM FIELD names her as "MARGARET McMAHON or SEXTON" and she was described as a widow. She was therefore perhaps the widow SEXTON. See the note for ELIZABETH FIELD (next note), her daughter, for clarification of doubts as to her parentage.

ELIZABETH FIELD - There is considerable confusion over ELIZABETH FIELD. She is named on the death certificate of MARGARET ALLPORT (previously FIELD and nee McMAHON) as a daughter by her marriage to WILLIAM FIELD with an age (44) that indicates a date of birth of about 1845. Note that 1845 is not only prior to their date of marriage but 2 years prior to the death aged 34 of WILLIAM's first wife. ELIZABETH's death certificate does not name her mother, but names WILLIAM FIELD as her father with an age that indicates that she was born in 1837. There are other indications that she was born about 1837. Elizabeth childrens' birth certificates all record her as born at NANIMA, which is on the Lachlan River near FORBES.

CHARLES FIELD - Origin of this name is Volume 2 of The 1788-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, but the researchers of this work know of no other indications of CHARLES' existence. Indeed, the existence of JOHN FIELD seems to indicate that CHARLES did not.

MARIA ROPE - The origin of this name is Volume 2 of The 1788-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, but all indications are that no such person existed.

JOAN MORRIS - The origin of this name is Volume 2 of The 1788-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, but there are no other indications that it is correct. Indeed, it appears from the existence of JOHN MORRIS that JOAN is unlikely to be correct.

WILLIAM JOSEPH MORRIS - The origin of this name is Volume 2 of The 1788-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, but WILLIAM JOSEPH MORRIS does not appear in the 1828 Census and the researchers of this work know of no other indications that he existed.

CLARA MORRIS - The origin of the date of birth of CLARA is Volume 2 of The 1788-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, but as she does not appear in the 1828 Census, that date of birth does not fit in with the one recorded for her brother GRANT and the gap between GRANT and GEORGE, the researchers suspect she was born about 1830. Clara was baptised 13/5/1865 at Hartley, and the (Church of England) register records her date of birth as 12 November and her age as 30. While this suggests a date of birth of 12/11/1834, there was probably just "her word" for it!

GRANT MORRIS - The date of birth of GRANT is based on that in Volume 2 of The 178-1820 Association's Pioneer Register, adjusted to take account of GRANT being recorded as "aged 6 months" in the 1828 Census.

EDWIN FIELD was married, died and buried as EDWIN JAMES FIELD

SARAH MITCHELL was also known as SARAH FIELD. Some of her descendants believe her unnamed father was a Spaniard while a contemporary newspaper reports Sarah's false claim that her father was a "Lieutenant Wilson".
