    • The BRB has Albert and Mary getting married in 1911 whereas Louise Johnson has found a BMD record of their marriage in 1916 in Sydney. Since the BRB relied on word of mouth, altered NSW BDM record.
    • EMAIL FROM STEPHENANDLOUISE DATED 26TH JAN 2018 TO LADYJ:How did someone find a marriage between Albert and Mary in 1911 when the BDM has their marriage in 1916? This is extract from BRB Page 220 only states the dates with limited evidence of FM=family memories. ?Mary Margaret Mclean born 20/10/1885 at the "Rock Lily Tavern". Mona Vale which was then the staging post for the northern coast. Donald built a small wooden house at Narrabeen where there is now [1996] a median strip of a 6 lane highway. It eventually became the back scullery and laundry for the 2 storey brick house already mentioned as being both home and post office until the new one was erected, Information from Betty O'Gorman, dau of Kindor McLean//
      Married: Albert Brabant c1911 and was if Narrabeen NSW
      Death: Mary died in her 77th year on 22/9/1962?


      How was Sheila McLean linked with Albert and Mary? There is no record of her birth in the
      NSW BDM, which is highly likely if she was illegitimate, but the birthplace of Thirroul is
      puzzling.

      RHETORICAL of course.
