    Note We think, but not have confirmed, that two brothers married two sisters.
    * The first marriage was in Willunga in 1854 when John Matthews snr was 22 years old and Elizabeth Vinecombe was 33 years. This is a surprising 11 years difference.
    * The other marriage, three and a half years later, was in Noarlunga in 1857 when George Matthews was 19 years old and Caroline Vinecombe was 17 yrs.
    * Willunga and Noarlunga are 35 kms apart.
    * The brothers were born 6 years apart - John Mathews was born in c1832 and George Matthews in c1838. However there is a big gap of 19 years with 'sisters' - Elizabeth Vinecombe was born c1821 and Caroline was c1840. Not impossible, but they might be cousins rather than sisters. This needs to be checked.

      ORIGINALLY extremely difficult to match up Elizabeth and John on 6 different websites. Then tested correct spelling; Matching John Matthews to wife with misspelt surnames and bingo; the record of Elizabeth gave me her second name Ann and variations aplenty of her surname.
