I have no data on the children of Lucy Brown and William Norris.

In 1849 Jesse married Mary BEASLEY at St. Andrews Scots Church Sydney.

I have not purchased the documents to see which Mary belongs to which child. I will leave that up to others.

Hey there Rob, Hmmm 13yrs old. My my. To find the children of Lucy BROWN and William NORRIS checkout the site - goto the Emigrants to Australia board. Someone should have the bdm indexes for all the States of Australia. I couldn't find any listed under BROWN or NORRIS in NSW, and as you say they went to QLD. You'll definitely find out more. They'll be on the old pioneers indexes on cd-rom. Lots of rootschatters have those.

Lucy would have had 3 children by the age of 20, her first at age 16. She had her last of 10 children at age 52, and she died aged 62 if all the data is correct.
Data given by a descendant of Lucy Brown's Uncle David Brown who also emigrated to Australia.

Children listed must be children to Mary Greenhaigh. i'm a descent of Mary Charlton/Beasley. She is one of the same people. Mary had three children with Charles Beasley the 2nd, they never married, before having three children with Jesse.
1/ Jesse Joseph 1840-1903
2/Elizabeth Sarah 1843-1921
3/Edwin James 1846- ?
Jesse and Mary married after the children in 1949

I have updated my data from Kareena V.
They were certainly swingers in those days with multiple partners and many children !!!!!
In time I will amend these files!
