Thanks noggin. I know they came to Australia in 1838. I have quite a lot of information after this time through a family book. What I have been unable to find is more information about his and Mary's life before coming to
Australia. According to the book I have he was training for the ministry and had to retire as he got married during his probationary period. He supposedly opened up a school in London but that is about all I know.

Looking further into the book I have Mary was born in Fortunes Wells, Portland Is, England, so that rules out the other entries you found.

Thanks for that....I now have a date of birth for Mary! Just to clarify my previous remark, what I meant was that I can now sort out which of the entries you wrote is her.

Do you know about the cairn honoring Edward Stone Parker at Franklinford, opened in 1966 if I remember correctly? If not,you'll find a picture of it somewhere,perhaps Wikipedia. It's at the junction of the Newstead road and the track that went up to the old school (now the community hall)and can be seen on Google Earth. You might find my Frankinford journal about the school,Edward Stone Parker etc. of interest.

Thank you itellya. I have just found out about this and apparently a building named the ES Parker centre, so my husband and I are off to see this sometime this month. My husband is a descendent of the grand daughter of ES 1st marriage who married the grandson of ES 2nd marriage. How could I access your Frankinford journal?
