Looking for ROBERT THOMPSON who lived in Victoria, Australia

Query by lainie24

This is one of my great grandfathers. He married PHOEBE ANN DERRICK As it is a common name I have not been able to pin him down. I think he was born about 1852 - maybe in the UK.

Robert gave his birth place as Beechworth but I have not found a birth for him. Robert THOMPSON was indeed a very common name and parents names would help with record searches. Robert's marriage certificate would include more details regarding parents names.
