Sorry a wee typo error on my part.
Bride should read Jessie CARFIELD and not GARFIELD.
Thank you,that confirms the he was definitely a Kiwi. Hopefully I will now be able to find out more about him. Your input is very much appreciated.
To save yourself a lot of research time I suggest you obtain the 1872 marriage certificate for John LUCAS and Jessie CARFIELD as this will name John's parents and age when married. John's details appearing on the certificate should help to confirmed John's birth and death.
Possible Death for John is 1916 in Queensland.
Age not recorded.
Parents named as William and Mary Ann FROST.
Ref: Registry of Deaths Queensland. Reg #B22849.
Possible Birth for John is 1849 in New Zealand.
Parents named as Samuel and Mary Ann.
Ref: Registry of Births New Zealand. Reg #1849/1343.
It's hard trying to locate births and deaths if you don't have the approximate year of birth and parents names.
Thanks you have been a mine of information. I will do as you suggested and get the marriage certificate to gain further details. Have quite a bit of detail on Jessie his wife but I think he may have been a bit of a mystery man.
