That's about all I know about this couple
Thank you I had no idea what happened to them after they arrived in Australia only that they married in Maitland. Would like to know where they went from there
I have found this info when I searched, Thomas Parker born 1804 and Mary Carr born 1814 in "google search" from the info that has been previously gathered from other family members of "The Parker" line, the information is as follows:
Thomas & Mary married 2.10.1836 they had 10 children, 5 boys & 5 girls - Thomas Jr, John James (that's all I know at the moment)
They moved from Maitland to Sydney , he was a shoemaker & had a shoe shop in George Street, Sydney.
One of their Children was "John James Parker" born 2.11.1846 & he married Isabella Stamm (born 1852) in 1869 they had many children 13-16 children we believe.
One of those boys was Francis William Parker born July 18th 1891 ( who I knew as Bossy) who married Kathleen (Schutz) Parker ( who I knew her as Nanna Kath) they had 4 children, Joyce (Shaddle) Parker, William Alfred ( known as Bill )Parker & Francis James (known as Jim) & Colin Henry Parker 18.5.1928 - 7.11.2008 (was known as Col) who is MY Grandfather!

My grandfather was Arthur and we knew uncle frank and aunty kath well. As he often visited my grandfather and grand mother.
