William CHAMPION and Adelaide NANKERVIS.
William and Adelaide's birth places given as Cornwall.
Year married: 1875.
Place: Victoria, Australia.
William died 1929 in Newtown, Victoria, aged 79 years.
Parents named as Isaac CHAMPION and Elizabeth TREVERON.
I expect TREVERON should be TREVORROW.
Adelaide died 1931 in Newtown, Victoria, aged 74 years.
Parents named as James NANKERVIS and Sarah TREMBATH.
Note. Adelaide's birth place given as Cornwall, but unable to locate a baptism for her under that name.
See comments below from SilverVixen regarding Adelaide's baptism.
Adelaide's parents may be James NEKERVIS (sic) and Sarah TREMBATH married in St Just in Penwith, Cornwall, on the 31 October 1835. The name NANKERVIS appears under various spellings in the Cornwall records.
Two children located Victorian records for William and Adelaide.
