    Hello again fellow TOP DOGs :)

    I present to you today another branch of my family, this one has been giving me issues almost as much as the previous one o_O

    Mary Ann WILDE born 17/11/1826 apparently at Oldham, Lancashire
    Christened 7/12/1826.
    She died in 1911 at Ovingham, Adelaide.

    She married John William Platt (father of Joseph) in November 1850 at "Manse, Freemans St. Adelaide SA". I have proof of this marriage.

    Looking for her parents, tried the census but couldn't find her as there were a few Mary Wilde.

    She is mentioned in Trove in a newspaper article about her husband's death with her surname being spelt PLATTS.

    Thank you

    Father James a spinner and mother Matty living at Lord Street baptised by Wim Winter. Register of Baptisms 1824-1829Page 33 Enrty 263. found on Lancashire OPC
    Matty could be Matilda.

    What are here parents names from this record?

    What's her father's name and does it give an age or say 'of full age'?

    Hi @MollyMay at the moment the only children I have found is this from familyhistorysa.org

    PLATT John William, Mary Ann ?, parents of child born 1857-11-25 named George at Brompton

    PLATT John William, Mary Ann WILD, parents of child born 1852-05-08 named Rachel at Brompton

    PLATT John William, Mary Ann WILD, parents of child born 1855-11-11 named John William at Brompton

    PLATT John William, Mary Ann WILDE, parents of child born 1860-04-05 named Joseph at Bowden

    The Joseph mentioned is my direct ancestor who married Alice Williams or supposed to have anyway

    I was hoping that an Isaac might crop up in the children's names giving weight to the chances of Isaac and Sarah being Mary Ann's parents.

    If these dates of birth and baptism are correct then the only thing I can think of is that Mary Ann was baptised under another surname. Perhaps Mum remarried to a Mr Wilde or she was single when Mary Anne was born and married Mr Wilde. Ive searched everywhere.

    So Mum emailed me the following this afternoon which seems to be the parents and siblings of Mary Ann Wild. She had it for a while and had forgotten about it. Not sure how accurate it is though.

    Only other info I have is John Wilde 1801
    married a Margaret born 1811
    John Edward
    They had Joseph 1821
    Henrietta 1826
    George 1826 Died 1914 Young NSW
    Jane 1827
    Mary Ann 1829 married John William Platt
    Seline 1834
    John Edward 1834
    Alexandria Victoria 1837
    Margaret 1840
    All born Middlesex London England not sure if some birth dates are right

    @Daft Bat what is this that you found them in? Thank you.

    @Archie's Mum that's the 1841 census you are talking about?

    So I guess I have to go to Ireland next. Travel the world from my lounge room :D

    I chose to follow Margaret born 1840 Marylebone. She is with her mother Margaret age 42 who now states born Stockport. Victoria is now born Chester, Selina born Marylebone as is Henrietta. Then there is a grandson Philip Selleck Age 3.
    I think Victoria is Alexandria Victoria.
