"George Newby was baptised at East Halton, Lincolnshire on 1 January 1835 [East Halton Parish register]. It was actually recorded as “Geo. Newby”. He was married to Mary Ann Green on 13 July 1867 [as George Newby]. I don’t know when he included ‘Brown’ in his name. His death was registered as George Brown Newby. [It is possibly a clue as to John Newby’s lineage – I suspect John’s great grandmother was Elizabeth Brown (married to a John Newby), however I have no proof]."

"Sarah Jane married John Green at Chatham on 12 December 1867 [Source: NSW BDM Reg. No. 2247/1867]. The transcription states incorrectly that Sarah Jane was born in England. Sarah Jane died as stated on your site – 28 February 1886. Her brother John Newby was the informant, and he states that Sarah Jane was born in Port Macquarie."
