I have a date and place of marriage but searching New Zealand records comes up with no results

Andrew Smyth or Andres Schmidt

Sarah Jane Gillespie

I have tried a +-5 year search and name variants with no luck

Thank you

Where did you get your original information, Paula? I’ve searched NZBDM too, but can’t find that marriage either. Do you have a death certificate for the earliest death of the couple which may verify if the marriage is a possibility?
Off Ancestry .. a distant family Is also doing the family tree. I’ll look into the death certificate. I think there is one for Andrew Smythe. Thank you
The marriage date is off Andrew Smyths daughters birth certificate

That is only marriage record I could find
That one is to Agnes Drake, reference no. is 1892/1715
Thank you Jay, that rules that one out. Pity they don’t put bride on it too!

I tried searching other years including your 1871, no luck either no

Thank you for trying
