Sons birth certificate in 1877 indicates born Dorsetshire England and aged 45. Further information on this certificate leads me to believe that he was previously married and already had 2 children (Sarah 21 and George 18). He came to Australia at some time between approx 1832 and 1876, but I do not know how, when, or if his first wife and children came as well

Marriage certificate shows married in Sth Aust 1876 to Sarah McGee (nee McDonald).

Hello,

A Transcript of his marriage to Sarah McGee nee McDonald on the 30 Nov 1876, records John as born c1832, Bachelor, son of John Parsons -  married to Sarah McGee nee McDonald, born c1847, widow, daughter of Sandy McDonald

Source: South Australia Marriages 1842-1937, Ref 109/280, viewed on Findmypast.co.uk

Sarah's marriage to Patrick McGee on the 31 May 1859 at Robe, lists her father as Alexander McDonald, and her year of birth as 1840.
