There is this entry for a death in Victoria, Australia in 1924:

William CALVERT age 71

Birth year: 1853

Death year: 1924

Father's name: Calvert John

Mother's name: Jane Coulson

Death place: Bdale ( ? Bairnsdale)

State: Victoria

Registration No: 7958

But there is also a marriage entry for "William Coulson CALVERT to Mary WHITE" in 1874 in Tasmania (registered in Victoria #3978.)

I have not been able to locate a marriage in Victorian records for your William to Mary Ann Smethurst. You have not included a year in the above details.

Which state were their children born ?

William Charles Calvert married Mary Ann Smethurst in 1880 (14 OCt) in Yallock Victoria. Williams marrige certificate may be listed as Charles Calvert as he often went by his middle name as did his son James Vernon who married Ethel Ruth Cook. James Vernon was born in Cranbourne Victoria so I presume William Charles (b.1857) lived in the area.

Thankyou for your help

p.s. you are researching the australian birth death and marriage registrys? Do you have to pay to search these or is thier a free website I can acess!

Thanks again

I found the marriage in 1880 "Charles CALVERT & Mary Ann SMITHURST."

Both Ancestry & Find My Past have BMD indexes for Victoria.

The Victorian government website which includes searchable indexes (also a PAY site)

NSW & QLD both have FREE sites.

I will send you a private message with more details.

Thanks Vivian,

Sorry I haven't replied earlier!!!

I searched the Vic and Tas Registers for thier marraige and couldn't find it :(

Do you know if the marriage was in Vic?


Thankyou for your help!
