Annie Jones lived in the late 1800s, I know she lived in Western Australia because that is where my grandfather was born.

Do you have your grandfather's birth certificate from WA? I believe it will tell when and where his parents were married and from that you can get his parent's marriage certificate, either from WA or the UK. It's possible that the marriage certificate will at least have Annie's father's name, and possibly also her mother's name as well.

A search of the WA marriage index doesn't show any Bray's marrying a Jones between 1860 and 1900. Here's the link for the index search.
