Hi Rachel,

In the 1891 census , I located Peter Holland living on Tucka Tucka Station, in the county of Stapylton  NSW. Whoever transcribed the Census for online viewing recorded the location as Jucka Jucka.;  Yetman Station was also recorded on the same page and it seems these two stations are part of Yetman. All these stations belong to the Gwydir LGA.  Warialda is a town in the Northwest Slopes region of New South Wales, Australia, in Gwydir Shire. Situated on the banks of Warialda Creek, the town's name means "Place of Wild Honey.

In this census Peter has 2 males and 2 Females residing there.  Next line shows a James Hildrew  residing with 1 male and 3 females listed. This would be worthwhile pursuing James' death in 1916 at Warialda gives his parents names as John and Rose. (possibly Elizabeth's brother).

Meanwhile little can be found in this quick search on Peter ,the  1913 census has Elizabeth, Peter and Peter John, living at Boggabilla, Gwydir.

There are two Peter John  Holland's dying in Queensland, the first in March and the other in May 1948. and looking at the census, it seems these could be from the Walrialda area .Closer scrutiny shows that Peter John Holland who died 8 May 1948 in Queensland has mother Elizabeth Hildren and father Peter  (QLD BDM  1948/B016472).

Now I also found another Elizabeth Hildrew who married  a Donald McPherson in 1920 and she came from Queensland, she possibly is a niece to your Elizabeth.  Her obituary can be found at OBITUARY (1929, November 26). Glen Innes Examiner (NSW : 1908 - 1954), p. 4. Retrieved May 3, 2017, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article180834940

Hope this is helpful

If you haven't already, you should obtain a copy of their marriage certificate which should give details of their birthplace & both parents names.

You can search NSW & QLD births, deaths & marriages online. You can narrow down the date fields to find the actual date.

The funeral notice for Peter John Holland in 1948, is on TROVE, and a photo of his headstone is at Australian Cemeteries Index

This appears to be the headstone for Peter Holland who married Elizabeth Hildrew. The death entry gives his parents name as Peter & Ann. There is a baptism/birth entry in 1855 in NSW with parents Peter & Anne Ref. #3693/1855 V18553693 72.

I did further checking as Vivian suggested to you. Peter Holland who died in 1929 in Queensland has the parents Peter  Holland and Ann Collins, this corresponds to the baptismal  names  Vivian found.

If you search in QLD BDM and enter Holland , no first name and then Peter  and Ann as parents, it will give you the death dates of 3 of Peter and Elizabeth's children. You will notice discrepancies in the spelling of Elizabeth's Surname but it is her. Elizabeth died in 1948 in QLD.
