Trying to find out information on my 4th Great Grandfather. I know who he married but not sure when he came to Australia, and I know his father was also Richard Gee from the death registration but not sure of his mother.

Best answer

His death notice says he is a colonist of 60 years. (Family Notices (1891, February 26). The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957), p. 1. Retrieved July 6, 2018, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article8478511)

You have his marriage as the Richard who married Elizabeth Sopp in 1847, however, Frederick, John Henry and Elizabeth Gee were born prior to this. Is it possible he was married to an Elizabeth prior to Elizabeth Sopp? Or there could be two Richard and Elizabeth Gee couples.

I'll keep looking anyway.
