    Notes 
    • It is possible that this marriage, and the one of Charles Wilson and Margaret Berry was a double wedding, and that Charles and Ellen are brother and sister. A search of the Queensland historical births doesn't show them as being born in Queensland. A search of the Queensland shipping records shows a family of Thomas and Jane Wilson arriving on the Light Brigade on 18 May 1863, with children James (8), David (15), Ellen (16), Charles (18), Lizzie (21), Fanny (23) and Samuel (25). This family would fit the hypothesis.
