The NSW birth deaths and marriages records show his birth year as 1816, however it is believed that this anomaly was due to a bad figure on the original handwritten register also his parents were not married until March 1818.
He married to Jane Ann Christie on 13/08/1839 in Bathurst. Jane was born on 22/10/1819 in Parramatta and baptised on 21/11/1819. Her father, William Christie, was overseer for government cattle in 1815 at Bathurst.
