OK so I'm quite excited because I've got my first certificate from Australia AND it states I've got Chinese ancestry! In July 1857 my gr gr grandmother Anne Maria Gunn, from Sussex, married Ah Luk from Canton China. His parents are listed as John Ah Luk and A Tan, shopkeepers, Little Burke Street, somewhere in Melbourne but probably near St Johns Church (CoE) as that is where the marriage took place. What other information can I now gather about them? I'm wondering if there was much stigma for a young 17 year old (she lied about her age & stated she was 21) to marry a Chinese in that time period. Any help greatly appreciated.
