Oops. My mistake. Edward and Jane were married on 29 Feb 1836 according to the 1836 London, England, Marriages & Banns 1754-1921 Index and Pallots, Marriage Indexes for England 1780-1837.
Henry and Harriet Margaret are the only 2 children I've been able to find baptism records for so far. They're recorded on the Baptisms London, England, Births & Baptisms 1813-1906 Index and Pallot's Baptism Index for England 1780-1837.
I think the Strike name originates in Germany but at some point they moved to England.
The only thing I can think of for Jane at present is if the original church document for their marriage shows her father's name, but I don't know how to go about checking that. I've thought that Turnbull was a Scottish name but not sure how to go further with Jane at present.
Edward was a Gunsmith but changed his occupation to Agricultural labourer so that he could qualify for the Assisted Immigrant scheme (free passage) to Australia. Once he was here, he set up business as a vet/horse doctor in the Bendigo district - ie be near where all the gold miners were.
But Jane just has me totally stumped at present.
Thanks again for your help.
