This couple & their infant son arrived in Australia in 1939... Lived in South Australia. Does anyone have documented details of either of their parents George's father was a Wheelright. Elizabeth's was an Accountant according to their marraige certificate. Lots of theories on various trees,but they don't ring true upon investigation.. Many Thanks

You don't mention where they came from -- wouldn't that be where records on their parents would be found?

I believe you mean 1839, not 1939. The marriage certificate should name their fathers - what are their names and who were the witnesses?

You probably already know that as they lived and died in SA you will get very little info from any documentation.
