It discusses a person by the name of Mary Jane BAINES who married one Aldred TRUNDLE on the 6th May in 1875 in Brisbane after Aldred's first wife Mary Jane (nee SMITH) died on the 15th of October in 1872.
I know that she was born in Achill, Co. Mayo, Ireland in about 1849. Her father was Mathias and her mother was Jane (aka Elizabeth) McDowell. Her siblings were Thomas (?-1907 d. in qld), Lucy (abt. 1852-1936 d. in qld), Margaret Anne (abt. 1855-1943 d. in qld) and Mathias (1857-1944). They were all born in Achill. I cannot for the life of me find a death certificate for Mary Jane, as she may have remarried after Aldred Trundle. From the sounds of it he was quite a handful and was charged with several stealing crimes so perhaps they got divorced?
To-date no one has been able to find anything about the second Mary Jane (nee BAINES) after her marriage to Aldred TRUNDLE. They apparently did not have any children and neither her death nor any subsequent marriage has been found.
Aldred TRUNDLE died on the 28th of March in 1911 at Dunwich which is a small community on North Stradbroke Island in Moreton Bay.
