Thank you for your replies, helps to update my family tree.

With baptism records showing Mary as daughter of Sarah Brain single woman and no fathers name recorded, not 100% convinced George Rickards was Mary's father, although Sarah married George within few months of the birth.....and the birth index states christian names as Mary Rickards and surname of Brain. Apparently not uncommon for the fathers name to be recorded as a middle name if the mother was unmarried. And of course when Reuben was born, he's recorded as a 'Brain' when you might have expected 'Rickards'?...again no fathers name recorded.

Thanks again,

Kind regards,
