The Smith-Bullas Collection

Section of the registration of the 28th April, 1858 marriage of William Smith and Anne Bullas in "the house of Mr Bullas" at Little Bendigo in Ballarat.

William, aged 24 and a miner, signed the register whilst Anne, aged 22, simply made her mark.  Church of England Minister Rev C. Searle officiated.

Anne's stepmother, Elizabeth, nee Hammond, also makes her mark as a witness.  Elizabeth also is recorded as Anne's mother although Anne's true mother was her father David's first wife, Ann Hutchinson.
