Triple Wedding – TAYLOR 1873

April 19, 2016

It seems we have a triple wedding in the family!

My great great grandmother JANET YOUNG (former married name McEWAN/McEWEN) married JAMES TAYLOR on 01 October 1873 at Broken Creek, near Benalla, Victoria. This was her second marriage.

Her husband’s two daughters’ marriages formed a triple wedding for the family. Both daughters married farmers from the local district.

MARRIAGES.

TAYLOR—McEWEN.—On the 1st inst., at Broken inst at Broken Creek, by the Rev. W. Gould, Mr. James Taylor, of Broken Creek, farmer, to Mrs. Janet McEwen, relict of Thomas McEwen, late of Fitzroy.

SANGAR—TAYLOR—On the 1st inst., at Broken Creek, by the Rev. W. Gould, Mr. John Sangar, of Broken Creek, to Miss Zillah Taylor, daughter of James Taylor, of Broken Creek.
