Riley, John (1822–1907)

I have been unable to find a marriage listing in the  NSW births, deaths and marriage index. As Catherine Reynolds husband, John Becket, had not died by the time Reynolds and Riley started cohabiting perhaps they did not marry.

John's parents arrived as convicts. His father John Riley arrived on the Rolla in 1803 and his mother, Margaret Bryant, arrived on the Speke in 1808.
