From on Saturday, 23 May, 2009
Yes you have the right family with, Joseph, Emily and James Edward. However John and Margaret (Toy) had two other children. Mary Elizabeth (born 1852 in South Australia ) appears to be their first child and their second child who they named, John, born in Castlemaine in 1854.
Iím a descendant of this son, John who married Mary Eliza (nee Mason. I have a terrific photograph of John and Maryís family sitting on our lounge room dresser, with my grandmother Florence standing at the back. (I remember her 80th birthday celebration when I was only a small boy).
Anyway, another piece of information I have is that John and Margaret (Toy) were buried at the Brighton Cemetery, Melbourne, but this remains unconfirmed and is taken from notes only that my mother gave me. These notes also identify the parents of John as being another John Wearne and Elizabeth (nee Miles) from Wendron, Cornwall but I canít find anything on them at all.
