  • Notes  Married:
    • The marriage was in Sydney because Caroline may well have been pregnant with Caroline May who was born only 3 months later. They were married according to the rites of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

      There was already a tenuous relationship between Richard and Caroline prior to their marriage.

      Caroline Chattin, the niece of Caroline's first husband, James Chattin, had married Thomas James Ruddell, the nephew of Caroline's second husband, Richard Ruddell.
