David James Manzie born Scotland, 1818, married Mary Ann Atwell 1844 Ceylon.
Mary Ann was the daughter of James Atwell, who served in the British Army
in Ceylon and Mary or Ann. She was born England but all her siblings were
born in Ceylon, between 1840-1850. I believe her siblings remained in
David and Mary Ann emigrated to Australia between 1861 and 1864. They
settled in Victoria. I would love to learn more about their time in Ceylon.
Since Patrick served in the Army, and I see that you haven't applied for his

His wife Jessie also served
Another avenue for you, is to apply for his death certificate.. both Patrick
and his wife Jessie Clare are buried in Karrakatta cemetery Western
Patrick William Northway died in Cottesloe in 1977, aged 69 years and Jessie
Clare Northway died in Cottesloe aged 84 yrs in 1999.
Patrick and Jessie Clare DAILY married in Perth in 1941 and the Index number
to obtain their marriage certificate is Perth 2382
