Wedding Wednesday - Jessie Taylor and Alfred Smith

Jessie Taylor and Alfred Smith - 8 January 1921

My husband's grandparents, Jessie Taylor and Alfred Smith were married at the Presbterian Church, Marrickville, NSW, on the 18 January 1921. Alfred was a World War I veteran, who had experienced the ANZAC landing first hand. At the time of their wedding his occupation is described as a printer.  Jessie was employed as a clerk and prior to their marriage she lived with her family at Dolls Point, Sydney.

Jessie and Alfred spent their entire married life living in Tempe, NSW and raising their two sons and two daughters.


  1. Wondering if this Alfred Smith is Alfred Spencer Smith born in England? My great grandfather had a brother Alfred that went to Australia. Just curious. Thanks

  2. hi, sorry, no this Alfred Smith was born in Marrakville, NSW in 1892. Smith is such a hard name to research isn't.
    cheers Di

  3. Yes, very hard name to follow. Thanks for the quick reply.
