England & Wales Criminal Records record George as Wrankmore as do NSW State Records.  However, his marriage to Eliza Morrow 27/4/1849 clearly states RANKMORE.
His 1st child George William born 1849 and the following 7 children (of 13) that I can find on NSW BDM, are Rankmore.
Was the name Wrankmore simply a clerical/transcription error in the first instance, carried forward in official records or or did George Anglicise his surname?
