I am unsure if the the death date for Francis of 1891 is correct for him.
While it is possible that 2 Francis Wye’s died in 1891 I would really like to know where convict Francis died.
I have a Francis Wye who died 1891 in Young, NSW but he was an infant, born 1890 in Young, NSW.
This Francis was the son of William Henry Wye 29 Jun 1884-22 Jul 1945(Grandson of convict Francis). The father of William Henry Wye was Francis Boyle Wye (4th and youngest child of convict Francis) 13 Mar 1846-09 Nov 1913. I have details of places and other children also.
My William Henry Wye b.30 Dec 1839, Kent St, Sydney. NSW - d. 01 Dec 1899, Albury, NSW was the eldest child of convict Francis Wye and Annie Clare (nee Martin). He was my 2x Great Grandfather, so Francis b.1814 was my 3x Great Grandfather.
I hope this is of interest.
