1895 Marriage of Alfred Ernest Hall and Bridget Ann Moloney

The marriage for Alfred Ernest Hall and Bridget Ann Moloney took place in 1895 at St Vincent de Paul's Catholic Church in Redfern NSW. Bridget's father John Moloney lived at 110 Pitt St Redfern, and several of his children married in this church.

Alfred was born in Yass NSW in 1870, but moved to Sydney as a young man, matriculated at Sydney University on 11 Apr 1890 and graduated with a BA degree on 8 Apr 1893. By the time Alfred was married two years later, he lived in Grafton NSW where he was a school teacher, 600 km north of Sydney. By late 1896 when their first son Norman was born, Alfred and Bridget were living in Dubbo.

As Bridget was under 21, her father had to approve her marriage. The witnesses were Mary Moloney, Bridget's sister, and Marino Petrich, who married Mary in the subsequent year. Marino Petrich was from Austria originally, and was abt 40 years Mary's senior.
