Hi Shane I'm in Adelaide and for about 8 years now I have been have been doing research for people requriing information about ancestors who came to S.Aus in the 1800's.I was in the Mortlock library yesterday and had a look for info. for you. The following is what I managed to find:-
1. Edward Johnson Cotton aged 20yrs, marital status not recorded son of William Cotton married 19/10/64 to Mary Harriet aged 19yrs, single, daughter of Robert Baker at St. Margaret Church, Woodville Dis. Adelaide ref b60 p221

Adel. to Robert Baker and Rebecca Gieseking. ref.b2 p123. symbol 'XS" denoting this record is cross-referenced with supplementary information on the birth certificate. (Harriet's birth is also registered under the name Harriet Gieseking, daughter of Rebecca Gieseking. No father's name recorded.

2nd MARRIAGE OF ARTHUR ALFRED COTTON.
Arthur Alfred aged 40yrs, symbol "D" son of Robert Cotton married 30/10/1937 to Laurel Ivy Frost, 19yrs, single, daughter of Cyril Arthur Ruthven Frost at Rhaiadore Grammar School, Semaphore Dis.
