I do not know if this is the information you seek, but my GGG-Grandfather was John Wells KNIPE born 1812 in Nottingham, Eng.
His parents were:
William KNIPE & Maria WELLS
John Married Mary Anne BRAMHALL in Sydney, Australia on the 04/03/1857. I am having a hard time trying to find informnation on his parents. John was 45 when he married Mary Anne 23. If you could shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it. Kindest regards,
