Hi ppl...I also have a Margaret Risk to puzzle over-but she is in fact a Berresford.
The earliest Risk's I have are a Thomas Risk who married a Margaret Berresford in 1858.
They went on to have several children.
I dont know where they come from...was hoping that other Australian Risk's could tell me lol.
Margaret Risk nee Berresford died in 1874 in Sydney and her records say that her father was aged 35years (dont know if that was at her birth or what) and her mother died in Sydney also.
Anyone know anything?
