"Joseph Bridge was married to Sarah Woodbury now called Sarah Bridge. Sarah had 2 children with James Purvey, the son was baptised James with James Purvey listed as father but he became James Bridge because as the story goes, Joseph Bridge had a bullock team and went away working, when he came home Sarah was always pregnant to another man but Joseph kept the children and named them Bridge, He did the same with the children Sarah had with Edward Craft as well, the boys name was Edward and when he got married he married as Edward Bridge. makes it difficult for people searching for the truth. I have put the Bridge Burley marriage register on the Hunter Valley Genealogy forum photo site, you could look at that there"
