Beewasp, Gins and I are also in England but have accessed above Australian records via Ancestry worldwide.

A very useful site that anyone can access for free is Trove http://trove.nla.gov.au/ - the Australian newspaper archives (plus more). Here's a link to a newspaper notice for the marriage of Elizabeth May's parents:

and another

There is this user submitted tree on FamilySearch

Can't vouch for it's accuracy.
