I'm afraid that with so little information, and such common names, we have very little chance of identifying these people.

I take it from what you say, that Helen and Bryan were not married.
There certainly seems to be no record of a marriage in England, Wales, or Scotland.

Where was Mathew born? In what year was he born?
Roughly when or where were Helen and/or Bryan born?
How long ago is "many years ago"?
Where in Australia did they live?

You say Mathew's mum "is" Helen Brown - does that mean she is still living?
