Robert DUDGEON and Elizabeth MAITLAND were bonded migrants who arrived
in Tasmania in 1857 on the "Forest Monarch' from Scotland. They married
a year later in Launceston and had four sons and two daughters. The
family lived at 'Hampden' near Deddington and later at Lilydale where
Robert was a blacksmith.
Names associated with the family are JOHNS, DUNTON, DROUGHT, UNDERLINE,
BEECROFT and WINCH.
Is anyone researching this family?

I am putting together the story of my mother's early lifeat the Forth and
At 105 she is still very much with it but the name of the vessel that she
travelled on overnight from Strahan to Hobart in late August 1916 escapes
She thinks it was the "WAIKI" but she remembers the fare was 5 Pounds.
Any info would be of great assistance and, of course a photo of the vessel
would be fantastic
My final words too. Not wanting to drag this out but it's the earliest I
could get to the library to check the most reliable source on word meanings.
And why am I bothering? Guess I didn't escape from the science dept of the
local uni fast enough :) A basic idea of science - look at the available
evidence, does it support or negate your idea? If it supports it, keep hold
of that idea for now, if it negates it, then the idea is tossed.
That's how I approach my history research. Add to that reliability of
source (you going to believe the tale Great Aunt Mary spun you or the death
certificate AND newspaper report that say otherwise?)
In the case of this "phrase", giving the evidence presented (and taking
into account what unassigned convict women actually did.....) and lack of
any concrete evidence for the opposing argument; I think the support should

I can't speak specifically about the Examiner, but in principal, if you go to the State Library and ask there about the location of Examiner in QLD, they should be able to look at a publication referred to as the "Union List of Newspapers in Australian Libraries" (I don't think that's the actual title, but librarians refer to it as the Union List). It is aeons old these days, but it gives locations of hard and micrographic copies of newspapers in all sorts of libraries. Even though the Examiner is not at the SLQ, you might
find it in a tertiary institution near you, perhaps. If there is nothing in the Union List, something might have been acquired since the date of the List, so then you should ask the State Library of Queensland to locate it for you - that's what librarians are for, so get them to do the work.

l am new to the list and have just found my rellie in Tasmania. Where in
Tassy l dont know.
Could someone please do a death lookup for me
Their details are:
Charles DISNEY Age 25 married Sarah DARLEY Age 19 3 May 1844 Tasmania.
This couple had children both in Tasmania and Victoria and l have not been
able to establish their deaths. l am not certain but l think l may have a
convict connection here.
Havn't got that far yet, still doing the Tasmanians but who knows? I shall make a new Malley/Meally file and let you know if anything comes up. Hope your's can spell better than mine!

Hi to all listers
My g.g.g.grandparents came from Ireland (don't know where) or what ship, probably c. 1840 with several children, settled in Stanley and had more family.
They were James & Elizabeth MALLEY or MEALLY, depending on what day it was!! From various BDM's, the name is quite changeable - I doubt they could read or write which might explain.
I have looked and looked but cannot find anything about them. I don't think they were convicts.
Can someone more experienced suggest a website.
Thank you for a wonderful site
Pam Bell, Melbourne and freezing.
There are a published set of indexes of BDM's from the Examiner newspaper put out by the Launceston
Gene Society - my guess they may be at the QSL but probably not in the newspaper section. Otherwise
I would try your local Gene Socy, or take a trip to the Albert & Gold Coast Gene Socy at Nerang. I
know they have a full set because I have used them. The indexes provide a precis of the BDM
advertisment, not the actual advertisment itself.
Good Luck, Muzz ....... A KIWI on the Gold Coast of OZ

Does anyone know of indexes or archives of the Examiner newspaper that are
