I am sorry I accidently deleted the email from the lady that wanted to know about the Invercargill Post Office. I remembered yesterday that I had a letter from a:

The letter was dated 1996. I cannot get on the web to check the address as it seems to be extra busy tonight so you might like to try yourself

Hello could SKS please tell me if St John's Church Newtown is still
standing. I am visiting Tassie next week and would like to see this church
as my ancestors were married in it in 1844. Also where perhaps would a child
be buried who died in district of Hobart in 1844. How many cemeteries would
there have been this early. Mant thanks El C
I subscribed to the Genealogical Research Directory this year and as a result received an email from an Historian/Publisher who tells me she has published a book on Irish Convicts. My interest in this book is she mentions she has one page dealing with Ann Gorman and Joseph Flood. I just wanted to let those of you who are researching Joseph Flood in particular, that she has the details from the Irish Newspapers of the two crimes of Joseph Flood, so you may be interested in the book. I haven't viewed it and have been told only 200 out of 700 are left. She has sold some to Universities, so must be worthwhile. As you know we haven't as yet found anything in Ireland on Joseph as yet. Would be interested if anyone of you have seen this book and your opinion of it. To do mainly with Irish Political convicts.
I've lost your email address. Would you contact me please, Bev is also
trying to contact you.

Please can anyone living in New Norfolk help me. I am looking for the grave/headstone of ELIZABETH CULLEN, died 15 March, 1836. Her husband was JAMES BRYAN CULLEN and her daughters were SOPHIA, CATHERINE and ELIZABETH.
I have been in touch with Derwent Valley Council who told me that ELIZABETH CULLEN (the elder) is buried in St. Matthews cemetery, but her headstone was moved (!) to Stephen Street cemetery. If anyone lives locally and it wouldn't be too much trouble, and they feel like a wander around the cemetery, could they try to locate her for me. Apparently she is listed in the burial register as ELIZABETH CULLUM, but the date of death and age are correct. There was no reference. If the headstone is still in existence, I would love a photo. Please email me privately if this is possible and I will send you my mailing address.
Thanks in advance,
I am looking for JOHN LILLEY PEARCE, ELIZABETH PEARCE and JAMES LILLEY PEARCE. JOHN and ELIZABETH married in Hobart on 29 January 1821. Their son, JAMES, was born on 26 October, 1821. Their daughter, LOUISA LILLEY PEARCE was born on 16 July, 1825.
I cannot find any references to JOHN, ELIZABETH or JAMES beyond that point. LOUISA married JOSEPH CROUCH in Tasmania in 1846 - presumably some family was still around, however I have been unable to locate any firm information. Their first daughter ELIZA CROUCH was born 27 December, 1845.
Could some kind person tell me if parents' names and status are recorded on marriage certificates of that date. Is there anyone who can look up the marriage record of LOUISA PEARCE and JOSEPH CROUCH for me, to see whether their parents are mentioned (JOSEPH's parents are a bit of a mystery too). LOUISA and JOSEPH moved to Victoria between 1848 and 1852. Maybe the parents moved too.Thanks in anticipation.
I am a new list member requiring a little help. In 1913 my grandparents Robert GIBSON , Isabella WHYTOCK and family left Lanarkshire Scotland. The family story is that they called into Tasmania on the way to New Zealand and they visited a family member. An elderly aunt thinks that the persons name was
Elizabeth WHYTOCK. I don't know her married name. I would be very pleased to hear from anyone who has a WHYTOCK in their family tree.
Thanks in anticipation Regards Pam Osborn.
Dear Graham and Helen,
I believe both Abraham Rheuben and Philip Marks were jewish convicts.
Philip Mark sentenced in 1822 and came to VDL. His family came to VDL in
Abraham Rheuben sentenced in 1827. He arrived in VDL in 1828.
This information comes from a book I bought at the Jewish Church in
Sydney some years ago. "The Forefathers A Dictionary of Biography of
the Jews in Australia 1888-1830" by John Simon Levi pub.1976
If you have trouble finding this book at your library mail me back and I
will send both biographies to you.

The T.A.M.I.O.T. index on microfiche may show his place of burial. Have
you checked the newspaper copies on microfilm for a death notice and/or
obituary ? There may be a notice in "The Examiner".
Does his marriage certificate indicate status of Free, or a ship
name ? In case he was a convict.
There about 8 Thomas Woods listed on the Convicts Index CD, but none show a
middle name of Mason.
Mason seemed to be a common middle name among the Woods in Ringarooma, does
it refer to a family surname or the occupation of mason ?

I had a look for you on the CD but it seema there wasn't a 65 St Georges Sq
in 1881. I could only locate even numbers in St Georges Square. 64 St
Georges Square was an Inn the "Hand in Hand" William and Mary Tormey and 66
was inhabited by Charlotte and Sophia Gill. As all other streets had even
and odd numbers listed togther it seems that St Georges Sq did not have a

Was your William a convict when he married? If he was he would have
had to apply for permission to marry and this permission will record
his convict no. Once you have his convict no this will give you the
details you need to get his convict record.

Christopher Koch is descended from one of the many Irish DEVEREUX families,
the same one I am. He apparently used some of the known family history
facts, but the story line is probably mostly fiction.
Two of the DEVEREUX sons did head off to the USA in the early 1800s, but
what became of them is not known.

I've read the "NOVEL" "Out of Ireland" by Christopher Koch, and was fairly
certain it was not based on fact at all, despite it purporting to be in

Julie M Skellern,
Can I help?
Susannah Mary YOUNG married Thomas Edward PRIEST in 1865. Susannah was born
to Rebecca Elizabeth BRADSHAW-JILLETT and William YOUNG on the 29th August
1843, and Thomas was probably born in 1842.
I am descended from another of Rebecca and William's children, Elizabeth
Rebecca, who married Thomas MEZGER. Two other siblings also married into
the HURBURGH family,
Emily Elvina married William Ringrose Devereux HURBURGH, and James Henry
married Frances Anne HURBURGH, his sister. Makes for a very convoluted
family tree, particularly when the MEZGER line also skipped a generation.
The BRADSHAWs are also interlinked with the YOUNGs and HURBURGHs.
The Tasmanian Pioneers Index is very confusing with these families - there
are individuals with up to four entries, Rebecca Elizabeth BRADSHAW-JILLETT
being one. She is entered as Rebecca twice, and Elizabeth twice (her
original records indicate only Rebecca(h)). With help from other sources, I
believe I have sorted out the "mess".
Would be happy to share my results - a GEDCOM file would probably be the
best. Send me an email.

I've just come across Thomas Edward PRIEST as part of the family that I am
researching. I know very little about him, except that his parents were
James PRIEST and Mary HEARNE. He had 13 siblings, born between 1827 and
1853 (info obtained from Taslink so may not be accurate!). Occupation:
Solicitor. It is believed that he made at least one trip to Dunedin, NZ.
He married Susannah Mary YOUNG, daughter of Captain William Young and
Elizabeth Rebecca Jillett.
If anybody else is researching Thomas I would love to make contact.

I know this isn't a Tas query but does anyone have access to 1881 census
