To those who have helped with the DRAKE's this year, we Bradleys lost the listings of In/Out/Sent/files in our email lists so I cannot contact you. Some files were backed up so it wasn't all that bad.
Research to Date:
John DRAKE arrived on the Mooltan in 1854 (circa 1834) blacksmith age 20
Sarah TAYLOR (18) (785b) who arrived with her sister Martha TAYLOR (19) brother James (14) aboard the BOOMERANG in 1855
married in New Norfolk 18.01.1858
Two days prior (785a) lucky find this one!)
MARTHA TAYLOR married John Barker ILLSLOW (photo copied a bit blurred) 16.03.1856
JOHN DRAKE died in Evandale (328) age 62 from heart decease.
Where did John DRAKE come from?
All shipping records show Norfolk.
One family source states Sussex, but no John DRAKE in Sussex to fit the age, give or take a few years
I found a John DRAKE who does fits born in Norwich 23.07.1832 to John and Hannah DRAKE on the IGI.
1851 British Census shows all these facts gel.
There's a couple of Hannah's and a
John who is a Ag Lab living in Barrack Street Light Horse Yard Norwich.
Age 21. So he could have been training to be a blacksmith.
Was bought back to reality with
"This could not be your John DRAKE as there are no family members (England) on census and IGI with the same names as the family in Tasmania."
And don't we all know that they all have the names repeated and repeated..........HELP!!!!
Dona Bradley researching Dilworth DRAKE, Mansfield and Saltmarsh.
Born....Slaidburn near Clithero in Yorkshire to James and Catharine DILWORTH 1st July 1821
1841 Census...... confirmation James (55) Catherine (56) Matthew (20)
though no mention of his brother James that I can see.
York Assizes........16th December 1843 Matthew Dilworth accused and sent to Norfolk Island for allegedly 'administering poison with intent to murder'. He pleaded not guilty and stated that a George Smith only got two years.
Transported.........via Agincourt...........to Australia 9th November 1844.
>From what I can find in Australia these records seem a true account of Matthew's history.
The only thing that does not gel in all this is that on Matthew Dilworth's death cerificate he died by accidently suffocating in a ditch whilst having a fit age 73.
All other facts add up to the fact that he was 'Matthew Dilworth' convict who lived in Longford and married Catherine Mary (Kate) CARROLL in 1852.
My enquiry is:
Is there a place where I can obtain this record and/or any other relevant information on Matthew DILWORTH'S record of trial?
Newspaper, Dilworth family research,Internet site. Basically I am at a loss as to where to go from here.

Looking for information on Captain James Kelly (of Kelly's steps in Hobart)
who chartered the West coast of Tasmania between 1800 and 1850, looking for
any descendants of this man and his marriages, the first it is believed
was to an aboriginal lady, believe one was a Mary Watts or Toleman, but
cannot prove any of this. Going through a process of elimination.

I have found from my research (up to about 1840) names beginning with
'mac' or 'mc' etc. are often listed with the 'mac' after the main part
of the name.?
For example Bridget or her parents might be listed as 'Goveran Mc' or
something similar. Try various spellings, even unlikely ones. One
example I came across was of a chap called Harlow. I found him listed as
Arlow. He was a Londoner and may not have pronounced the H in his name.
Hope this is helpful.
>I am trying desperately to find any information on Bridget Magoveran.
Children to Frederick and Sarah are:-
Mary 6 June 1858 Reg Hobart Reg No 1559
Unnamed female 2 Nov 1859, Reg Hobart Reg No 2893
Unnamed male 2 Jan 1861 Reg Hobart Reg No 3950
Valentine 7 July 1865 Reg Hobart Reg No 7799
Frederick Flood 21 years married Sarah Mawdsley 18 years on 2nd April
1856 in Hobart . Reg No 197.
Help wanted: The Waverley arrived in VDL (Hobart Town) from Dublin on 25 October 1847. She was carrying female convicts, free women and children. I believe my ancestors where on this vessel.
Ellen (Alice) AGNEW and children John, Roseanna and Matilda. They sailed out to join their husband and father James AGNEW who arrived on the convict ship St Vincent in 1837.
I am unable to find any passenger list or evidence of them being on this ship. I have checked the surgeons journal, but it was no help.
Any assistance would be great, Kind regards Jan
I have sent this once/twice already but it was returned "undeliverable" so
I will try once more.
Frederick William FLOOD (b. Dublin 1835) and Sarah Ann MAWDSLEY (b.Lauceston
1839) married in Tasmania around 1856. They had several children in
Tasmania moved to Melbourne before 1869.
I am seeking any possible assistance in finding details of Sarah, the
marriage and the Tasmanian children. Frederick was an engineer, but I am not
sure if he worked in the Launceston area or elsewhere in Tasmania.
Hi folks again
It appears one of the Flowers I am searching for could have been a Private
in the 96th Regiment and buried on the Isle of the Dead 12 July 1845
according to Tamiot but I can't find his death registered, is this usual or
was it just not registered.
His name is Robert.
Are there any records available for those who were in the army in those
days. Is so are there any lists available to search in the local libraries
or do you need to go to the archives.
No James or Elizabeth Jane POLLARD, but an Edwin James and a Jane ??
No Elizabeth HICKS.
No YATES with full given names, but a few possibles with just first name ??

Do you mean Kings Bridge at Cataract Gorge? If so, the first span was built
in England in 1863 and transported to Launceston. But the second span was
built, identically, by local engineers in 1903. The first span has convict
brick footings, the second has concrete. At least that is what we were told
on a river cruise a couple of years ago.
Hope this helps,

Hi still looking for info re William Cherry
A William Cherry who may have been his father
married a widow Hannah Herbert in 1846. He was a butcher and she a dressmaker. He arrived free on the Woodman. She arrived on the Hindostan
but was free "by servitude"
They went to Melbourne in Jan 1852 on the Mariposa.

thanks to all for the replies about CAMERON and DOLBEY. I did receive some useful information but it didn't resolve all my queries, so I have another 'train of thought' to follow, and hopefully I might be able to resolve the problem with my Mary CAMERON...
I was wondering if SKS could tell me if there is a marriage record for Catherine, either her maiden name is Parker or Newton and she marries to become the other surname; Parker or Newton.
I am also looking for the possible death of her husband (either Newton or Parker)
if their were any children for this couple.
The marriage and children should be around 1830- 1845 in Tasmania, as well as the death of her husband.
Can anyone tell me when the Gorge Bridge, Launceston was actually built and

I realise this is a Tasmanian list, but this Website is a good central one for all types of references to anything we need to lookup for English Ancestors who came here to Tasmania. Including Gentlemans mag, Notes and Queries. You may find a tassie ancestor in one of those. To good to just let go.
I hope that you find it a friendly helpful place to be. The AUS-Tasmania mailing list is for the discussion of Tasmanian history and genealogy. If you have any problems please e-mail me, Meryl Yost, the listadmin, at AUS-Tasmania-Admin@rootsweb.com.
