Looking for any information regarding descendants of the above.
I wonder if Mary Ann was born aboard ship, because the father, Thomas Hume
was discharged from the army in 1847 in Tasmania, but had a son in Kent in
June 1846. That is going to be difficult to determine.

I have a Mary Hume born in Tasmania between 1848-1851 according to her father's death certificate. There appears to be no registration of the birth, does this mean that the child did not survive long enough to be registered? A child born either side of that date was registered. Parents: Thomas Hume and Ann nee Kay. They lived on Maria Island. Thomas was a soldier until discharge in 1857 and remained for ? years before moving to the mainland.
Any information gratefully received.
I meant to include this site as well. It's from the Lincolnshire GenWeb site, but the historical information helps to understand the English non-conformist churches and their records (and their Tasmanian branches too).
Hello, Tas listers.
If you need to get some background on life in 19th century England, a great site is
The sections on social and political history (for convicts), and on the different religious denominations (for church registers) are very useful.
I have several lookups so will only post a few each day. If some kind soul could do lookups of Tas bdm, it would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know where Norfolk Place, Hobart Town used to be? It's not
there any more, and, Malcolm, I can't find it on the map you sent me of
Hobart c1850. I have several references to female convicts being
arrested at a house in Norfolk Place whilst absent without leave.

Could some one please tell me if this web site has been changed as I am unable to connect to it. I have a neighbor who lived in this area and he is keen to view all his relatives but I have not been successful .
Please can anyone tell me who and what the person was that Mount Bischoff
was named after? In Preston, Vic there are 4 parallel streets named Mount,
Bischoff, Tasman and James. They have nothing to do with Smith's discovery
of tin in 1871.
I am seeking any information on Michael O'Keefe who was born about 1818 in Dublin and transported to VDL on the Westmoreland 18/04/1838. He was apparently married to Sarah Johnson and had a daughter Mary Ellen born about 1851 and died in 1902, probably in NSW.
Still trying to find some information on Bridget Magoveran also...If some kind soul could help.

Does anyone have access to the Wynyard Church of England records. I am looking for a marriage for Rubina Alberta Slater, she was born July 9th 1899 in the Montague district and died aged Nov 2 1931 at Geelong Victoria so it could have been any time from perhaps 1917 to her death. Her surname at death was given as Abbott but it may be Abblit or Abblitt.I made contact with a person at Wynyard but as yet I have not had a reply so I am hoping some kind person can help. Thank you
Would someone please be able to tell me where I could find a list of people buried at Branxholm Tasmania . I am trying to locate a burial of a person who died at Branxholm Tas in 1916 but the undertaker was a ( looks like ) G A Kodman from Derby Tas. If the burial is not at Branxholm is there a cemetery at Derby Tas. As there was no death notice in the paper I have no way of knowing where he is. Hoping some kind person can help.I was given a contact for the Branxholm Cemetery Trust but it was for Branxholm Victoria.
Can someone advise how I get access to my ancestors convict records and what information is available.
He was originally transported to Norfolk Island per "Blundell" arriving 8 March 1844.
Transferred to Tasmania per "Lady Franklin" arriving in Launceston 30 August 1846.
