I am currently researching the DONOGHUE family, which one branch of spent
time in Tasmania.
Firstly thank you again, Frances, for finding the father of this family,
Walter Henry's date of death for me.
His son, Maxwell, born in 1912 in Moree, NSW moved to Tassie something after
1936. By 1953 he was living at Mowbray with his wife Kathleen. A search of
NSW BDM'S has not located a marriage for him, so I presume he married in
Tassie. I have been to the state library in Sydney and they only hold BDM's
for Tassie up until 1919.
Is there anyone on the list that can access BDM Indexes for Tassie later
than this? I am unsure of what info your indexes provide, NSW's BDMs only
give you a year and district and the registration number, which if Tasmania
is the same would be better than nothing.
His full name is Maxwell Walter DONOGHUE, wife's name Kathleen Annie (or
Anna) ?, would have married somewhere between 1936 & 1953. They had a son
Robert who starts to appear on the electoral rolls in 1968, so he would
have been born around the mid 1940's.
Hope someone out there can help.
Can SKS pls help with details of the family of John WILLIAMS 1860-1901 and
Emily QUIN 1861-1937.
Children still alive in 1937 were Ella Mary born 1884 Port Sorell;
Lawrence Percy (known as Percy) born 1888 Mersey,
Cecil Roy (known as Roy) born 1889 Port Frederick, and Pearl (Mrs Cyril
And what happened to another daughter Harriet Malvina born 1892 Port
Hi, Does anyone have a John Spaulding with Etty Dunn, maybe she married
John Webster in 1849. and then had a child to John Spaulding??
Elizabeth Ann Spaulding born 1863 to John Spaulding and Etty Dunn.
Does anyone have knowledge of the beginnings of John Spaulding in Tasmania
Once and for all
Its the English language, after all.
FREE simply means "free" and the consequences of what that effectively means depends on the context. It might mean free just now or always free. It's context dependent.
No rules, just context. It's not an exact term, just a description.
So everybody's right, but what free means in the context of the enquirer's original question depends on what free means in that particular document or series of documents to which the enquirer was referring.
Only one thing is absolute, it doesn't mean NOT FREE, unless of course there is an error in the document.
Nice to hear from you again. I don't have any specific knowledge but deaths in
mines in those days were unfortunately not uncommon and not treated with the
same alarm as they are today. Therefore your Walter may have died in an
"everyday" accident, as opposed to it being a major incident.
There should have been an inquest though; these are at Tas Archives. I'm going
in on Saturday & will see if there's one been indexed for him.
The Zeehan & Dundas Herald would probably have reported the accident; this is on
microfilm certainly here in Tas and may be in the Mitchell Library, if you are
lucky. The Z&DH has had b, d & m notices indexed; again, look for this in the
gene part of the Mitchell Library.

Interested in families in Sorell, Tasmania
Thanks so much..it has helped a lot, especially to clarify where the name Sweetingham comes from in regard to this particular William Williamson. I think I may be able to add a little to the information on the William Wiliamson and Robert Williamson that Merle Pinch writes of, too.
I was Googling today for Port Albert Williamsons, as my Ramsay Williamson and the Thomas Williamson I mentioned earlier moved to Tarraville, which is just inland of Port Albert, in Gippsland. I found the following on the Heritage Victoria website, listing a number of Victorian shipwrecks including this ship, built (possibly)by Charles Williamson and part owned by William Williamson.
"SYLVANUS Sylvanus Channel, Port Albert,Year Construction Started 1843, Date Lost 2JUL1850, Description: Wooden sailing Rig: Schooner, Masts: 2, Length: 73.9
Built: Australia, Builder: Charles Williamson ? ,Voyage Details, Date of Loss: 2JUL1850
Cause of Loss: Wrecked
Owner: William Williamson of Hobart, Henry Brock of Hobart ,Cargo: 40 cattle, butter, tallow Voyage: Port Albert to Hobart, History Outward to Hobart with a cargo of livestock, the schooner Sylvanus ran ashore at Port Albert in the channel that now bears its name. A new schooner, the Mary Ann, was chartered to salvage the remains of the Sylvanus but was wrecked while loading salvaged material."
Now to tie together 'your' William Williamson senior with his brother Robert, and 'my' William Williamson! That would confirm a link through marriage to your William Alexander Sweetingham Williamson. Oh the complicated webs they wove!
It's all still possible that 'your' William is also 'mine' as Sinclair and Ramsay were in Hobart in 1832, and Ramsay was 45 years of age when he married Susannah Mansfield in 1840 - both their presence in Hobart when William senior married in 1836, and Ramsay's age 'fit'. It looks as though I need to have a look at the witnesses to all of these Williamson marriages, and the births as well. (I've only been mulling over these possible connections rather than actively researching them until very recently, when I found yet another connection to the Kingston Williamsons and my Kingston Mansfields.)
Thanks again for all of this information,
The ship "Letitia" (700 tons, Captain Clements) bound from Dublin to Hobart
Town was wrecked off St Jago in the Cape Verde Islands on 19 August 1828. No
loss of life and the passengers eventually arrived in Australia on other
ships. Could anyone tell me where I might find who those passenger's were
and how they sailed to other ports in Australia. I am looking for Matthew
Murphy and his son's John and Thomas.
Any suggestions would be appreciated

I might have missed some messages about the topic so forgive me if I am
repeating an explanation that may have already been given or if I am
adding to the confusion!
My ancestors (on all sides of the maternal/paternal) who were described
as 'free' had arrived in the Colony as "Free Settlers" according to
documents and family records. These families left England, Ireland or
Scotland to make a new life in the new colony of Australia or VDL which
would provide a better lifestyle for their families.
In the case of reports of the following couple of generations where a
member of the family had married a person who had arrived here as a
convict, served the sentence and elected to remain in the colony the
family accounts record them as '.... former' convict'.
I hope this helps?

Information taken from the TFHS Inc. Hobart Branch index show that
there is a headstone (or was at time of transcription) but comments said faint.

Hello, I am trying to obtain any information on Thomas WILSON he married Maria Rivers a convict on the 20/08/1828 in New Norfolk, Tasmania. They had to children Elizabeth and George both born at New Norfolk. Any information regarding Thomas would be appreciated.
Hello, I am trying to obtain any information on Thomas Graham and Ann Walton. All I know at present is they married on the 17th May 1847 in Tasmania.They had two children Mary Ann and Thomas Graham. Any help would be appreciated.
Here I am again, regarding my MANSFIELD family. Susannah MANSFIELD married RAMSAY WILLIAMSON in his home in Liverpool St, Hobart 1.7.1842. The witnesses to their wedding were William Williamson and Sinclair Williamson. A William Williamson and wife Henrietta had a son Ramsay in 1835 in Hobart, and Sinclair and Margaret Williamson nee Williamson (!) married in Hobart in 1841. These three WILLIAMSONs, William, Ramsay, and Sinclair, therefore appear to be related. Another Williamson, Thomas, also married in Hobart, and later moved to Tarraville in Gippsland, where Ramsay and Susannah Williamson nee Mansfield were already living, having moved in the mid 1840s.. Thomas Williamson named a daughter Clara Affia, and Susannah and Ramsay Williamson also had a daughter Affia, both named after Susannah's mother, Affia (actually Sophia) Mansfield, nee Chilvers. I wonder, was Thomas Williamson another brother/relation of Ramsay? Also, Ramsay and Susannah had a Sinclair, a William Ramsay, a Donald Sinclair (after Ramsay's father and his brother?) but no Thomas.
To add to the mix..there is a WILLIAM ALEX SWEETINGHAM WILLIAMSON who married Elizabeth Stanfield in Hobart in 1847, whose children and grandchildren were born in Kingston. These Kingston Williamsons seem have a number of connections to my Michael and Sophia/Affia Mansfield family, also in the Kingston area from 1817 onwards, and thus 'my' Ramsay Williamson. Is anyone researching either of these two William Williamson families? Or the families of Margaret Williamson, Thomas Williamson or Elizabeth Stanfield? (It's as bad as researching John Smith!)
Any clues at all would be useful. I have Ramsay's death certificate, and he was born in Caithness, Scotland to Donald and Elizabeth Williamson.. and also, Ramsay was living at Kingston in 1833.
I guess this is as much a muddle to you all as it is to me..sorry, but hopefully someone has a connection to one of these people,
Hi, I am currently researching a branch of my family tree, The DONOGHUE'S
One member of this family so I have been led to believe died in Tasmania,
problem is no body can tell me when.
His name was Walter Henry DONOGHUE, born in 1884 at Uralla NSW
He married Queenie May JAMES in 1911 in Moree, NSW and they had a son
Maxwell Walter DONOGHUE born 1912 Moree, NSW
His son, Maxwell, moved to Tasmania sometime after 1936. I have been able to
locate him on the electoral rolls in 1953, living in the Division of Bass,
Sub Division of St. Leonards at an address 24 Foch Street, Mowbray
When Maxwell's mother, Queenie, died in 1948 at Bondi, NSW it appears his
father, Walter, went to live with him in Tasmania. His father does not
appear on the NSW electoral rolls after 1950.
Maxwell left Tasmania around 1968, ( he appears on the Tassie electoral
rolls up until 1968, living at the same address as he did in 1936) and
returned to Inverell, NSW where he died in 1974.
I can only presume that his father died sometime between 1950 and 1968, when
his son left Tasmania.
So, as I have never done any Tasmanian research before, and live in Sydney,
NSW, where do I go from here.
I am hoping some kind person can point me in the right direction.
Hi List. Its been some two years since we started looking into William
Coghlin/Coughlan but sadly dates and places do not match, so its back on the
road again to look a bit farther into it all and cross check to see if
someone else may fit the frame. my thanks to all for your support and help
along the way, I will keep you posted on any new developments, as always any
help, advice is most welcome.
Wonder if anyone knows the current email address of Margaret someone , may have been Szalay ?? I sent an email to her but it bounced as it is no longer current
Ps Her email address is on most of the material concerning the HARRIS and WEYMOUTH families
i've been watching the emails about the mining disaster of 1912. Does anyone know of any other accident that could have happened in 1910.
I have Walter Charles Devine d.1910 at Mt Lyall.
Hoping for a lead...
