Hello- I have just subscribed to this list, so hope I am on the right trackbecause I would like to ask some advice please!
I am tracing a family in Hobart Tassie and I hope someone reading this list might be able to help me.
Ellen Beckett arrived as a convict from Ireland aboard the Kinnear II in 1849 and married a free man- James Taylor (a Dealer) in 1849.
I have all her convict records-Ellen is listed on the muster as being with her husband in 1850. According to her convict conduct record, she received her TOL in 1853.
However, I have just got a copy of her 1866 death certificate, and it has me
confused.....It lists her as 'Ellen Beckett uses Taylor', and her
occupation/status as 'Servant', while I see other women listed on this page of
death registrations as 'wife of ....'
So I am wondering why Ellen would be listed as 'Beckett uses Taylor', when
they were lawfully married (I have the permission to marry record, and certificate of marriage), and why she would be listed as a servant and not wife of James Taylor- Dealer. Can anyone tell me??!!
Also- Ellen died in the Hobart General Hospital and I am wondering if there would be any records surviving that might give further info on her family- she had a number of children and some were quite young (ranging in age from about 16 to 1.5 years old) when she died on 20th June 1866. I do not know what happened to her family after her death- I have found 3 of the children later married, but no sign of the eldest and youngest children, or indeed James Taylor her husband- despite sending for several deaths and wills.
I hope someone can help shed some light- thanks very much for your time!

Even though it may have been there all along, I was delighted to accidentally discover the Argus online at the NLA site from about 1848 to the mid 1850s... (I forgot to choose specific Tas. Newspapers when I was doing an advanced search, and hey presto, there it was.)
I would also suggest that people researching early Tasmania can find quite a bit in the Sydney Gazette from 1803 onwards...the year V.D.L's European settlement began, at Risdon and Port Phillip Bay. There's some especially useful material for the years missing from Robert Knopwood's diaries too..1809-1813.
Yahoo are closing their Geocities free web hosting service some time later
this year. Many genealogists use Geocities for their family web pages.
Those who do will need to find some other hosting service or use the web
space that is provided by ISPs as part of their service.

If you have any comments or questions please contact me direct rather than
putting it to the mailing list.
Many thanks to Wendy Brown for alerting me to this.

I'm having trouble identifying Elizabeth Anglim, who married 'my' William Briscoe, on March 21, 1833 in Hobart. They had a daughter Matilda, in 1834, who married William Foy in Launceston in 1849.
The only other Anglim I can find anywhere is Thomas Anglim, convict, who arrived on the Ruby in 1812, so I suspect Elizabeth might have been his child. He 'fits' in that he was in Sorell at one stage, and William Briscoe lived in Clarence Plains throughout his life. I've also found a Thomas 'Anglisn', born 1783 and died in Hobart, 1840, on the AOT names database, and a certificate (of freedom?) granted to Thomas Anglim per Providence to Sydney, in March 1835 (NLA).
Any help in identifying Elizabeth Anglim would be most gratefully received,
Good morning list
I was looking at some info on Ancestry this morning I am not sure about

Hi Pat, Have you checked the UK Census for 1841 and 1851? By the dates you
have he should show up in them.But as we all know it does not always turn
out so.I will check him out on Ancestry. Co at our local Library.

Hi Val, (Hi List),
William FORD and Ada LUTTRELL are my great-grandparents.
If you drop me a line, I can help you with this.
William FORD was born 1863 in Sorell/Carlton district. His mother
was Rebecca EVANS and father George BEZZANT.
Ada LUTTRELL is in a lonnnnnnggggg line of LUTTRELLS back to Dunster
Castle in Somerset (as u know Val from yr wonderful Castles in the Air).
Thanks to Gaylene and with Cara's help, i now have
Harry Heathcote b 1870,married aged 26 yrs,to Mary Magdelene Lehman on 13/6/1896 at Sassafras,Tasmania,and found he was born at Woodend Victoria,
on it,it states that Harry's parents were
George Heathcote and Ann Stone
allowing about 25 years would i be right in assuming George was born about 1845,it also states that Georg h was a farmer at Woodend Vic.
could someone please help me with Georg Haddon Heathcote please
Tis me of the ongoing saga with EVANS. And thanks much for the information and help I've gotten from the list - it has been great.
A further addition on Pte Robert EVANS b c 1813, of 'Calcutta'. It doesn't appear as if he's ours either. He died at only 52, which would leave our ancestors as only babies. However, his will, which I managed to get a copy of states that his assets would go to his wife and adopted daughter Ann.
Has anyone come across an Annie Hayes burial of death post 1930? I already know about Annie Elizabeth in Cornelian Bay in 1932. The Annie I'm looking for would have been born 1863 and may have been living past 1942.

Can anyone help me with a marriage between John Thomas Glenwright, born
Spring Bay 1842, and Frances Rose Scrivenor, also spelt Scrivener and
Servenor. The marriage could have been in 1876.
I've just joined and have recently been researching Roderick STRONACH
and Ann McGREGOR and their Tasmanian born daughter, Jane.
Some of the family rest at Longford Christ Church Anglican Cemetery,
Longford, Tas but Jane moved to New South Wales where she has
descendants living today.
I believe Roderick came on the "Thomas Lawrie" in 1831 as an
indentured servant of the VDL Co. and later appears on the census in
1842 in Longford having married Ann in Ross & Cromarty, Scotland and
that his Scottish family are among Tasmanian pioneers.
