Dear Lists, I am still searching for a Edward McDonnell /McDonald) who
arrived in Hobart with his wife Bridget, daughter Ellen and son John on the
Clyde 1833. This family just disappeared after arriving in Hobart. A son
Thomas born 1836 (on his wedding cert he said he was born in Hobart Van
Diemen's Land) I cannot find his birth. Thomas married Ann Malony in 1856 in
Victoria. I have searched every possible place but have not found a single
thing. Except for Thomas's marriage I would have decided they didn't stay in
Australia in 1833, even thought they may have continued back to England?????
Please can anyone help. I only call for help on the lists when I have come
to a complete stop and of late have had some wonderful information from all
The only information I have is a letter from England instructing that the
Captain of the Clyde be given 20 pounds by the Governor, for Edward and his
familie's passage to Tasmania.
