Rose  - I'm not sure either so I just clicked on the report to Moderator in the corner of the post and asked for help - I bet you will find they will fix it very soon.  (not even sure if this is the right thing o do - but it WILL get results one way or the other!)

So - Welcome to Rootschat which is a very good thing to stumble into   :D - I did just that at the beginning of last year and haven't regretted a minute of it!   Very helpful crew indeed they are!

Hi Wiggy,
I'm confident the Moderator or his minions will enable the request to be fulfilled. After all, when I initially 'stumbled' in, I'd clicked Herefordshire instead of Hertfordshire - and the error had been attended to and corrected in no time at all, which I appreciated... Rose

It's a geographical connection, Wiggy, not a blood link... But my family name was Turton... Rose

Hi there

I am interested in the chat Re Matthias Gaunt. He is my Great-great-great grandfather (or something like that!). His son, Charles Gaunt was my grandfather's grandfather. I was married in St. Mathias Church Windermere, Tasmania. So I would love to learn more about him and his family. I was just wondering why you have this interest in him?

I heard (some time back) - that someone at Deakin University, Australia was doing a thesis on him.

Cheers

Rebecca

Hello Rebecca,
Lovely to hear from you.

My interest in Matthias Gaunt came about in a circuitous way.

I'd been looking at the Tamar River and its early, little river ports, which included the beautiful location, Windermere.

Having written some poems based on the church - and Dr. Gaunt - the intrigue of the story seeded itself.

When I dropped information and photographs from my book into the local store, it occurred to me from the conversations I had with people there that perhaps some of the local community didn't realise what a rich treasure they actually have in the geographical location of the hamlet, Windermere - and in one of the the founding fathers, Matthias Gaunt. This has set me off on a new quest, to record some of the history in a way that's different from what's already been produced. From the gb's of information I have already collected, I believe this is something I can accomplish...

I am going to concentrate on the pivotal couple and their issue, to the point of the passing of the first generation, which will take me just over the cusp of the 19th century and in to the 20th century.

I emphasise I don't plan for this to be the creation of a genealogical tree, but rather a broader sweep of story of one family and its achievements in a burgeoning (yet isolated) colony - Tasmania.

Cheers... Rose
