You really are terrific folks - thanks very much!!

sorry JB - no go with that link.   Not ours.

Many Thanks for the link Wivenhoe - I will try it (- probably tomorrow - got things to do this evening.) 

Sue - thanks for those extra names.  I saw than mistranscription  in Victoria  but only of one - not the other. 

I am thinking it is getting harder as we are gitting into territory where some are living.  We are chasing a family where the mother must have died recently I think and she didn't leave much knowledge behind - Her daughter is trying to piece things together.

The church in Tasmania built by the 'partiarch' of this Gaunt family is listed for sale to pay redress to child abuse victims - the parish is trying to stop the sale and some of the family are trying too.   
In November this year the church will celebrate 175 years. 

A distant cousin is trying to round up as many family as she can.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Thanks  Gerry - Pretty sure that is the first Sydney who was born 1826 and died 1900.  He was the son of the patriarch, and definitely a farmer.
 His father built the flour mill at Windermere.

When they keep calling their eldest son Sydney it does get confusing.

Wiggy.    :)
