Hi Freya,

From the divorce record I can see that he was married in Gateshead-on-Tyne, Durham, ENGLAND and that his first child was born in Manchester, ENGLAND.

Hope this helps.

May I mention that the Colonial Database of Tasmania includes submitted information rather than just official records.  Except where indicated by '(AO)', the family links in the database have not been made by the TAHO and we are not therefore able to guarantee their accuracy. Links made by the National Heritage Foundation have been built up from a diverse range of sources which have not themselves been checked. The database is no longer being updated and TAHO cannot accept any further corrections.

May I mention that Vic BDM documents are considered to be among the most informative around the world for family history purposes.  The d.c. may well include a response to the question "how long in the colonies/states" as well as info re his birth, parentage, marriages, children etc

Where did you source Walter's place and year of death?

There is no death for a Walter COLLINS in 1922 in Brunswick, Vic.  The 1922 death is for a Walter COLLINS who was married to a Margaret MURRAY and according to his obituary, lived in the Geelong district for most of his life.  This Walter is interred in the adjacent grave to his wife at the Geelong Cemetery.  This is possibly his arrival in Geelong.

COLLINS Walter
Date:   17 Jun 1854
Place:   Geelong
Comment Age 2
Geelong & District Assisted Immigrants
Ship CONWAY

-------------------------------

Did your Walter COLLINS in Tasmania spend time in gaol?

Seven days in gaol for refusing to pay a fine for assault.  Surely it's your man as Nathan  HETHERINGTON was present.

Cando,
  Yes that'll be he!
Thanks for sorting out the right Walter Collins for me, Walters family also later on lived
in Geelong so hence confusion on my behalf... Now not sure where he died, but his son did spend sometime in QLD so may look there ;D
