Hi to the group,

Wound myself into a corner trying to help a workmate...

His ancestor Terence Guthrie came from Ireland to Australia and looks like as a free man.

The ship Donald Mckay [in December 1861] reports him as Terence Guttery age 21 =[1840] RC and  left Tipperary

He worked, Married and died 1922 in Tasmania. All the Tasmanian information is available however the different spellings of Guthrie seems to be our undoing.

There are a small number of trees on Ancestry, and I see they have all been caught by the same problem...one person reckons born 1838, however I think this a guess.

Would some kind person sort this little mystery out for us Please, to confirm Terences parents and village would indeed be a prize

Thankyou in Advance Rick in Australia
Terence Guthrie/Gutry/Guthar/Guttery born in 1840 in Tipperary married Catherine Fahy/Fahey 1865 in Oatland Tasmania...they had 9 kids in 15 years

Family History Beginners Board / General question Convicts to Tasmania Please
« on: Saturday 28 October 23 02:37 BST (UK)  »
Hi to the group

A general question re Convicts to Tasmania Please...

On the convict sheet for my neighbour there is much information written by the authorities for example..Tried, date, what for, how long, hair colour, eye colour height etc...My question is..

Who told the authorities his wifes name his Fathers and Mothers name and siblings names......Im guessing that this information was from the horses mouth so to speak, and could easily be wrong for example, I have

on sheet ..Wife Elizabeth F= father Thomas M=mother Gwen 3 B=boys Wm,Joh [either John or Joseph] Rich 4 G=girls Kitty, Elizabeth Mary and Ann...for months searching for this combination, I found this...

Wife Elizabeth Father Thomas Mother Kitty [Catherine] boys John and Richard Girls "Gwen" Mary and Anne  ..Elizabeth can be the wife and grandmother...I hate assuming, however could I assume that my neighbours Thomas the convict offered this information with a little spin on it, knowing it would not be checked??

Thankyou Rick in Tasmania
