Thank you Wivenhoe and ShaunJ for your time, mystery solved.

Australia / Joseph CORREA date of arrival in Tasmania
« on: Wednesday 13 October 21 04:30 BST (UK)  »
Seeking the date this man arrived in Tasmania. Newspapers reported him as a native of Cape de Verde Islands. He was definitely in Tasmania in August 1879 as he was reported at the diggings at Mount Arthur. He married in Launceston in 1881, with his registered age as 24, thus a birth date of around 1857. His occupation was a cook at his marriage but he was later a laborer and chimney sweep. I have wives and children etc, just need when he arrived. Thanks in anticipation.

Annie Howard was buried in the Cypress Street Cemetery.
She is buried in Section A in Crawford's ground.

Australia / Re: James SWAINSON policeman Tas and NSW?

Thanks Shume,
He is proving very elusive. Cannot find death or any other details. All I know is the Tas guy's wife was called Margaret. No trace of any children born in Tas.
Looks like the NSW man may have gone to QLD.
I am a bit inclined to think they may be the same man, especially since his Tas service record mentioned that he was in the police in Sydney before coming to Tas.

Thank you Peter for your help, greatly appreciated.
The Launceston James had a bit of trouble in the Launceston Force and was dismissed mainly due to his wife's indiscretions in 1860. (perhaps led to divorce or separation  ???)

Thanks Debra,
His appointment date to NSW police is about 6 weeks after the James in Tas left from Hobart.
Will keep digging.

Seeking to establish if James SWAINSON, who was a constable in Launceston, Tasmania and was promoted to Acting Sergeant around February 1859 is the same James Swainson who was a detective constable in NSW (Yass) in October 1864.
There is a record of a James Swainson leaving Hobart, Tasmania for Sydney in August 1861.
The last mention I can find of him in NSW was at the Central Police Court in May 1866.
Any information greatly appreciated.
