Yep, that seems to be the right ones there. Thanks for that, CupOfLife!

Just hoping for a shred of detail on their lives before coming to Aus!

I wonder what circumstances would lead a 15 year old girl to come out unaccompanied to VDL.

There are a few arrivals for a William EVERETT that I can see:
Name:Everett, William
Record Type:Arrivals
Arrival date:20 Oct 1831
Ship:Lotus
Record ID:NAME_INDEXES:440387
Resource:CUS30/1/1 P56

A death cert for one Wm Everett (d.1860 aged 55) but he was born in Norfolk.
A marriage for that same Wm Everett, widower, to Jane Holland, in 1844 aged 35. So previously married.

Nothing I can see that has a lead.. :(

From scouring the convict registers I found information for a William EVERETT, originally from Manchester (quite close to Liverpool) who came out on the Red Rover in 1830. He was 22 at this time, giving a birth date of 1808. This means he would have been 15 at time of Maria EVERETT's birth (maybe his age was played down).

Perhaps after (if) he got his ticket of leave, he sent for his wife and young daughter to come to Tassie?

All of this is speculation but it's the only thing I've managed to come up with!

Hey JM,

Just ordered Maria's death cert, here is all the info I can gather from it.
Death Date: 22nd June 1879, corner of Rose and Napier Streets, Fitzroy
Name: Maria King
Age: 54
Father's name: William Everett, labourer
Mother's name: Maria (m surname unknown)
Informant: William King, son, Fitzroy
Where Born: Liverpool, England
How long in Australian colonies: Tasmania (5 years), Victoria (34 years)
Married: Hobart Town, Tasmania, James King (16 years)
Children: Louisa (34), William (32), Henry (30), Thomas (27), Annie Maria (24), George (18), Morton (14), Albert (10).

So she was born in Liverpool in 1823, came over to Tassie when she was a young girl.
Could she have come out under wives and children of convicts to Tassie?

I guess I cannot ever be 100% sure.

This is Wm King's death index, place of birth missing. He would have been born in 1843.
Name:   Wm King
Birth Year:   abt 1845
Age:   52
Death Place:   Frankston, Victoria
Father's name:   King Jas
Mother's name:   Maria Everett
Registration Year:   1897
Registration Place:   Victoria
Registration Number:   1501

And Henry King's death index. Place of birth missing. Was born Tassie 1845 before they left.
Name:   Hy King
Birth Year:   abt 1847
Age:   58
Death Place:   Collingwood, Victoria
Father's name:   Jas King
Mother's name:   Maria Everett
Registration Year:   1905
Registration Place:   Victoria
Registration Number:   4974

I guess it's mainly the fact that the children's ages line up with the arrival sheet.
Eg. William b. 1843 is 4 on arrival in 1846 therefore (b.1842/1843)
Henry b. 23 Apr 1845 in 9mos on arrival in Feb 1846 therefore (b. 1845)

Hmm, that's really interesting.

I think I've gotten myself a bit confused.
She married James KING and had children to him, but on this arrival sheet at Port Phillip she is the wife of William KING https://www.ancestry.com.au/imageviewer/collections/8821/images/41986_329567-00078?treeid=162685494&personid=262122878038&hintid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=hod900&_phstart=default&usePUBJs=true&pId=376&backurl=https%3A%2F%2Fsearch.ancestry.com.au%2Fcgi-bin%2Fsse.dll%3Findiv%3D1%26dbid%3D8821%26h%3D376%26tid%3D162685494%26pid%3D262122878038%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3Dhod900%26_phstart%3Ddefault%26usePUBJs%3Dtrue

Not sure if you can see that link above.  ???

What is interesting is that although the husband's name is different, the children's names are the same, and husband's profession is same as on marriage cert. It says on this resource that Maria was born in VDL (Van Diemen's Land), which is why I assumed she was born in Tassie and looked for records of her birth there.

Maybe I've been barking up the wrong tree the whole time, and she came to Aus as a convict, or with her parents who were convicts.

Thanks JM!

Oh wow! I had no idea that resource existed, how wonderful!
Unfortunately no parents names though.

I don't have an actual copy of the death cert but from Ancestry's Death Index resource in which it lists her parents as William EVERETT and Maria.
According to this database  portal.archives.tas.gov.au/menu.aspx?detail=1&type=P&id=119806 Maria was born in 1823 and according to FindAGrave, she died on the 23rd of June 1879 and was buried in Melbourne General Cemetery.

Wondering if she was born in Tassie, that there would be a baptism/birth register for the 1820s with parents names on it.

I'll have to try the Tassie Resources Board!
