From the education department application Michael Ambrose McC 18 Oct 1873, he is 30yo at last birthday, native place Ireland, 23 years in the colonies, just returned from 7 years in Victoria, farming and surveying. Among referees are the parish priest at Westbury James Hogan who has known Michael for twenty years. This man is the first priest at Westbury, arriving in 1850, and staying in the same parish until he died. That would seem to mean that Michael's family arrived in Deloraine area in 1853.

ED2/1/275 3404  #404 film roll Z305  - A while since I saw the file, and his birth place was not the purpose of my enquiry, but I have a feeling  that Michael Ambrose was born in Ireland. Anyway, I will locate it and let you know what birthplace is indicated.

Marriage of Michael Ambrose to Jane Joyce 5 Nov 1875 has witnesses Daniel Griffin and E H J McCormack (which would seem to be close relative of adult age) . Michael spent a few years in Victoria as a teacher on the goldfields and applied for a teaching position on return to Tasmania.

Possibility -

Born to James and Marion E Hamilton, Sydney
Jane E 1873
Marion C 1878

Jane E Hamilton m. John T Wilcox 1913 Condobolin

Death of Marion E Hamilton 1922 New Lambton

Arthur C Boxsell would seem to be from family of dairy farmers on the south coast - Berry, Meroo.

Errol was a Gallopoli ANZAC in 1915 at age 16 1/2 yrs, father Arthur also enlisted

I think the 2008 means that the death record was created in that year, for a death in 1927 - so the 2008 would be excluded from the database search which would just look for years when applying  the time qualifier for access to records. Sounds even more intriguing - what happened in 2008 for the death to be recorded, and by whom?

Emily Callow was buried at the Charles St cemetery in Launceston - from funeral notice in Examiner 13 March 1910. I would think Robert was also buried there. I am sure this cemetery no longer exists.

Final goodbye on this topic,
                   Just to explain - enquiry at another genealogy forum for this same family - and I got the forums crossed.

Cheers and good hunting   Wivenhoe

For some reason I have lost the first page of letters for this enquiry, so trying to remember names - I think you need to get a death cert. for Peter Clark, d. 1930, which would presumably have information provided by Charlotte. It will identify children born to Peter. I can see one child, Claude H Clark b. 1892, d. 1921 at Mosman to Peter and Anna, after which it would seem the association with Charlotte began. I think you are uncertain about children born to Peter and Charlotte?. With the names and ages of children, you can work back to locate birth records. Steere could be Charlotte's married name or maiden name. Women with complicated domestic arrangements had a problem about registering births. Such an ancestor of mine used all options for children's surnames - biological father, mother's maiden name and mother's married name.
