.....Joseph ROSS - I am a detective constable attached to the Launceston Police; I know the apellant John A'HONG; I remember his being married some years ago; he has been absent from the colony for a considerable time, his wife lived with a man named HOLDEN during his absence she passed as his wife and had two children; she refused to live with A'HONG the day after they were married; I am not aware that she went back to him afterwards. Her children have no Chinese features about them......

Once again Wivenhoe, thank you very much for your great detective work.  I can now piece together all of the fragments that I have on Jane Hamilton, although I doubt that we will ever know the paternity of all of her children.  I have never come across any mention of John Ahong, but I can see now how John Oakley would fit in to Jane's life and the birth of her known children. In a world where there was no welfare, I do feel sorry for the path that took Jane to her early death, and the disjointed lives that her children lived.  On a positive note, all of her children that I have researched, have led a good, family orientated, productive life and her descendants have proven themselves to be good people.  I will revisit Tassie Archives with a fresh outlook now that I have your great information.  Thank you very much.  Rap.

I am the great great granddaughter of John and Jane. I am a direct Oakley ancestor and still live in the area. I have the full family tree and stories of the family. I am more than happy to share the info.

I am so interested in these posts. My name is Clare Anderson and I am an academic historian. I have spent almost 30 years researching the history of transportation from British colonies to British penal colonies. I am now starting new work on the history of descent and descendants of black, Creole, and Asian convicts. NSW/ VDL are included in this work. Ahong really interests me! Would any of you be willing to talk to me about your family history? I would be so grateful. You can find my email address by clicking on this link (I don't want to paste it directly here), https://le.ac.uk/people/clare-anderson Many thanks for reading, and best wishes to all, Clare.
