Dear Ladyhawk,

Thanks for putting me straight - Giles & Catherine are the parents of Thomas. So they moved to Bridgwater.

I can't cope with these alternate spellings. As for Perham. I've spent so much of my life spelling it.

It's too late at my age to change to Peram or Perram.

And as for the Tassie authorities changing the birth etc dates to when they got there!

Dear Ladyhawk,

Thanks very much for giving me the FreeBMD address.
Bridgwater is the BMD District which includes Ashcott so Giles & Catherine would have stayed put in Ashcott after Thomas & Co flitted to Tasmania. Thomas's elder sister Eliza stayed as far as I can gather. I have no information on any other offspring that they may have had.

I now think I have all the info I need to build a pictorial family tree which will finish up as a book.
My mother's side, Bells from Scotland, who went to NZ from Liverpool by way of Adelaide, Hobart & Sydney, finally landing at Wellington (Port Nicholson) in 1840. has been well researched (fortunately).

Hello Ladyhawk,

And I thought I had closure on Ashcott!

The link you've kindly given is most intriguing.

Someone named D K Hampton complied a family tree concentrating on my great-uncle William back in Nov 1980.

He/she shows that Giles' parents were John Periam ca1759-1830 and Mary Meaker - married 1796. Giles' wife Catherine Bennett's parents were William Bennett & Mary Pollett - married in 1776.

Have since made contact with Denis Hampton who lives in NZ.
He has done a lot of research on the Perhams.
They sailed from London on Arab - listed as Bounty immigrants - and arrived at Launceston on March 31st, 1842.
So that solves that problem.

Many thanks for your help Ladyhawk.
I still have a problem with my granddad Luke Perram, later Perham.
The 1841 census apparently has him down as David. not Luke. Right age.
Am thinking of going to Kew and see if I can find the enumerator's written entry,
not some Mormon transcript.
