Hi

I assume that you are referring to Campbelltown in Tassie??

Have you checked the Trove site yet? Old Australian newspapers that have been digitised and can be searched?  I found this there....


Birth Notices
Examiner Launceston Tasmania
Saturday 27th Oct 1923

ASHMAN.. on the 3rd Oct 1923 at the Cambell Town Hospital, the wife of George ASHMAN.. a daughter.

Cheers

There is an Alwyn george Robert Ashman in Campelltown on the 1846 Electoral Rolls. He is alone and a shop assistant. That is the only time he shows.
