Tasmania queries...
« on: Wednesday 10 July 13 04:42 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I am looking to find details for the following family members please.
Birth and or Death date confirmation...TROVE articles...Cemetery locations. I've searched various avenues over the months but to no avail.
Any help would be so very much appreciated. Best wishes, Denise.

George Joseph BERRY is the son of Joseph Berry and Sarah Ann Frances WRIGHT. His Birth 25.11.1858 Port Sorell Tasmania. Death 28.03.1923? Burial place unknown? He married Mary Ann Granger 23.04.1881 Ulverstone Tasmania. Her Birth, Death and Burial place unknown?

Albert Henry BERRY is the son of Joseph Berry and Sarah Ann Frances WRIGHT.  His Birth 1864 Tasmania. His Death and Burial place unknown? He married Mary Ann Dick 20.07.1892 Mersey Tasmania. Her Birth, Death and Burial place unknown?

James NEIGHBOUR is the son of William NEIGHBOUR and Ann ADAMS. Birth 07.02.1853 Campbelltown Tasmania. Death 1917 Campbelltown Tasmania? Burial place unknown? He married Unknown?

Sarah Arnott nee ACKLIN Birth unknown? Death 1878 Port Sorell Tasmania? Burial Place unknown? She married Robert ARNOTT 1877 Tasmania. His Birth unknown? Death 1897 Sheffield Tasmania? Burial Place unknown?

Henry ACKLING / HACKLING / ACKLIN was a Convict and transported to Tasmania at the age of 18 on 29.01.1834 via Voyage Ship "MOFFATT". His 1st marriage was to M WATTS in 1846 Tasmania. His 2nd Marriage was to Margaret PEGLER nee MAHONEY in 1855 Tasmania of whom went on to marry a William MORRIS in 1859 Tasmania. We have no idea the date of Death or where he Died??? He did however, make voyages to Melbourne from Launceston on 02.01.1852 via "HALCYON" & 23.07.1852 via "SHAMROCK" meaning he may very well have left Tasmania??

Hi Denise,

Just had a quick look, but will delve further. Mary Ann Granger looks to have been born 11 November 1858 in Franklin, Tassie and died in 1914 aged 56. She is buried in the Ulverstone General Cemetery and was buried 5 August 1914

Hi Denise,
I have used the Tasmania's Heritage site to find information relating to ancestors who went to Tasmania.  With convicts transported to Tasmania from England you can often find digitized records relating the convict.  Use the menu on the left of the screen and use the Tasmanian Convicts section and also the Convicts applying to Marry.  It takes a bit of scrolling through the records but you can find quite a bit of information.

]Thanks also Kay for your response. I did find Henry Ackling convict details from that particular Site plus various other URL's as follows as yes it is quite time consuming. I am now having difficulties finding his Death and Burial Details, however, I shall keep searching.  :) Have a lovely evening, Denise.

Hi Denise

I wonder if this could be your Henry as a victim in the 1884 NSW Police Gazette?

See attachment: Henry Ackling NSW Police Gazette 06Aug1884 p.232 col.2

Cheers for now, Bonza

Hi again Denise

Following on form my last post, could this be his death I wonder? Though it would mean he got to a decent age. Maybe TROVE has something on this Henry Ackling?

Hi again Denise

Here's some funeral notices for the Randwick Henry Ackling (bottom one), who also seems to go by the name James. Don't know any age or other info yet on this bloke, but will keep searching for clues.
