Can you confirm please - you are researching the origins of this man -

QLD BDM death
1928/B/4616   Thomas WILSON
Died: 27/05/1928
Mother: Sarah Wilson
Father/parent: Charles Wilson

And you have seen this certificate?


Matthew -
The information about baptisms is very useful. Are you able to enhance this with details of godparents.

Catholic baptisms usually have godparents named, and they might be family members.

Tasmania Convict Records
Sarah WATSON # 506 convicted Dublin 9 Aug 1842, arrived Hobart "Waverley" (2)

CON 15 
Native Place:  Dublin
Relations - Apprenticeship-where last residing: 
                     3 b(rothers) Edward, William, Dennis       transported
                     Edwd  about 10 years ago
                     William           5 years ago
                     Dennis            3 years ago
                     s(isters)        Rose, Mary Ann and Catherine    at England.

Where Sarah WATSON is 19 years old you might think that her memory of Dennis is clearer then her memory of eg. Edward, which would make looking for Dennis WATSON, transported 1841 +/- 1 years a better option that  looking for Edward or William.

Assuming that they were transported to an Australian colony, you might expect to see Edward, William and Dennis on the 1842 Convict Muster. Were they born in Ireland....were they convicted in Ireland?

Dennis is a less common name and you might hope to locate him.  Are they WATSON or BOND?

What do you see on this death record for Sarah WILSON, died 1860, NSW?
Can you please list all the information.

When Sarah dies, 1860, there are several small children. If father Charles WILSON did not remarry  - who raised these children?

Thomas WILSON, died, 1928, has very informative death record. He must have passed information about his origins to his family. Mother Sarah, during her life time, must have given this information to her children.

Where are Edward, William and Dennis WATSON   (BOND?)  Are they in NSW?
Thomas WILSON dies, 1928, Brisbane, and the informant is able to name his father and mother.  That is impressive for a boy whose mother died when he was ~ 14 years old.

Good luck with that   ;D

Agree with Debra  :)

But ... NSW Archives does have a Convicts Index ... and WATSON as a surname is not nearly as popular as Wilson.   Fingers crossed Sarah WATSON's brothers went to Tasmania ... much better records available online without needing a subscription...

The headings for that index include Name, surname, Ship  Year (of arrival, although it does NOT actually say that),  Record type, Date (date refers to the Record type) and remarks.

Its hard to make out, but distinctly an 'a' for the middle letter, I think it is this marrying couple, Maurice Fay and Mary Whelan

Thanks for so many more leads and the extra baptisms and godparents, and the brothers of Sarah.
The person I am researching who led me into this is the Charles b 1850. I love that one of his godparents is John Lennon!
Thanks for the drilling down into the NSW records info. That's another thing I didn't know.
will have to followi some of these new leads
Thanks again.
