Hi again Matthewj64,
Thanks for the Death Notice. yes that was the William Burns.  He came to VDL with his Wife and young Daughter on the ship "John Barry" in 1826.   Have his Will which took some time to prove following his death in 1873.  Not certain who got ownership of this property, his Wife Mary having died in 1889.  Was it Lydia Ims, their Daughter who owned another property close by named "Bloomsbury".
Bit of a puzzle

Hi matthewj64,
Your reply suggests you have access to LIST Tasmania?  Would you have the Folio/Volume Number for the sale of 67 acres of 200 acres to Joseph Bridge?
Regards

From LIST Tasmania, Burns sells about 67 acres of the 200 acres to Joseph Bridge in 1858. It may be that Burns used the funds from the land sale to build the house? Is the house still standing, and if so what does it look like?

Hi matthewj64,
Thanks for the information re Volume 4/Folio 5585.  Hope I am not out of order here.
There was another Volume/Folio Number  6/5774 covering 132 acres, the balance of the original Grant of 200 acres.  Would you have the name/s who bought this larger piece of land after William Burns died in 1873?   Navigating through LIST since it went online is bewildering to me.
Hope you can help
Regards

This is an unusual one, my interpretation is that Mary Burns grants without cost 'in consideration of the natural love and affection for her daughter' the land to Richard Wilcox of Hobart Town Gentleman to hold in trust for the use of, firstly Mary Burns until her death, then her daughter, Lydia Ims, wife of Edgar Henry Ims until her death, and finally becoming the property of Richard Wilcox.

If you're having trouble accessing the pdf, search in Historic Deeds > Dealing No: with the volume/folio number in the format 04/5585

Hi matthewj64,
Agree it is a strange one!  Thanks for your help and will follow your suggestion.
My ultimate goal is hoping to establish an ownership link with a Horace Watson and years of his ownership.  My opinion is he owned this 130 acre Lot and an adjacent one Volume 4 Number 5585 originally granted to Anne RUSSELL.
Many thanks again.
Regards
