Good Morning Listers,

For a favour to my sister, I am researching her daughter in law's PAGE family. I have tranced the family back from Manly NSW to Tasmania, through Eric Melville Page born 14 10 1910 in Gordon, Tasmania, through is father Ernest Henry Page born 23 Jan 1884, who married Lillian Ada Hutton in 1906 in Tasmania. Through Ernest's father, George Henry Page born circa 1860 ??? George married Sarah Lydia Hampton on 26th Jan 1882 in Launceston.

I am unable to ascertain if George Henry Page was born in Tasmania or if he immigrated or even arrived below deck in chains.

I have found the birth of his wife Sarah Lydia Hampton, she is the daughter of Thomas Hampton, no mother's name given. She was born on 22 Oct 1860 at Brighton. This is as far as I have been able to go. I thought that maybe both George and Sarah could be children of convicts.

I have found the death of George Henry Page on 27 Jul 1903, but not the death of his wife Sarah Lydia Page (nee Hampton). Also I have not been able to find the death of George's son Ernest Henry Page and his wife Lillian Ada Page (nee Hutton). Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

I hope SKS, can point me in the right direction, to unravel this mystery.

Happy Christmas to you all,

Belrose - Sydney
