Don't spend too much time looking at the PRO Vic shipping as that does not
include people arriving in Vic from Van Diemens Land.
The Bellarine Historical Society has a heap of information on the HANCOCKs
from our own records as well as different bits submitted by descendants.
According to what I have here, William HANCOCK and Rebecca STANNARD were
both on the Royal George which arrived in Hobart 5th February 1837. They
were married in Hobart 11th September 1837.
I have Mary Jane's birth as 16th April 1838 - think that looks like a
shotgun job! <vbg> but I'm wondering if perhaps the date you have for
William Henry might be a baptism date? I've got 17th February 1841. Or
else we have the wrong date!
William, Rebecca and Mary Jane came to Vic from VDL on the Charlotte in
1839 - I haven't followed up the date but the Charlotte did many trips in
1839 between Launceston and Melbourne.
Hope that helps ....... Susie Z
