I also just had a quick look at Tassie Archives and noted the following:
Under Permissions to Marry there is a William REES of the ship Coromandel &
Frances CODE of the ship Midlothian on 3 July 1854
Under there family links data base there is:
a Marriage/relationship listed for: Frances CODE to William REEVES 1854
So just wondered if it may be worth looking for the name REEVES in your
search as well
Below is the link
