I have a transcript of a letter sent from Hobart Town 2 August 1825 from a James Ironside. It is to his brother John in Edinburgh Scotland following James's arrival in Van Diemens Land on the Deveron on "the evening of 22 October"(1824). The Deveron then continued to Sydney. But I do not know if he settled. It says "John Wilson from Banff died here last week". Do these names mean anything to anyone?

In the course of researching my Tasmania convict ancestor John Hollis I have obtained a colour photocopy of the original convict list of the ship Enchantress - sailed Portsmouth 13 April to Hobart arriving 32 July 1833 with 109 male convicts aboard. I will supply a transcription of the list to anyone who contacts me by email.

I am part of a team who are tracing the family and descendants of John Richards Lapenotiere (1770 - 1843), a British naval officer. J R Lapenotiere was at the battle of Trafalgar (1805) where he commanded the Pickle, a schooner. He was selected to deliver the battle dispatches to the Admiralty in London shortly afterwards. His epic journey by sea and land is to be re-enacted in 2005.
My team are keen to obtain information about his daughter Elizabeth, who is thought to have migrated to Tasmania in the early years of the 19th century. Her married name was Graves.
