I am currently researching sll these names in Tasmania and am having problems putting some of the links together please if your linked to any of these surnames can you contact me. In the message I need your date of birth, parents full names and dates of birth and grand parents names and dates of birth /marriage if possible it is then easier to work out the link.
If you have knowledge back to your great grand parents which is where most people would link up under the age of 40 it would be easier. Also looking for Laredo links in New Zealand/South Africa and Mexico. thankyou annette.

William Walsh m Mary Ann Ball, Epaminondas Laredo m Catherine Galvin, John Shepherd m Sarah Gregory, John Barrett and Mary Barrett, along with John age 6, Arthur born on voyage came out from England on the "Southern Eagle" in 1857. Most of these people proceeded to have families in Launceston, Deloraine, Black Forest, Pt Sorell, Turners Marsh,etc

Hello Annette

I'm researching the Williscroft's. Alfred Henry WILLISCROFT married May LAREDO 1901. Alfred was born 23 Apr 1882 the son of Alexander George WILLISCROFT and Harriet WEBBER. Alexander was born in St. Germain, Cornwall, England in 1852. Alexander was the son of William WILLISCROFT & Mary WIDDESCOMBE. William was born c.1831 Newfoundland. William was the sion of Alexander WILLISCROFT and Jane HOSKINS. Alexander was born 1794 Ireland.

Alfred's father Alexander arrived in Tasmania c. 1879. He and Harriet had seven known children, three born in Cornwall and four born in Holbart.

A John Williscroft was also in Tasmania in 1828 a convict who had a death sentence commuted to life for highway robbery but no close relationship to other Williscrofts mentioned.
