George and Mary Ann Dawson Althorpe


From on Sunday, 23 January, 2011
Hi Elizabeth, I have just had a look at your site. George Althorpe & Mary Ann Dawson, are my husband's 3xg great parents, through their daughter Emma who wed John Williams. Emma & John with their children went to live in Charters Towers, John Williams died 15 May 1886 in Charters Towers. Emma remarried in 1888 to Alfred Barrowclough and had 3 more children. Margaret, daughter of Emma & John wed Charles Thomas Hartley in Charters Towers.
Do you know that Mary Ann Althorpe, sister of George Althorpe, wed a William Briant, and also lived in Victoria.
George & Mary Ann are the children of George Althorpe who was transported to Tasmania in 1828. Mary Ann's husband was also a convict transported to Tasmania in 1831.
I do have a tree in Ancestry.com which is the Daniel Bell Family Tree, where I am trying to update the Briant, Brian, Obrian, O'Brian, Bryant, and any other spelling of the name, into my tree, you are welcome to use any information that I have in the tree.
Regards Hazel
