Does anyone know of any research on Robert Alomes, who was sometimes known
as Robert Carter? He was a marine with Capt David Collins who established
Hobart Town in 1804. Robert Alomes (or Allomes) was reportedly the first
man ashore with the Union Jack at Sullivans Cove and later married a
daughter of Jacob Bellette (convict First Fleeter). The Alomes family later had land in the Sorell (east of Hobart) area. Though much has been documented on the descendants of Jacob Bellette and Robert Alomes, not much is known about Alomes himself.
Any information on Robert Alomes would be appreciated. His daughter Amelia
Watson (nee Alomes) was my grandfather's grandmother.

The Lt. Governor understanding that the number of Swans at the upper part of the Derwent River is considerably diminished through their having been of late much harrassed and disturbed and that it is more than probable that the resource which they might have otherwise proved will totally fail unless some steps are taken to prevent it particularly at this Season when the Females are known to be full of eggs, directs that until he shall find it necessary to issue further orders upon this subject no person in or belonging to this Settlement do send any Boat or employ any means any further to molest these Birds which if a proper attention is paid to this order may return to their usual haunts.
An inspection of arms and necessaries tomorrow as usual.

I noticed Robert Alomis and somehow knew he was connected to my work.
I wrote a book in 2004, titled A Royal Marine in Van Dieman's Land. The Story of James Clissold. When James married Mary Carn in 1807 the two witnesses were Robert Alomis and George Kearney.
Just thought I would mention it. I see in your list that the name Clissold does not show up, so there is no connection between us.

From on Saturday, 8 October, 2011|
Thank you so much for sharing such an amazing family tree account. I have been in search of my husband’s great grandmother Phyllis Maud HORSFALL MCKENZIE (HARREX). There was so much speculation about her parents and I am yet to clarify facts. We are aware that Phyllis was adopted out as a baby and up until recently it was always said that her mother (known as Mrs HARREX) apparently had an affair with unknown WELLS man. As she was supposingly married and already had about 8 children, the father took the child and adopted it to his sister that was unable to have children.
After some research, it turns out Mrs HARREX, now known as Florence Jane Catherine HARREX (ALOMES) was quite possibly the mother...how I can to this conclusion.
Florence Jane Catherine HARREX (ALOMES) did marry Alfred William HARREX and had 7 children. He died in 1895. Phyllis was then born in Aug 1897. Although I do not have a copy of the birth certificate as yet, I have located a TAS site that lists birth records and there it states the mother of Phyllis Maud was Jane Catherine ALOMES and lists father as an unknown HARREX.
Other sources claim that Florence Jane Catherine HARREX (ALOMES) may have been involved with Charles James SAUNDERS, who happens to be the cousin of her late husband Alfred William HARREX. I have not found death records for Florence Jane Catherine HARREX (ALOMES) as yet and suspect that she may have even married Charles later on.
My next big mission is to search census information to support my claims. You may notice I am quite sketchy with my information, but I have only been exploring my family tree since July this year. My time is limited around 3 young children, but learning so much more every day and just can’t seem to tear away from it.
Thank you again so much for such a wonderful site and you may agree that I have just added more family to your tree.
Kind regards, Paula van Andel (nee Surjan)
