Elizabeth I see from your website that you have an interest in William Henry Lombe who married Julia Sherlock 1848 in Launceston. I am a descendant of William's sister, Frances Louisa Lombe. I am struggling to make any headway on researching their father, William Henry Lombe, but do have some info on their mother.

From: S.L. & Y. L. EBB, Date: 03 June, 2002 03:55 Subject: Lombe Family
We are researching my husband's mother's family, by name Lombe.
We know that William Henry Lombe was christened in St Peter's Church, Liverpool on 5th March, 1826. His parents were William Henry Lombe, born ca. 1788 Norwich, England, and Elizabeth Barron Milner, who were apparently married on 14th November, 1818 in St Nicholas' Church, Liverpool, England.
We understand that at some time either both William and Elizabeth, or possibly Elizabeth alone, were operating a Circulating Library there. We wondered if it was possible to obtain any further information on William Henry Lombe and Elizabeth Barron Milner.

I have also found Family Tree which features the two children, Frances Louisa and William Henry, with her baptism cert, and lovely stories of earlier times. Story seems to be first husband died, second husband decided to go to Australia, wife died before they reached Perth.
On 05 July 1828 the widow Lombe married, by licence, William Stewart at St. Cuthbert, North Meols.
Lovely detailed notes
Elizabeth Barrow Milner-Lombe, now Mrs Stewart, died on the voyage from Liverpool leaving Fanny aged 8, her brother William Henry Lombe aged about 10 years(?) old, and Mr Stewart, her step-father. They arrived in the Swan River Colony, on 8 May 1830 as steerage passengers on the brig 'James', the same day as the 'Bombay' arrived in port and quickly arranged a transfer. They arrived in Hobart, Van Diemen's Land, on 26 July 1830 on the ship 'Bombay' from the Swan River Colony, now Fremantle/Perth in Western Australia, which had only been established about 12 months earlier.

William Henry Lombe as Passenger sailed on the Roseanna on 20 July 1846 from George Town to Sydney.
