212Re: Two JOHNSTON lines in Tasmania
- May 28, 2006Hi Lorna,
Archibald Dalgleish JOHNSTONE and his wife Agnes WEBSTER had a son
John JOHNSTONE B. 23 June 1848 in Hobart. Nothing further is known about him.
Thomas (Tiger) JOHNSTONE and his wife Isabella had a son John b. 27
Dec 1843 in Hobart, but he married Jane Rebecca Reynolds. They had 3
daughters and 1 son, names unknown so far.
Neither could be the father of your Sarah Eleanor born 1841
(!). They also had a brother John b. about 1803 in Scotland,
probably Fife. Nothing more is known about him so he probably died
young - he does not appear to have emigrated with his brothers or cousins.
Those are the only John JOHNSTONEs in my husband's line.
The Tasmanian Archives site has very incomplete information - but
isn't it up to us to help them when we can? I think citations need
to be supplied with any new information.
