James Taylor

James Taylor married Ellen Beckett at St George’s Church in Battery Point on the 18 October 1849.

Ellen Beckett was a convict from Clonmel Tipperary who had arrived in Hobart on the 7 October 1848. She had been found guilty for stealing a goat.

I believe James Taylor to have arrived in Hobart from New Brunswick, Canada on board the ship ‘Peruvian‘ in mid February 1847.  He was named as the Supercargo in a newspaper article published by the Colonial Times, Tasmania.

The article mentions Mr J.Taylor as Supercargo.
