Parents names should hopefully be on Death Certificates, bearing in mind that death certs are only as reliable as the informant at the time.

Dear junerobo, Hi. Ok, this is the best I can do based on your limited information provided here.

Spouse's name would be good.

Hi Allycat,
Been there and done all of those. his wife was Maria Sarah Hill, b 1839 Hobart town parents Benjamin & Susan Hill [Nee smith] Maria b Hobart Town.
Both George and Maria are buried Musket Flat, which use to be their property where their "The Travellers Rest Inn" was.
We have just laid a plaque on their lone graves on 24th January this year.
Have tried Scotland as George was b there but only knowing that his name was Robertson makes it very hard as their parents sent them to Australia to teach them a lesson caught Deer Poaching on the Duke of Atholl's Property. family story. Apparently on the property the family says that their was cutlery with the crest on it.
So I really don't know where to go next.
