Got some info that will shed some more light. I am researching Bellingers. Alfred Bellinger m Sarah Maria Carn. They lived and worked at Lisdillon/Mayfield estates. I have been reading Sarah Mitchell's diary and an entry on 26/4/1882 records a Mrs webb having a daughter the day before. Then she dies on 6/5/1882 with a funeral the following day. The interesting connection comes when on 8/5/1882 there is an entry that says 'Mrs Webbs daughter is with her mother(Mrs Carn)'. This semms to suggest the missing daughter that died was married to a Webb and Annie was the grand daughter b. 25/4/1882 and not a foster daughter. The diary also records John Carn's illness from Apr 1882 and died 7/9/1882 between 6 & 7 a.m. The burial took place on Pykes Island( now Ram Island).On Sunday 10th there is an entry 'Rode to Pyke's Is. & read the burial service over John Carn'. Hope this fills in a few gaps. Came across this by accident while looking for Sarah Carn & Bellinger entries.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the information on the Carn family.
I have also started reading the diary, absolutely fantastic for little bits of information here and there.
The family story was that a sister had a child very young (story is she was not married) and the familly adopted her.

Thank you again

Hi Pam,

Thank you very much for taking an interest. I am thrilled to have this information, and the family story put right.
My Husbands family used to go to Tasmania to help on the Carn farm.
