Looking for James and Ann Bevan (neeJones)
I believe James Bevan was born in abt 1817 in Herefordshire. I have no knowledge of his parents or siblings and this is what I am searching for. My first discovery of James and Ann is through the 1841 Wales Census. They were living in Rhymney, Wales and James was listed as a Haulier at the Rhymney Iron Works. They had a son William (2) listed as well. A second son John was born in July of 1841. In 1842 they immigrated to Australia and settled in Launceston, Tasmania. They ship that brought them to Australia was the "Royal Saxon". A daughter Mary Ann was born in Launceston in 1844 and in 1845 they moved to South Australia, where a further three sons were born.
Living next door to them in the 1841 census was a Thomas Bevan and his wife Margaret and there is a possibility that Thomas may have been a brother of James. Thomas is listed as being born in Whitney, Herefordshire.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
