The Colonial Tasmanian Family Links database is designed to provide an initial online genealogical research resource. It links individuals with other members of their families living in Tasmania in the 19th Century.

The Archives Office has developed some on-line indexes to records which contain information about individuals. These indexes generally provide the name of the person in the specified record, some additional identifying information, and references to the record itself. These are most likely to be of interest to researchers undertaking family history but also in cases such as the wills index which covers modern records as well, for lawyers and others interested in a particular piece of information.

David Rodwell & Rosina Hammond
married 1st December 1846 at

St George's Anglican Church
Battery Point, Hobart,
Tasmania, Australia

A large and beautiful sandstone church, St George's Battery Point is one of the earliest Anglican churches in Tasmania. The story of St Georges begins in 1834 when the city of Hobart was just 30 years old. That year a petition was presented to the Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemens Land that a Church should be built for the residents of Queenborough. The site chosen was the highest point of Battery Point, then known as Kermodes Hill. The Trustees paid Mr Kermode, who owned most of the land in the area, 250 for the site. The building of St Georges began in 1836 and services commenced 26 May 1838. The church was consecrated on 26 May 1838 by the Rt. Rev. W. G. Broughton, the first and only Bishop of Australia, assisted by the Ven. Archdeacon W. Hutchins, Archdeacon of Van Diemens Land, and the Rev. W. Bedford of St. David's

St George's was designed in the Neo-Classical style then current in London. The Government architect, John Lee Archer, designed the body of the building; the tower and porch were designed by convict architect, James Blackburn. The church has an unusual layout, with two side aisles instead of a single central aisle. It still has its original cedar box pews.

Having completed the initial work, it was decided in 1841 to proceed with the tower. The Government was asked for assistance, and agreed to grant convict labour, stone and timber, on the basis that the subscribers were to supply cartage, lime, lead and other materials. Work began on building the tower, but it was soon found that the tower basement, which had been put in at the time of the original building, was badly built and insufficient to bear the weight of the tower. It was found necessary to remove this basement, as well as the vestibule and the two vestries on either side of it. For various reasons, one of which was the inability to supply suitably skilled convict labour, the work was frequently interrupted and left for long periods. By 1847 the tower was finally completed, but the porch and the rooms at the basement of the tower were left unfinished. For five years the Church was more or less exposed to the weather and great inconveniences were occasioned to the congregation Erected to serve as a mark for shipping, the tower of St Georges has been a landmark for sailors ever since 1847. Back in the nineteenth century when St Georges was built, Battery Point was home to master mariners, shipwrights, seamen, fishermen, shipping agents and many others who worked in the shipbuilders' yards and on the wharves. These connections earned St George's the name of "The Mariners' Church".

In October 1862 Mr Hore had a tender of 462 accepted for finishing two wings of the Church. These are quite substantial side buildings in a style similar to that of the Church. Though the Tower was built very soon after the main auditorium, St Georges porch was not added until 1888. The stone for its fine fluted Grecian columns was quarried at Bellerive.

In 1873 land adjacent to the church was bought for a parsonage at a cost of 163, the money being raised from rent of the School Room, subscriptions and surplus of Parish Funds. It was not until May 1895 that a decision was taken to build the Parsonage, to contain 3 living rooms, a study, 4 bedrooms, a kitchen, servant's room and usual offices. A tender of 735 was accepted, and the building was finished in September 1896.

One of the reasons for the long delay was that the Rector, Canon Banks Smith, lived in his own house opposite the church (now 27 Cromwell Street). As he did not wish to move into the newly completed Rectory, the house was let.

In January 1906 it was decided to build a new Sunday School on land recently bought adjoining the old Sunday School. This very substantial building was erected in 1914. In November 1918 the church records note that the new Sunday School was not sufficient to contain all the scholars and the old Sunday School was having to be used.

But despite its history and architecture St George's is no museum - although it has one! It is home to a living, worshipping congregation who are always ready to welcome newcomers, whether as visitors or as new members.
