Bartholomew Jeffery Esq 23 Nov 1779 - 17 Dec 1843.

He was born into a merchant family who traded with Russia. He worked in partnership with his father George Jeffery 1743-1821 and his elder brother John Jeffery 1777-1860. the family leased a home at 26 Throgmorton St, London from the Drapers Company.

Bartholomew married Wilhelmina Molesworth 5 May 1804. Wilhelmina's brother became the 7th Viscount Molesworth Richard Pigott Molesworth 23 Jul 1786-20 June 1875.

Bartholomew and Wilhelmina had 9 children and Molesworth Jeffery 1811-1900 was my 2nd great grandfather.

He arrived in Hobart aboard the "Vibilia" 16 Jan 1835 where he served in the army. He married Eliza Rayner the grand daughter of convicts 23 Nov 1836.

They settled in Lachlan near New Norfolk Tasmania where Molesworth brought land. They built a property called Bournbank above the steep sides of the Lachlan river that flows into the Derwent. They had 12 children. several moved to Victoria to establish farms in the Highlands from Kobyboyn near Avenel to Alexandra near Yea.

There are many descendants and this is a small snapshot of my family.
