Where are the Tasmanian Clarkes?

Article by Convicts10

I found out recently that my great great grandfather was a convict. He was transported in 1844, aged 22. His youngest daughter was born in 1875 and lived to 1972 - within my lifetime. I wish I'd known about this family connection, I would have tried to contact her. She was Amy Susannah Clark, later married I believe to a Mr Vernon Harcourt Johnson. I would be interested in finding any descendants who can tell me more about her life, and show me photos if they exist of some of those ancestors.

Thanks for answering. William John Isent Clark lived in the southern part of the state. He married Mary Ann Dikes in Hamilton, and after her death married Susanna Mary Triffit in Hobart, around 1864. He died in Dromedary in 1900. His children include James Alexander Clark, Benjamin Henry Clark, Susanna Maria Clark, Mary Ann Clark, William Thomas Clark, Emma Clark, then in his second marriageSarah Henrietta Amelia Clark, Any Susanna Clark, Ethel Edith Clark, Frederick George Edward Clark(e), my great grandfather who apparently changed the spelling of the surname. Also John Oliver Clark, Charles Albert Clark and Amy Susannah who I mentioned above. I'm still trying to find out more about his life, and would love to know details, including any photographs that might exist.
