Hi, what was you wanting us to help you find about him
Phillip was born in rural Wales and apparently moved to Launceston in Tasmania before marrying Mary Ann Brenner in 1968.They had 16 children and he died in 1912. Margeurite Smith Jones my grandmother was born in 1881, Phillip’s 10th child. My question is how did he get to Tasmania-?
Sorry, I meant married in 1868.
This is THE site to search Libraties Tasmania Surname Search
The marriage certificate is here, 21 April 1868 and you are able to download a copy, also all arrivals, you can have the fun of going through them.
Note: Mary Ann BREMNER not BRENNER
check signatures on original
Bremner, Mary Ann
Date of marriage: 21 Apr 1868
Registration year: 1868
according to Death Notice, estimated birth date 1840 married at 28 so arrival search should be from say 1855 to 1868 narrows it down a little bit. - Still a lot of Jones' and may not have entered into Tasmania.

Daily Telegraph (Launceston, Tas. Wed 10 Dec 1913
JONES.— In loving memory of our dear
brother, Phillip Jones, who departed
this life on the 10th December, 1912 at
Had we but seen him at the last,
And watched his dying bed,
Or heard the last sigh of his heart,
Or held his drooping head.
Our heart, we think, would not have felt
Such bitterness and grief
But God had ordered otherwise,
And now he rests in peace.
The winds of heaven blow softly
Over that sweet and hallowed spot;
But amid the changing scenes of life
By us you are not forgot.
—Inserted by his sorrowing brother and
sister, R. and H. Costello, Lower Barrington.
which his sister Harriett and Brother-in-law-so perhaps he did not travel alone would make it easier if arrival was Phillip and Harriett
Record Type: Marriages
Date of marriage: 22 Mar 1871
Registration year: 1871
Thanks for the extra information, the in memoriam information is already verified but I did not pick up the brother (in law) sister bit. That challenges the earlier generation in Wales. So it is back to the drawing board. I think I will concentrate on the Costello/Harriet Jones pairing for a start and the arrivals data. Thanks also for picking up the spelling of Brenner.Harriet Jones.

Just to let you know These Costello's are known as 'the Barrington Costellos'
it will help when searching.
Richard died at Lower Barrington on 25 October 1920 aged 79. Harriett died on the 6 December 1927
