Hello Donna/Julie I am researching the ROBERTS family, a dau. Sophia married Thomas FLOOD. Somehow while trying to sort out this FLOOD line I got involved in doing the whole family! There were so many similar names that I found that I had to go the whole hog. Yes I have come across the Germaine/Gorman/Jarmy controversy but I haven't got any idea about which is the correct answer. A book has been published recently on the Marquis of Cornwallis convicts. I have been told that the author says that they are all descendants of the convict on that ship.
A Desperate Set of Villains, the convicts of the Marquis Cornwallis, Ireland to Botany Bay 1796, by Barbara Hall.
I am trying to find what happened to John A FLOOD who married Zenobia A CROOK in 1869. Some Flood researchers believe that he is the son of Thomas and Sophia FLOOD. We thought that their John A Flood had died young. So we need to find a death for the one who got married and hope to find his parents names from that record. Apparently quite a few of the Flood descendants went to Queensland and I wondered if he went there also.
I found this in the Mutch Index, you probably already have it. I couldn't find any other entries for Thomas Tambleton. I wondered if the name could have been Templeton.
Germaine or Tambleton Margaret Parents Thomas Tambleton & Ann Germaine C: 15.1.1792 St Phillip's Church Sydney Buried 9.3.1792 St Phillip's Church Sydney There was a note beside the name Ann Germaine saying "indents Mary Ann 1791".
