Seeking information about GP Ball from Montford. Apparently my GG Grandfather William DOBSON went to work at Montford when he arrived in Launceston in 1843.
Any help appreciated.
Details of my GG Granfather's family:
William DOBSON with his wife Anne RICHARDSON arrived in Tasmania aboard the ship Elizabeth & Jane from London in Launceston on 9 February 1843. Their application for Bounty was made on 20 February 1843 and the applicant was A. Y. Reed of Launceston. The Hobart Mercury listsWilliam as a 1st Class Farm Servant who went to work for GP Ball of Mountford.
William died on 24 Feb 1885 at Glenore near Hagley in Tasmania and is buried in the graveyard at the Methodist Church in Hagley, Tasmania. His parents were George DOBSON (1792-1860) and Alice FOX (c.1792-)
