Hi I'm Don Beecroft, Father of Chris Beecroft, listed in this site.Unfortunately Chris is now deceased,(2 years), and consequently, could not reply to any queries.I had been, in conjunction with Chris, doing our family history here in Tasmania, and have all of it back to 1808, but cannot prove from where our Richard came. Nor can we actually say if he was a Brown or a Beecroft. There is so much confusion in early Tasmanian records. All we can say is that he (Richard) married Katherine Belbin (nee Merridith, ex Norfolk Island) in 1816. Had three children whilst alive, and one posthumously 1822 after his death in 1820. If anyone can add anything to this I would be grateful. Katherine married a (?) Collings in 1822, and disappeared from records, Although the Belbin family ought know something?
