HI Lois, I was interested to find your post concerning the Collyers. My great great grandmother on my father's side, was Elizabeth Collyer. I don't know where or when she was born, but she may well be the Elizabeth you mention born 1839. She was married to James Goodson (a widower) at St. Matthias Church, Launceston, Tasmania on November 28, 1860. The couple had 6 children, who's names were what prompted me to write. They were-: Elizabeth, Lucy, Sarah, Mary, William and Mervun John Goodson. I would be curious to know more about your William as you state he was a shipwright. Depending where he lived, he may have come into contact with my mother's family, the Taylor's. They owned ships in the north of the state and so your William may have helped with the building of one or more of their ships. (When I get the chance I will check mother's records to see what I can find). I hope we can find a connection. Either way, I will keep a look out for info on your family. If I stumble on anything useful, I will pass it on. Good luck with your research, Shari Martin-Reader.
