Not sure if we are connected I have been following our family heritage and apparently started in Tasmania, Australia with Thomas Livermore who arrived in Tasmania aboard vessel Guildford, in January 1812, he was convicted in Surry U.K.'
Then Elizabeth Duslop/Dewsnap arrived on vessel Maria in 1818 (approximately 15 or 16 years old) after a chequered career she partnered with an aboriginal man and her son William was born in 1826. (not sure where Elizabeth came from at this point)
Thomas and Elizabeth married on 10.09.1827 and little William was given the Livermore name.(not sure yet if an adoption took place)
William then married Mary Ann Norris from Somerset U.K. and they had 4 children 3 male and 1 female (Harriet Livermore)
