My great uncle Henry Maurice Joscelyne was only very distantly related to the Joscelyne family who came to Tasmania in the mid-nineteenth century. In fact you have to go back to Ralph Joslin of Rayne (born 1618) to find a common ancestor. In fact Henry probably came to Australia to link up with his Mother's family, the Gowlland family, of whom John Ewing Gowlland his uncle was the most distinguished, although he had drowned while surveying Sydney Harbour some years before-see biography also in Bright Sparks. John was joined in Sydney by his brother Fred Gowlland and by his sister Celia, who married Alexander Oliver. All three Gowllands had children.So Henry had 17 Australian cousins. Unfortunately both Henry's surviving children were killed in the 1st World War, while serving with British Regiments although they had been born in the Colony of New South Wales. Henry Maurice Joscelyne began his career in Australia as a schoolmaster at Sydney Grammar school,and moved from Perth to join the Commonwealth Meteorological Office from its inception to 1922. It is uncertain whether he died in England or Australia.
