My Penman links go back to Essex/Kent.
William John Penman born somewhere between 1790-1805, who married Matilda (unknown), was a Pilot.
His daughter Maria Matilda (1820-1876) married William Henry Downer in 1845 at St. Anne's Limehouse. They migrated to Hobart, Tasmania, around 1852, then moved to Melbourne around 1866.
I have no details of Maria's siblings or forebears. I would appreciate any info you have. Doubt you would be interested in my Downer line.
