I have just started researching James Sharpe, of Sandy Bay, Tasmania, my GGG grandfather, apparently born about 1767 and dying in Hobart, Tasmania in 1840. Two Sharpe daughters, Hannahand Mary, married two Tapley brothers, James and John at O'Halloran Hill, South Australia on 28th Sept, 1854. I am wondering how the two families met and whether James Sharpe was a convict. In a number of news articles on Trovehe is listed as a respectable farmerbut I can't find any internet records except for convicts. Any help would be useful.
