Mortlake (Vic.) (Eastern Maar Country)
Notes:
It is now known that at least twelve people – eleven men and one woman – who settled at Mortlake arrived in Australia as transported convicts. All but one of these – Abel Jones – is buried in the Mortlake Cemetery. The earliest to arrive in Tasmania was William Belford in 1829; the last was Andrew Connelly in 1849. Thanks to research carried out by Tania Shalders, we are aware of one ‘convict burial’ at Ballangeich and information about this person – Robert Archman – has been included in this set of profiles. Also included is the story of Joseph Pine of Hexham.
