I'm loving the book Alison. I need to give you a piece of information. My father Joseph Lord (pic on page 139) brother of Louisa Smith married my mother Dulcie Tilyard. Her great grand parents were Mary and George Kearley who I hadn't known previously was servant to Edward Lord. Who would have thought all those years later that their great grandchildren would marry! I was so delighted to see the beautiful photo of my father as he passed away when I was only 14. Thank you so much for this book that I can share with my grandchildren for years to come.

Hey! If you come from Hobart, you must read this book! Find out about its murky and nefarious beginnings in this marvellous read.

Interesting comments, especially were you get your information from....Louisa smith? My grandfather would be rolling in his grave. Great Grand children getting married? Not something I'd tell my son.. Edwards great great grandson......some things are better kept quiet.
