Bennett / Anthony in Tasmania

We are searching for information on Rose Sophia Anthony who was married to / in a defacto relationship with Thomas Bennett in the Launceston area in Tasmania. No birth (circa 1828) or marriage certificate (circa 1852)  has been found for Rose. Her death certificate states that she came to Australia as a child age 12 circa 1840. Rose used a variety of names on her childrens birth certificates- aka Sarah Smith, Sarah Rose, Rose Anany, Rose Antony.. Rose died in 1911 and wad buried in Cypress Street Cemetery, Launceston, Tasmania.

Hi Neil

Yep Rose is an enigma. We have her birth date now but no place. We are in contact with another descendant of Rose and Tom and she was able to provide that.

We have been to Derby tracing Tom's parents and we are quite happy to share info. Please email us at
