Perhaps you would like to know more about Thomas Barwick. Sarah Goodborn was Thomas' s second wife and was possibly the sister of his first wife, Eliza Goodborn, who appears to have died in childbirth. He had three children with Eliza: John (1835), Helen (1839) and Thomas (1844, died in infancy). In 1851 Helen was a servant in a house at Northbourne. Thomas went to Tasmania in 1856; his parents had gone with his 4 youngest siblings in 1840. John had gone with his Uncle Richard in 1854 and had then applied for his father to follow. Thomas lived a quiet life in Tasmania, probably working for his father and brothers. John became a successful farmer and local councillor.Eliza married her cousin John. Helen, who was usually known as Ellen, married John Goldsmith and had 12 children. In her old age she reverted to using Helen. She died in Tasmania in 1931 at the age of 92. I am her namesake, Helen Barwick (although my parents were not aware of the connection).
