    G'day Les,
    Thank you for your home page, and the oppertunity to e-mail you.
    Our William Woollett was born in England, we don't know where, although Rye
    has been mentioned, in c1808. He  came to Ausrtalia on the "Mary" in 1832,
    arriving in Tasmania, where he married Sarah Buxton in 1838. They had three
    children before Sarah died in 1844. William never married again. When
    william died in 1869 in New South Wales, Aust., his death certificate told
    us that his parents were "unknown" but his fathers occupation was listed as
    "Medical Profession". I can not find out anything about william before his
    arrival in Aust. Can you fit him in your family by any of this info? I'm
    sorry, there's not much to go by.
    Gay Woollett.
