I have a Henrietta Robera Figg born 29/11/1875 Hobart, Tas, Aus.

She was the daughter of Henry Robert Figg born 1835 Clarence, Tas. He was baptised 6/6/1835 Clarence, Tas. he died 22/8/1912 Oatlands, Tas. He had 2 marriages. Her mother was Charlotte Fletcher Jones born 1840 Hobart, Tas. She was baptised 18/7/1840 Hobart, Tas. She died 29/4/1879 Oatlands, Tas. They married 23/3/1858 Hobart, Tas.

They had the following children:

1. Frederick Henry Figg born 16/11/1859 Glamorgan, Tas. he died 22/6/1861 Hobart, Tas.
2. Arthur Figg born 10/6/1861 Hobart, Tas.
3. Jean Douglas Figg born 17/3/1863 Hobart, Tas. She died 1/11/1907. She married George James Reeves 1886 Hobart (my bloodline).
4. Josephine Elizabeth Figg born 13/11/1865 Hobart, Tas. She married John Rennie 16/2/1886 Oatlands, Tas.
5. Florence Mabel Figg born 8/9/1867 Hobart, Tas. She married Albert Coventry 2/5/1888 Waratah, Tas.
6. Aldinga Albert Figg born 16/12/1869 Hobart, Tas. He married Margaret Kenna.
7. Adelaide Blanche Figg born 13/9/1871 Hobart, Tas.
8. Eldred Lavington Figg born 16/6/1873 Hobart, Tas.
9. Henrietta Robert Figg born 29/11/1875 Hobart, Tas. Married unknown Tapp.
10. Frances Alberta Gertrude Figg born 29/9/1877 Oatlands, Tas. She married Peter McDermott 11/1/1899 campbell Town, Tas.

The females of this family do look like they are full aboriginal it was supposed to have come through their mother Charlotte. My great grandmother looked like a full aboriginal when she was alive i have also got a photo of one of the girls i think it may have been Henrietta i'm not 100% sure though, she looked the same as my great grandmother.

Hi, I am a descendent of Jean Douglass Figg b 1863. She has sometimes been listed in the records as Jane Figg, and there was another Jean Douglas Figg born in Hobart Tas in 1830, father William Figg and her mother was listed as not stated. This Jean D Figg married Thomas Taylor in 1845 and had 3 children. I would like to know more about Jean Douglass Figg (b 1863) and her mother Charlotte Jones. Jean would be my grt grt grandmother. I am not sure where the aboriginality comes from as my search on Charlotte says her parents Elizabeth Flanagan and Thomas Jones were both born in the UK. My email is if anyone has info that would be fab. D
