Does anyone have access to electoral rolls and look up in Dulverton area for John Parker born 1863-died Latrobe 1940.
A farmer from Dulverton who was estimated to be in this area for quite some time .I think it was in district of Devon in those days.I need close as possible to 1863 to try and find parents.Thanks if anyone has info.P.s or postal records .

Thanks again,Yes i know this John and Mary Herleyhey is actually Mary Early convict.I have his birth certificate as well but he marries a Rose Edmund and has other children.As to John Thomas i have his birth reg as well .Amelia his mother was actually a Jones not Walbourne.As you can see i have researched him for years and i still haven't found any siblings but if you check Tas Colonial index you will see his first of 17 children.This is why i think he was born overseas although at the age of 26 when he married 1889 he lived at Dulverton and continued until at least 1929 or more till he went to Latrobe.Electoral roll maybe from Devon
would find him.You can read other message boards on Tas about him.Thanks again for your time.

Hello again and thanks for taking all the time to find ifo,but it still leaves me at base 1.The James Randell
and Eliza Moss is correct and i have all the way back to Worschestershire in England etc.I also have Johns marriage certificate.Rhoda is a nick name and one child later was also called after the mother.James Londavra estate i know of as well as Charles Allen Parker from Isle of man Irish sea.All Randalls are from Fingal Eliza christened at St does have some info from one other but requires registration to find details but i will look again.
Charles Allen could be father of John but i only have children to 1859.Parker and Randell were neighbours so it is possible.So as you can see still no answer as yet.Thanks again

Thanks for your time .John Parker from the Don River is not him.Charles Allen Parker could be father but i have no other children after 1859 so i do not know if he had any others after this.The other parkers are not him either.I have Tas family history going through christening records from St Lukes church Latrobe to see if mentions birth origin from John and any relations from Pioneer cemetery that can shine light on him.Anyway thanks again.
