Can anyone help please?
I have identified on Ancestry some relatives who are shown on the Australian Electoral Rolls 1901 -1936 database as being in Bass, Tasmania.
I don't have a worldwide subscription but would like to know what the record says about my relatives.
Names are:-
Robert Jocelyn De Coetlogon
Caroline Mary de Coetlogon
Robert Joseph de Coetlogon
Thanks in advance for any help.

1919 is the same as 1914.

Looks like Robert retired between 1919 and 1928.

Robert Joseph seems to be the same person as Robert Jocelyn. It is transcribed as Joseph but the image is not.

There's mention of a Canon de Coetlogon.

I'm a bit in the dark here.......am I on the right track?

Thanks a lot, it's interesting that they are at Brattleby in Tasmania because the family were in a place of the same name in Lincolnshire in 1871! It doesn't surprise me that Robert is clergyman as he is from a long line of them here.

Can't find anything on AVRI.

I'll have a scout around.

Well that's not on the AVRI (that's supposed to go to 1899 in Tassie) lol.

Hi,
Thanks a lot that's brilliant. Just realised when I said about Brattleby - that'll be the name of their house not the place - doh!
Is it possible to easily find out if they had any children? is there a site that would give this info that I could access?

Margaret...I'm useless to you now as they are not even on the AVRI.

I'd pm Flashie and see what she has.

I had a quick look on the archives and Graves of Tasmania and couldn't find anyone of that name other than their marriage.

But Graves of Tasmania doesn't have all the cemeteries online yet...especially the North of the State.

I did find Caroline's grave......I'll be back with it.
