(At this time John Henry would have been about 18 years of age, wouldimagine perhaps he was still in apprenticeship, indentureship in respect of his trade ?. Where did John Henry live between 1841 and 1855 ?, (a period of 14 years), remembering John was about 32 by time he and Ann married in 1855.) The family must have been in contact or else how was cotact made when Samuel passd on ?. 22 Oct 1851 Shipping records show: Sherlock John, travelled Steerage on "City of Melbourne" departing 22 Oct 1851 from Launceston bound for Melbourne, ship to Colony "Shamrock", shown as being "Free", POL220/1 P 454. Was this our John Henry travelling to Victoria ?. 23 July 1852 Victorian Shipping record show a John SKURLOCK travelled from Victoria to Tasmania, it is very possibly a spelling error when record entry made ?: John Skurlock 23 July 1852 Melbourne From Tasmania on "Shamrock" Passenger Reel 4-4 Section POL 20/9/3 Frame 44 SLTX/AO/EP 138. Was this John Henry returning to Tasmania from Melbourne in 1852 ?. If the girls did returned to Tasmania in 1852 with John where did they live ?. If the girls did in fact return to Tasmania in 1852 surely they would have been at the wedding of their brother John to Ann HART when they married in 1855 ?. 9 March 1853 Mr John SHERLOCK travelled from Launceston on "City of Sydney" bound for "Portland Bay" hie ship to Colony was " Shamrock" he is shown as bein "Free". 28 Feb 1854 A Mrs Ann SHERLOCK travelled from Launceston to Melbourne on the "Lady Bird" in the company of Miss H SHERLOCK both travelled Cabin class. --- Shipping records should show when Johns sisters travelled back to Tasmania ?. Question ?: 1/ Who did John live with for the 11 years (1841-1852) before going to Victoria in 1852. 2/ The research results of Mary LOWE leads to belief that at least 2 of his sisters went back to Tasmania with him after Samuel passed away ?. 3/ Did John also travel back and forwards between Tasmania and Victoria in the period between 1841 and 1852 ?. 4/ Why did John prefer to stay in Tasmania ?, was it for his love of Ann ?. Okay so now it's your turn, please let Reg know what you think ?, or have you solved this quandary and sadly not yet shared it with others yet ?, go on email Reg at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com why should he be the only one going nuts trying to solve all this and other questions. ===
