Research Notes

  • Research note 01: Sarah and her son William are most likely the people who sued John McNear for wages or 19/- in Launceston March 1890. Sarah and her daughter Harriet are most likely the people involved in a fracas in the house of their employer. Sarah was dismissed, but the services if Harriet were retained, but Sarah felt she was being detained by Charles GAUNT and his wife against her will. Certainly against Sarah's will. Sarah attacked their house with an iron hook, and broke numerous windows..6,7
