Richmoth is my Great Great Aunt.
Her mother was Sarah Lawson, alias Sarah Standering, alias Sarah Jacobs. Her mother also spent time in the Orphan School upon the arrival of her convict mother, Euphemia, in 1828. Sarah died a lingering death in the Hobart General Hospital after her clothes caught fire while she was cooking soup. Richmoth's father was probably ex-convict Jacob Standring per Asiatic in 1843, with whom his mother lived but did not marry. Her father abandoned them and went to Sydney about two and a half years before Sarah's death; around the time of Richmoth's birth.
Richmoth married Thomas Holoway (sic) in the home of Mr J Ainsworth, 234 Argyle Street, Hobart on 9 Nov 1893. They had a son Reginald Thomas Holloway in Hobart on 23 Feb 1898 and they lived at Police Point where Thomas farmed. However Reggie died in the Hobart General Hospital on 13 Sep 1902, aged just four and a half years. He was buried at Surges Bay General Cemetery, Esperance, Huon.
Richmoth died on 26 Sep 1926, aged 66, and was buried with her son, Reggie.
