I believe that Elizabeth Wishart [WORSHIP being a miss spelt or heard version of surname] is my Great great grandmother. The names of her mother and father are correct and she was born about the given date in Glascow. Elizabeth married George Williams a policeman in Avoca, Tasmania on 28th Jan. 1839 and had a child, Hannah Eliz. Williams. She was widowed in 1844 and married Benjamin Frankland [miss spelt franklin] on 13th March 1846 in Hobart. They had at least 4 children in Tasmania, William, Elizabeth Harriet,Sarah Ann & Agustus George were registered and three more at Tarraville, Victoria Henry Benjamin, Lavinia Harriet and Frederick Daniel in 1859, who is my Great grandfather. The Franklands lived and worked in Tarraville at the bakery general store bussiness run by Elizabeth's mother and step father Elizabeth and Henry Black. They moved to Melbourne after being disappointed by the outcomes of Henry Black's will and Elizabeth's mothers death.
Elizabeth died during 1872 and is buried at Melbourne General Cemetery
