William George or George William (both seem to have been used) has been incorrectly listed under the surname Clann.  The correct name was Glann.  The surname seems to be one which is easily altered even when typed.  I have even found it spelt Flann.

His father was John Glann a convict born in Nottingham England who arrived in Tasmania on the 'Equestrian' and maried Martha Morgan (13.8.1851) who was also a convict arriving on the 'Lloyd'

His mother Martha died 19.8.1860 aged 39 years and his father John was murdered 12.3.1861 aged 40years.

William /George married (5.9.1878) Louisa Jane Coker  and they had 6 children before he died 30.1.1892 at his home at 7 Goulburn Street Hobart aged 38y.   Louisa later remarries in 1898 in New South Wales.

He had the following siblings: James who married Emily Jones, William Mark who died in 1853 and Walter who died as a result of a kick from a horse.  There was also a female born 29.12.1850 but I have been unable to find any trace of her.

My husbands Great Great Grandfather Mark Glann was the brother of John Glann the convict.
