My ancestor was Richard Smith married in Sorell, Hobart Tasmania in 1854 to Sydney Iles. He died in Port Albert, Victoria in 1886. I am having trouble ascertaining which Richard Smith he is. Some of his descendents think he was a convict sent out to Tasmania in 1844 aged 20, son of George and Elizabeth (nee Hornet) and other descendents say he was born in Tasmania, in 1821 the son of George and Grace (nee Morrisby). His marriage and death certificates do not give parents names nor place of birth. His age on his marriage and death certificate indicate that he would be the convict but I would like to find conclusive proof either way. How do I do this??
