I am seeking information on Hannah (Anne) BEST (nee RUSSELL) who married Charles BEST (4 Jun 1790 - 3 Feb 1868), the son of Charles BEST & Elizabeth LILLYWHITE, on the 7th October 1809 in Hamsey, Sussex, England. It appears she was born circa 1785 in Sussex and died in Launceston, Tasmania. Information from family sources states she was buried on the 9th March 1830 in the Cypress Street cemetery in Launceston after being treated at Launceston Hospital for inflamation.
Elizabeth and Charles arrived in Van Diemans Land with their family on the sailing ship Orelia on the 8th May 1829. He was in charge of Southdown sheep for the Cressy Company and his brother was in charge of Devon cattle for the same company.
