One of the posts on this forum,Niec spoke of an ancestor Capt. Thomas Hansen who passed away in Cadmans Cottage. I too am a descendant of Capt Thomas Hansen, alhtough I only just found that our about a year ago, and I have former convicts on my Mums side from Nubeena and Hobart Tasmania. And to top it all off I'm a Kiwi. lol.
Love Tasmania, my grandfather spoke so lovingly of it and told us stories of his youth. He was born in 1876 and his grandparents were both convicts.
