Ashman Family

My interest with the Ashman family stems from the probability that the first Ashmans arrived in Tasmania with some of my Barkers as they were step related. Ashmans also married into my Barker family after their arrival in Tasmania.

John ASHMAN born 1820 CAM ENG, died 1846 CAM ENG married:
Susannah MARSH born c1823 CAM ENG. Susannah remarried a widower:
John BARKER born c1827 CAM ENG died 1874 TAS AUS.
John Barker was previously married to Sarah PEARSON.

Susannah together with her new husband John Barker her three Ashman children and his two Barker children, and John's brother Stephen, came to Tasmania some time before April 1856. John Barker's father Robert was already living in Cleveland Tasmania as a convict. John settled there with his family and step-family.
