My husband is descended from Reginald and Elma Jane Izard buried at Carrick. We visited their graves early in 2009 when visiting Tasmania from WA. Is there any way of finding out the names of the other three Izards buried there?
I am assuming the double grave is Reginald's parents George and Elizabeth, and the single grave George's father maybe? I have been doing a bit of research and am thinking the original Izard was actually George Isitt, a convict on board Forfarshire arriving in 1843. Isitt is a version of Izard/Izzard apparently and when looking up marriage records it was spelt George Issett married to a Jane 'Unknown' in 1855, Morven - think they married later so they didn't have to apply to marry as son George was born around 1845. Jane Isard later married a Peter Bailey in 1874 after the death of her husband in 1872 - so another spelling again.
I know this is really more of a family history question but might get answers through here.
Hello Amy. I have checked TAMIOT, and apart from Elma Jane and Reginald, they have two other Izard graves at Carrick (both double graves, and both only named "Izard"). I think that your best bet would be to contact the Church administration (Carrick Anglican) to see who they have registered in their cemetery under the name of Izard.
Reginald and Elma Izard, are my Nan and Pop.
My Dad, is Maxwell.
Very interested to read your findings. I will ask my Mum who the other graves are, and get back to you. My Nan was a Hume.
Very interesting. You are more than welcome to email me.
I am married to Scott Freeman, Tania (nee Izard)'s son. I have gathered quite a bit on the George Isitt link and have lots of that information on my Ancestry.com tree. If you don't have access to Ancestry I can print out what I have and post to you. I have also got a lot of info from searching through the old newspapers online, including obituaries, death and funeral notices and other general news stories - including one advertisement in 1857 by Jane Isard posting a three pound reward to find her lost son George aged 12 years, your Pop's father (who they obviously found). All so interesting I am hooked on family history now.
Do you have any photos of your grandparents, or their parents? I have gathered a lot of info on the Hume's too. I will email you privately next time. Thanks so much for your contact.
