Hi Colin, I knew he left from London in 1830. I have found Charles Alford from Frome Somerset, with brother William (he named his first son William) born 1808 but after birth can't find him. Will send to Tas again and ask for mariage cert maybe something on there. Thanks for help.
I have not managed to find anything on your Charles sorry about that, seems to be very elusive.
Found that none of the passenger lists were kept from that time on depatures from London, not sure if you know that is where the resource left from that he left on.
