    My ancestor was John Olley, (regimental no. 3338) who died in service at Hobart Town, 16th June 1862 [Coroner’s report, #5322, 17th June 1862). “ On 14th June he “went to sleep in harness room of the house of his master, Major Edward Hungerford Eager” [Anglesea Barracks] and “there placed a certain portable stove containing a fire made with Port Arthur Coal… and was there suffocated by the excess of carbonic acid” . He “languished” until he died two days later.On 23 May 1860 he married Emmeline Bourne (age 21) in St Georges’s C of E, Battery Point, Hobart, and Jeffery John Olley was born 19 Dec 1861.
