    Note Christopher Sherlock and the widowed Martha Ann Harris did not marry in Tasmania until 1878, so the above couple may not be the right people, or they lived together as man and wife for some years before their marriage
    Career in Tasmania: Christopher Sherlock was appointed as a Police Constable at Morven (Evandale) on 5 November 1856. His age was given as 33, he arrived free to the colony, and was single. Religion: Roman Catholic. Education: ‘indifferently’. His height, trade, native place, ship to the colony and whether he’d been in the police previously were omitted from the record.
     
    According to the General Index at the AOT he was appointed to the ‘Launceston Penal Establishment’ on 15 September 1861, and appears to have remained with the Police Department until 1874.
