Charles Bellinger - Two months after they sought permission to marry in September 1836 Charles and Mary Ann Thomson exchanged vows on 7 Nov 1836 in the Sorell District with James Norman recorded as the chaplain. The event was registered under the surname of Ballinger and Mary Ann's surname was recorded as Thornton. Neither Charles nor Mary Ann's age is noted. Charles' sister Elizabeth and her husband John Willis were witnesses, with all parties recorded as living in Sorell.
The following year the couple's first child was born on 23 December 1837 in the Sorell district. The named the boy Charles after his father.
Mr, Mrs and child Bellinger came 16 Dec 1839 on coastal ship Caroline
Charles and Ann's next child John was born in Victoria on 1 August 1841 so at some stage during the late 1830's Charles and Mary Ann had moved across the strait to the relatively new colony of Melbourne. The birth was not registered in Victoria although that is John's stated birth place on his death certificate. The new residence didn't last long however and it is possible that Charles and Mary Ann were the same family that arrived back in the Van Diemen's Land in the early months of 1842 from Port Phillip.
On 18 Feb 1842 a Mrs Bellinger and 3 children arrived in Hobart aboard the "Adelaide". On 2 Mar 1842 a Charles Bellinger arrived in Hobart aboard the "Flying Squirrel". To further compound the mystery a John Bellinger arrived in Hobart on 28 Mar 1842 aboard the "Adelaide", again from Port Phillip. A significant additional mystery is who was the third child if at this point Charles and Mary Ann only had the two sons Charles and John?
Certainly the family had made their way back to Tasmania as on 31 December 1843 Charles Bellinger is recorded on a return of Van Diemen's Land Company tenants in the district of Circular Head as a farmer by trade, with a wife, 2 children, and 2 labourers (not convicts). 21 days later on 21 January 1844 they had their son John christened in St. Paul's Church in Stanley.
