(Research):William's Headstone at Latrobe Catholic Cemetery reads: Native of London, Died November 22 1886, aged 84 years. Several decendants have failed to find when & how He arrived in Tasmania, Australia. The closest guess was a William Steers who travelled "steerage" to Tasmania on the ship Lady Leigh on 13 December 1852, which left Port Phillip on 6 December 1852. The first official record we have of William was when he purchased 2 acres of land from the Crown in West Parade, Deloraine, Tasmania for the sum of 110 pounds. He later sold the land to the Catholic Church.
