We hope this site assists others in their family research of direct and many branches of the extended family.

Remember even though some of those we love most are no longer with us "They will always be in our memories, thoughts and hearts". A tear is often followed by a smile.

SHERLOCK - KING family lines in Australia began with the arrival of Sarah (or Maria) KING in 1800 on the "Speedy" as a guest of England and the arrival in 1806 of a seaman known as Samuel SHERLOCK (free) aboard the "Fortune".

On 25th October 1808 in Sydney, Samuel SHERLOCK married  Sarah (Maria) KING in Sydney, it was not until after 1817 when they moved to Van Diemans Land (Tasmania) that we find in 1823 the birth of an only known (recorded) child "John Henry SHERLOCK (1823-1883)" to Samuel and Sarah/Maria SHERLOCK (nee: KING) 3rd Great-grandparents.

From that point the SHERLOCK family line in Australia started and I am proud to be a descendant of line the SHERLOCK family that began in 1823 when Samuel and Sarah/maria had a son and that son John Henry SHERLOCK went on and married Ann HART (1823-1920) the 1st daughter (4th child) of William Doubleday and Ann HART (nee: GREEN), I am extremely proud to be able to say both my grandparents were the first generation of Australian SHERLOCK's born in Van Diemans Land (Tasmania) to my knowledge.  

Our heartfelt gratitude and admiration for the work in research and recording of family history is extended to Mary LOWE (deceased), Jan STEVENS, Pam SHERLOCK (née: NORTON) and Yvonne PURDY (née: SHERLOCK) to name but a few, as well as to everyone who has in the past and will in the future please accept my humble thanks.
