  • Notes  Married:
    • The City of Devonport Tasmania

      The area was first surveyed by Captain Charles Hardwicke in 1823. The area was originally known as Port Frederick,[2] then Mersey River, the name of the river flowing through the town. Later it became two separate towns - Formby on the western side, and Torquay on the east (first settled by Charles Oldaker).[3] The towns were joined to become Devonport (named for Devonport in England) in 1890
