John Richard Lucas dies; 











1909: Widow dies: 
John Richard Lucas was born 13th December 1816 the son of Richard Lucas & his wife Elizabeth nee Fawkner. 
He was born a year after his Paternal Grandfather's death. His birth date was recorded nine years later at his Baptism, 
on the 14th December 1825 at Hobart Town, the Ceremony performed by William Bedford, his sister Amelia Sophia Lucas
 was baptised on the same day.  He seven siblings and a had a half-brother:  Thomas Green [the younger] [1810-post 1846]  
by his mother's previous marriage. 

Paternal; 
John Richard's grandparents arrived at Sydney Cove during the first two years of the Colony. Born in England, his 
grandfather Thomas Lucas, a former Marine of the First Fleet to Botany Bay leaving the motherland in 1787.  
His grandmother Ann Howard was a former convict of the 2nd Fleet arriving in 1790. 
After remaining at Sydney Cove the couple settled with a grant of land at the fledgling Colony at Norfolk Island. 
They were relocated at Brown’s River near Hobart Town in 1808.  His grandfather was a Freemason and much research 
has been done regarding the Family's ties in England. 

Maternal;
John Richard's mother Elizabeth was the daughter of John Fawkner [convict] and his wife Hannah [nee Pascoe],
who were one of the first families to colonize Hobart after an aborted attempt at a settlement at Sullivan’s Cove in 1803.  
At the age of nine Elizabeth with her mother and brother, were free settlers voyaging on the same ship as her convict father 
John Fawkner.

John Richard and his siblings spent their early childhood around Glenorchy, Tasmania.   
Their father was known to have held Nash's Farm bequeathed to him by his father and subsequently held a further 100 acres 
next to his younger brothers Nathaniel had the 100 acres on the other side of John to the south east in the District of Strandford,
which lay a few miles north of Kingston where their father’s original Grant lay.

Hobart Courier: Friday 29th March, 1833;
Whereas on Wednesday night, the 20th instant, my apprentice John Richard Lucas,  aged 15yrs, absconded from my 
service without any lawful cause or provocation, and carried off with him some money and sundry other articles, 
my property.  All persons are hereby cautioned against  harbouring or employing the said John Richard Lucas, 
my apprentice, as a warrant has been granted by the Assistant Police Magistrate for his apprehension.
William  Copperwheat. Coroner of Bathurst and Argyle Streets. March 28th  1833.
National Library of Australia [NLA] online  
Later investigations revealed that William Copperwheat was a wheelwright in Hobart.

At the age of twenty-four John Richard Lucas formed a relationship with fifteen-year-old Sarah Porter and 
a child was conceived in November 1840.
Five months later John Richard Lucas married Sarah Porter then sixteen, on the 10th April 1841, 
the marriage recorded at Hobart Town according the rites of the Church of England, the officiating 
Minister was W. J. Aislabie.  
The witnesses on the document were William Pascoe Lucas and Amelia Sophia Lucas, the siblings of John.  
All parties signed their names and John Richard was recorded as a Publican.

Sarah Porter was baptised at Hobart Town on the 9th May 1825 the daughter of George Porter [convict] 
                        and his wife Susannah O'Brien [baptised Susannah Mely Screech 1790].  
                        Sarah's father George Porter was previously a convict arriving on the 2nd Fleet to Sydney Cove 
                        per Scarborough [2nd voyage] in 1790. 
                        Sarah's mother Susannah was 20years younger than her father and was born at sea aboard 
                        the 'Lady Juliana' arriving as an infant in 1790 the daughter of Susannah Mortimer [Convict].
                        The Porters were also early settlers in Glenorchy near Hobart and both George and Susannah
                        had been resettled from the early Norfolk Island farming settlement in 1808. 
                        They later settled at Black Snake [now known as Graton] on the edge of the Derwent River, 
                        7kms south of Brighton where her father was now a Constable and Farmer.
John Richard’s recorded occupation as Publican is not surprising in that both his paternal and maternal 
Uncles were also involved in the Industry.  
1)  His Paternal Uncle Thomas Lucas [the younger] who had became the licensee of the “City of London Arms”  
     Hotel in Campbell Street, Hobart in October 1823.  
     At the time of John Richard’s marriage in 1841, his uncle Thomas Lucas was by then forty-seven and a 
     successful businessman.  Thomas also had interests in the Whaling Industry but always retained his 
     license for the Hotel, recorded as living on the premises till his death in 1846. 
     [details in the Epilogue - Biography of his paternal grandfather father Thomas Lucas 'Snr']
2)  John Richard's Maternal Uncle John Pascoe Fawkner had built the Cornwall Hotel at Launceston. 
     John Richard Lucas was considered JPF's favorite nephew. 
     [details of JPF in the Epilogue - Biography of his maternal grandfather John Fawkner] 
3)   William Patterson the spouse the spouse of John Richard's mother's Aunt i.e. Elizabeth Patterson nee O'Brien 
       who was the half-sister of Sarah's mother.  
       William was licensee at 'The Mogul Tavern' in Argyle St. in 1837 & the 'Pembroke Inn' Richmond/Sorell in 1849.
       [See details in the Epilogue - Biography of Susannah Mortimer & Thomas O'Brien]
John Richard named one of his daughters Lucy 'Patterson' Lucas.
After their marriage John Richard and Sarah moved to Brighton where four months later Sarah gave birth to a son, John Richard Lucas born on the 6th August 1841 This child did not to survive and died 12 days later on the 18th August 1841. Remaining at Brighton their second child Ann Lucas was born on the 13th June 1842.   This child also did not survive buried the next day on 28th June 1842. The following year in 1843 John Richard and Sarah traveled to the far north of the Island some distance to Horton where more Issue were born. Sophia Lucas born 19th May 1843 at Horton. Ann Lucas[unnamed female] born 28th August 1845 at Horton. Child 5: Susan Lucas born 15th July 1847 at Horton. Child 6: Thomas Pascoe Lucas born 2nd February 1850 at Horton. John Richard's mother Elizabeth Lucas [nee Fawkner] died at the age of fifty-six on the 23rd April 1851 of an abscess on the lung at his paternal Uncle John Lucas's property at Kingston. JR's uncle John Lucas was noted as the informant. Child 7: Sarah Lucas [unnamed female] b. 11th August 1852 at Horton. John Richard purchased 80 acres of land from Mr. Emmett at Diamond Head near Horton, North Tasmania, buying the adjoining parcel of acreage to his sister Ann and her husband William Coventry who had also moved to the area. Diamond Head: Mr. Emmett was already a prominent figure at Circular Head when he bought the block. A well respected official who had worked originally as the VDL Co. clerk and storekeeper, Emmett left their employ after nine years. He was a coroner in 1855, was acting police magistrate for a short period ending in 1856 and was later a member of the Circular Head Marine Board. Two years after Emmett's purchase, the company recorded the names of 15 further buyers, most of them described as farmers. It is not clear however how many occupied their land in 1853 and some, like the surgeon, Dr Andrew Mowbray, and cleric, Rev.T.N. Grigg, would have seen it as an investment.   Denis Carroll, who bought 80 acres, was one of the early Forest settlers, as were Samuel Atkins and John Richard Lucas. Other farmers who bought land were Thomas Gray, Henry Webb, William Smedley, Thomas Brugh, William Coventry and John Robinson."
Sarah Lucas was buried at Horton on the 3rd June 1854 at the recorded age of twenty-nine, 
the cause of death noted as ‘Flooding’.
Note:  Two of Sarah's daughters i.e. Sophia Lucas [who would have been now aged eleven] 
and Sarah Lucas [now aged two years] have not been found on subsequent records.   

Sarah was survived by  her husband John Richard Lucas of thirteen years marriage and her 
surviving children; [Sophia aged eleven?], Ann aged nine, Susan aged seven, Thomas Pascoe 
aged four and [Sarah aged two?].  
It is almost certain that John Richard’s sister Amelia and her husband William Coventry living 
nearby, helped John Richard with his young children during and after the tragedy.

Three months later John Richard's Maternal Grandfather John Fawkner [the elder], 
 died on the 24th September 1854 of Bronchitis at Pascoe vale, Victoria at the age of  84 years. 
His widow [3rd wife] soon after lived with his son John Pascoe Fawkner and his wife Eliza [nee Cobb].
A year after Sarah’s death John Richard received a letter from his maternal Uncle John Pascoe Fawkner in Melbourne,
who had also written a similar letter to John Richard’s father Richard Lucas.  
The aging Uncle asked if John might consider sending one of his daughters to the mainland for company for his wife 
and in return he would see to her education. John Richard sent his daughter Ann.

            Dear Richard [meaning John Richard]                                 
            I did not write sooner, thinking that I would visit VDLand.  At present this is not likely.   
            How are you, and the family.  How many are you - what are you doing, are you  prospering 
            or not – write [back] fully.  Mrs. Fawkner, says that she wants a little girl for company 
            – Have you  any such little one – can you interest her if you have one in Mrs. F – she will 
            see to her education and future advancement, and as we have no children, it might be of 
            advantage to one of yours.  Think it over and let us know at your earliest. I have written 
            your father on the same subject.  Both the Mrs. Fawkners* are well, I am a little better.
            Accept dear Richard my best wishes for you and yours and believe me your true friend 
            John Pascoe Fawkner.
            To Mr. R Lucas Circular Head  VDLand.

June 7th 1855, Smith Street, Collingwood
Dear Nephew,
            Your daughter arrived here safe and well yesterday – Mrs F. and I were out at Pascoe vale 
            but we had a female in charge of the house who received and took care of Anne. 
            She was sick on the passage but soon got over that.  The Viper came up the River, and the 
           Captain brought Anne out to Collingwood himself. She seems to like the place, and already
           Mrs. F. Senior has begun to teach her. Her voyage has not hurt her in the least, she seems 
           in good health and good Spirit. I think both of the Mrs. F.’s will like her. 
           Anne desires me to state that she sends her love and duty to her dear father and love 
           to her sisters and brother.  Both Mrs Fawkners send their  best respects to you and to all 
           the little ones. I am, my dear Nephew, your friend and relative, 
            John P Fawkner.

Sophia Lucas [1843-?]:  born 19th May 1843 Horton, of John Richard Lucas and his 1st wife Sarah [nee Porter].
  
                                                  No further evidence for Sophia has been found to date, although her sister full sister Susan named 
                                                  her youngest child’s middle name 'Sophia', suggesting that the two sisters may have been together for some time.
                                                  She may have died aged 11yrs with her mother in the Flooding at Diamond Head in 1854 and her body not found
                                                  thus no burial.
                                                  Her youngest sister Sarah, aged 2yrs in 1834 who certainly died before 1862 with no record of death/burial may  
                                                  also have died under the same circumstance. 
                                                  See note relating to her mother's death.
Ann Lucas [1845-1936]:  born 28th August 1845 Horton, of John Richard Lucas and his 1st wife Sarah [nee Porter].

                                                  Ann Lucas remained with her maternal uncle John Pascoe Fawkner .  
                                                  At the age of forty-one she married a friend of the Fawkners’ John James Walsh [her senior by 20 years] 
                                                  at Geelong in 1884 under the name 'Elizabeth' Ann Lucas.
                                                  There were two possible children of the marriage born to John 'Joseph' Walsh and Elizabeth Ann Lucas;

                                                                      Robert Butler Walsh born at Drouin? in 1888
                                                  The birth of Robert would have brought Ann's age to forty-five. 
                                                   If same John Joseph Walsh died in 1877 at the age of sixty-six.
