I checked on the Tasmanian Pioneer Index and there is a record of their marriage - 10 Oct 1842 Hobart, Richard was 28, Mary was 30. (ref. 70/1842 - 37 - details can be looked up on microfisch). Also on Archives Tas they were granted permission to marry - 52/1/2 page 167. There is a record under Colonial Families, but just for the couple, no children. There is no birth of a son or a Richard to them on the Index, but then not all were registered. Did they leave Tasmania to live elsewhere? (I checked under spelling "Reid" also, but nothing.) Your search continues!
