Edward Panton (my great great Grandfather) was born at Grantham, Lincolnshire 8th Aug 1997. He became free by servitude in 1826 and became a farmer at Broadmarsh (van Diemens Land). In 1836 he returned England and married Jane Elizabeth Henningham. They returned to VDL in Feb 1837 and lived at the Broadmarsh farm until about 1848. They had hotels at Hobart and Ross before settling in Launceston. EE Panton died at his Enfield Hotel in Launceston in 1885. They had 6 daughters and 3 sons between 1837 and 1854. The eldest son Bladen George Panton (my great Grandfather - born 1843) became a master mariner and captained several sailing ships which traded between the colonies and England. He was the captain of an iron clipper ship the Salsette which burnt in the South Atlantic in 1895. He and his family retired to Tasmania in 1901 - he died at Ulverstone in 1917. The second son (Edward Henry Panton - born 1845)was a hotelier and businessman in Launceston and was Mayor of Launceston in 1900. He died in 1938 aged 94.
