Catherine (Kate) Marriott Watson was the grandmother of my paternal grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). Catherine Marriott Watson was the daughter of Brereton Ross Porter Pemberton Rolla Watson and Catherine Wade (her mother was Catherine Morgan, one of the first colonial children born in Tasmania, and the daughter of the First Fleet convict Richard Morgan by his third partner Catherine Clark).
Catherine Marriott Watson’s father, Brereton Watson, was the son of John Watson and Angelina Marriott of London. The Watson’s are connected to and descended from the Watsons of Rockingham Castle, Rutland. These photographs were made in the late 1800s.
This group of photographs (clockwise) are of Catherine and her siblings James, Charles and George. Catherine, the youngest, was born at Prosser Plains, Tasmania in 1851 and died at Scottsdale, Tasmania in 1943.
