Unfortunately, the National Archives cannot assist with this inquiry. We are the archives of the Commonwealth government so most of our records date from 1901 onwards.
There are State government archives which hold records relating to the colonial period in Australia (i.e. the period before Federation in 1901). The contact details of these organisations can be found here: Fact Sheet 2.
For these records I would suggest that you contact the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
