Andrewina Heald was born in Leith, Scotland to Andrew Low Morison (died Scotland 1871) and Helen Simpson Doig (died Kansas USA 1897). The Morison family (Andrewina, her parents, three sisters and a brother) arrived in Melbourne on the ship Venilia in Dec 1854. They were living in Patrick Street, Hobart in 1858 when her sister Jemima was born. The family had moved to Launceston by 1866 where Heald and Morison were tailors, hatters and general outfitters in Brisbane Street, Launceston, later known as H Heald, St John Street. The Morison family returned to Scotland, but Andrewina stayed and married Henry Heald junior on 28 Feb 1867 in Launceston and had nine children: Ellen Mary (Nellie), Andrew Henry, Rolfe Grace, Ernest, Robert William, George Morison, Ruth May, Ida Pia (Ada) and Dorothy Muriel Jean. Henry and Andrewina ran the tailor shop in Brisbane Street, then in the Quadrant and later in St John Street. The Tasmanian Exhibition 1891-92 official catalogue states that Mrs Heald and Miss Heald were in the Tasmanian Exhibition Choir but, sadly, Andrewina died prior to the opening of the Exhibition on 7 Sep 1891. Her husband Henry died suddenly on 28 Dec 1893 whilst rowing on the Tamar River. See The Examiner 24 Jun 2006, p. 41.
