This is possibly John Garrett, born about 1837, who married Christina Ross in Launceston on 18 Sep 1861. Their seven children were born between 1862 and 1877. John was a butler at 'Brickendon' and later moved to Launceston where he had a grocery shop in Wellington Road. At the time of his death, on 4 Jan 1916 at the age of 79, he was described as a steward. Christina died at her residence in Vernon Street on 14 Aug 1917 aged 80. Both were buried at Carr Villa.

Christina and their daughter Alice Wilkins also appear in the Launceston Family Album. This photo was labelled G Garrett, but it appears more likely to be John Garrett.
