Child 6. Olivia Lucas. Born 18th April, 1795. By Tricia Hacker.
Olivia Lucas was born on the 18th April, 1795 on Norfolk Island, the sixth child of Nathaniel and Olivia Lucas. She married John Hodgetts on the 8th April, 1811 at St. Philip’s C.E. Church, Sydney.
Olivia and John had thirteen children, three of whom were born in New South Wales prior to their departure for V.D.L. in 1816. They settled in the Launceston area and worked a substantial farm of 460 acres (though there is some thought that this may have been the combined acreage of the Lucas family), growing wheat and potatoes, and stocking cattle and swine.
It is believed they had one government servant. Olivia’s mother, Olivia Gascoigne/ Lucas, and most of her brothers and sisters also settled in the vicinity of Launceston.
Olivia died on the 22nd June, 1851, twenty years earlier than her husband John, who died on the 13th August, 1871. She was buried at Christ Church, Longford, V.D.L., on the 26th June, 1851.
