He suffered from epilepsy. This seems to be a genetic inheritance from the Richardson side as William Albert Richardson's little daughter died of epilepsy and pneumonia at the age of 14 .

William died by accidental drowning.

Henry Geo Roman's birth in the district of Fingal, Tasmania, was registered by his mother, who gave her name as Mary Anne Gilligan of Clifton Lodge.

The Personal column of the Launceston Examiner of 1 Apr 1943 noted George's 100th birthday:

'Born at Avoca, Tasmania, Mr George H. Romans recently celebrated his 100th birthday at Arrowtown, N. Z., where he has lived for the past [66] years. Among 400 messages of congratulation which he received was a cablegram from the King and Queen.'

The Auckland Star of 13 Sep 1945 had an obituary for George Romans::
DEATH AT AGE OF 102
MR GEORGE H. ROMANS
P. A. INVERCARGILL, this day.
The death has occurred at Arrowtown of Mr George Henry Romans at the age of 102 years. He was born in Tasmania in 1843, and came to New Zealand in 1875. He went to Arrowtown during the gold mining boom. For many years Mr Romans took an active part in the life of Arrowtown. He had 35 years' continuous service as a borough councillor and several times refused nomination for the office of mayor. He was one of the oldest Freemasons in New Zealand. Mr Romans was interested in all forms of sport, and owned and raced several horses. His second wife died in 1938 and he is survived by four sons and six daughters. One son, Lieutenant-Colonel R. E. Romans, D.S.O., died of wounds in Italy in January, 1944.

All of George and Mary's children were baptised at St Paul's Anglican Church in Arrowtown. The family continue to have a connection with the church, including ongoing maintenance and providing flowers for services.

From the website of the Anglican Parish of Wakatipu in 2014:
'St. Paul's has remained almost unchanged in over one hundred years. In 1973 a stained glass window was gifted by Mrs Sally Lusk as a memorial to her late husband. The window in a modern theme depicting the trees, hills and valleys of the area and the gold from which the town sprang, blends with, and complements the Victorian architecture of the building.
A further stained glass window was consecrated in 1992. It was gifted by members of the Romans family as a memorial to George Henry and Mary Elizabeth Romans who worshipped at St. Paul's for many years. George Romans when he died at the age of 102 was still serving as Church Warden.'

Henry left Southampton on the ship 'Columbia' on 16 May 1954, heading for Montreal, and intending to reside permanently in Canada. He gave his address as 106 Muirshiel Crescent, Glasgow, and his occupation as mech. leather worker. There were no other Synnots with Henry on the ship.

There was another transatlantic crossing later that year - on 16 Oct 1954 Henry D. Synnot arrived in New York from Glasgow on the 'Egidia'. There is no age given for Henry. He gave a Canadian address - 244 Benson Ave, Toronto 10, Ontario. Perhaps he made a return trip back to Scotland after his initial arrival in Canada in May - or, more likely, this is another Henry D. Synnot, possibly his son. There are no other Synnots on the passenger list for this trip.

Henry was a native of Brooklyn, U.S.A. He came to New Zealand around 1880. In the 1880-1881 and 1885-1886 electoral rolls he is recorded as living at Ngunguru and working as a bushman. When he married Mary Howell in 1887 his occupation was still as a bushman. He also worked as a bricklayer and a farmer. In June 1905 he is noted in the notebook of Henry Bartlett, builder, as working on the Wade School. He died in August 1905 of "acute intestinal obstruction", leaving Mary with a young family of six. He was buried at the Silverdale Anglican cemetery.

Her birth is not recorded in the Lady's Island baptism register.
 
Margaret Sinnott and Michael Rossiter were married on 8 February 1864 at the Roman Catholic Chapel at Lady's Island.
 
Margaret was in the 1901 Irish census at Ballask, Parish of Kilmore.  She was the head of the family, a widow, and her occupation was as farmer.  At the same address were her son John (unmarried,a farmer’s son) and her sister-in-law Anne Rossiter (unmarried, a farmer’s daughter).
 
In the 1911 census, Margaret, age 75, was still at Ballask, Kilmore, described as the mother of John Rossiter, the head of the family.  John’s wife Kate (born in Buenos Ayres) was at the same address. 
Sinnott, Margaret (I3992)
 
268

Her great uncle Dom Placid Sinnott took Catherine and her sister Elizabeth and their Rossiter cousin (assumed to be Catherine) from Kilmore away to convents when they were young.

Catherine was never professed. She was a nun at Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur convent in Namur, Belgium. A photo of her inscribed Sr M Evengeline was sent to her mother Ellen Sinnott and taken on her death bed. She died in 1902 at the age of 22 in Vize, Turkey.

In 1832, Richard Walter Synnott graduated B. A., Vern at Trinity College, Dublin. Vern is an abbreviation for Comitia Verna - Spring Commencements. To take the highest degree in each Faculty is described in the Old Statutes as Commencing in that Faculty i.e. commencing as a Teacher or Doctor.

In 1836, he graduated M. A., Vern at Trinity College.

Richard left a straightforward will appointing his wife Henrietta and her brother Henry Sykes Thornton as his executors, and leaving most of his estate to Henrietta (words in the original that were not clear are replaced with asterisks ****):
'I Richard Walter Synnot of Lincolns Inn Esquire bequeath all the property over which I have any disposal to my wife Henrietta Synnot except as hereinafter mentioned and I make her sole residuary legatee.

In 1839, Robert Synnott graduated B. A., Vern at Trinity College, Dublin. Vern is an abbreviation for Comitia Verna - Spring Commencements. To take the highest degree in each Faculty is described in the Old Statutes as Commencing in that Faculty i.e. commencing as a Teacher or Doctor.

On 18 Nov 1864 The Times reported an unusual court case, involving Dr Synnot of 16 Eaton Terrace and his wife. Dr Synnot was summoned for threatening to horsewhip Gustavus Koenig of 19 Westbourne Place, Pimlico. The complainant had been seriously ill, and had been annoyed by itinerant organ-grinders opposite his door. The police had assisted him in abating the nuisance. When, on 9 Aug 1864, he went out to get an offender taken into custody, the drawing room window of the house opposite was opened, and the defendant's wife encouraged the man to continue playing. When the complainant said that such conduct was disgraceful, the defendant rushed to the window and said that if he (Koenig) did not leave he would give him a horse-whipping. The complainant said in court that he thought that the defendant meant what he said.
Dr Synnot admitted using the expression referred to. He said that the complainant's version of events was tolerably truthful, but that the story about being ill was a fiction. He said that the complainant had written him an insulting letter regarding the organ-men. Had he been asked in a gentlemanly way, he would willingly have complied with the request, but he would not submit to being bullied. When his wife had opened the window on the night spoken of, the complainant bellowed at and scolded her. He threatened to horsewhip him, and meant to do it if his misconduct continued. It was not to be borne that a man's wife was to be insulted and a crowd collected before his door in this way. He wished to know whether he was left without a remedy against a man for creating an annoyance of this description.
Mr Selfe (the magistrate) said that the complainant seemed to have the best right to complain of annoyance, and that if Mrs Synnot had been brought to court for aiding and abetting the organ-man in remaining, and the case had been proved against her, she would have felt the weight of the law.
The defendant, Dr Synnot, inquired whether the complainant had a right to send an organ-man away from playing in front of the house of another person. Mr Selfe replied that complainant might send him off if he played in the neighbourhood of his house or within his hearing, and if defendant encouraged him there, he would do so at his risk. He considered that it was disgraceful and unchristianlike to annoy a neighbour in this way, and defendant must fine one surety of £50 to keep the peace. Bail was given immediately.

In 1841 James and Elizabeth were living at Malew. In the 1841 census of Isle of Man, their daughter Catherine and her husband James Qualtrough were with them, as well as two of the Qualtrough children, Elizabeth (age 2) and William (age 1). The oldest child James, born in 1836, was not there, perhaps staying with another family.

In 1848 Andrew, aged 17 years, arrived at Port Chalmers, New Zealand aboard the immigrant ship 'Philip Lang' bound for Wellington. He was travellign with two older brothers, a sister in law and a nephew. He was a farm servant. He journeyed on to Wellington with his brother Robert.

In 1851 Robert Stewart was a household in the household of William and Charlotte Gemmell. William was an army Lieutenant on half pay. This Robert Stewart is identified as a child of Alexander and Jean by his birth place of Sorn, the same as his sister Agnes, and the same area where his father was born (Monkton, Parish of Sorn)

In 1871, Robert's mother-in-law, Lucy Morgan, an annuitant, was with Robert and his family at Barskimming Manor, Stair, Ayrshire. Lucy was with the family in the 1881 census return, also there was George Stewart age 7, born at Stair, a grandson of Robert. George was most likely the son of Robert and Charlotte's oldest daughter Jane, who would have been about 19 when George was born in 1873.

In 1855, William Forbes Synnot graduated B. A., Vern at Trinity College, Dublin. Vern is an abbreviation for Comitia Verna - Spring Commencements. To take the highest degree in each Faculty is described in the Old Statutes as Commencing in that Faculty i.e. commencing as a Teacher or Doctor.

Forbes Synnot was named as the father of Maryanne Synnot (illegitimate) in the record of Maryanne's baptism in the Parish of Loughgilly, County of Armagh on 25 Aug 1857. The mother's name was given as Catherine Mulligan, and the sponsor was Mary McDonnell. Forbes was described as 'acatholicus' i.e. non-Catholic.

William Forbes Synnot was awarded a Commission as a Lieutenant in the Armagh Regiment of Militia (the 75th Armagh Light Infantry) on 29 Dec 1854. Commissions in this militia were signed by the Lieutenant of the County or the Lord Lieutenant.

The same gazette advised on 29 July 1859 that Lieutenant William Forbes Synnot was appointed Captain in the Armagh Light Infantry Regiment of Militia on 12 Jul 1859, replacing Close who had resigned. James Porter Reid was appointed as a Lieutenant on 6 Jun 1861 to replace Synnot who had been promoted. This presumably refers to William's promotion to Captain in 1859.

A United Kingdom passport was issued to William F. Synnot on 1 May 1858.

On 27 Dec 1859, Wm. Forbes Synnot was admitted to the Armagh Lodge no. 409 of the Grand Lodge of Freemasons of Ireland. He received his Grand Lodge Certificate on 24 Jan 1860. It seems that Forbes was heading for a settled and conservative lifestyle in County Armagh.

But later in 1860, Forbes was in Australia. He left Liverpool on the 'Empress of the Sea' on 6 Sep 1860 and arrived on the 'Empress Of The Sea' in Melbourne, Victoria on 24 Nov. It appears that he emigrated alone, as no other family names are on the passenger list. There is no sign of his daughter Rose on the list, under any known family name.

Wm Forbes Synnot next appears on a 'List of Unclaimed Ship Letters for the Week Ending 15th Nov 1860' in the Victoria Government Gazette on 22 Nov 1860. His next move was to New Zealand - he was on a list of unclaimed letters in Wellington, New Zealand on 1 Jan 1861. It appears that his stay in Australia was very brief.

In partnership with Frederick Martin Chapman, Forbes farmed sheep at Pokawa Station near Te Aute, in the Hawkes Bay area. He was modest in describing himself as a sheepfarmer - the partnership leased 12,000 acres of Maori land at £330 per year, from sons of Hapuku and Puhara who were rangatira of the Ngati Kahungunu iwi. The value of the stock or other property owned by the partnership was £3,000.

There was a 'Synnot' on the passenger list for the s.s. Queen which left Napier for Wellington and southern provinces on 10 Dec 1862. As Forbes is the only known Synnot in Hawkes Bay at this time, it is almost certain that he was the passenger. On 28 May 1863 a Mr Synnot arrived at Napier on the Lord Ashley from Wellington. On 6 Jun 1864 as "Captain Synnot" he left Napier on the s.s. Auckland heading for Wellington and southern ports. On 24 Dec 1864, again as Captain Synnot, he departed from Auckland on the s.s. Rangatira heading for Napier. Capt. Synnot arrived in Napier 2 days later, on 26 Dec 1864.

The partnership of Chapman & Synnot of Te Aute placed notices in the Hawkes Bay Herald throughout 1863, 1864 and 1865, offering to receive 500 to 1000 wethers for fattening, and selling half-breed Leicester rams, usually 50 at a time.

There is a curious news item in the Lake Wakatip Mail of 14 Jul 1866, referring to a notice in the 'Hawkes Bay Herald', which has not been located. The item reads:
"Military rank and title is usually considered honorable, particularly when it is that of a commissioned officer, and even when the individual has left the service it is customary to address him according to the position he held in it. One gentleman. however, is of a different opinion, as may be seen in the following advertisement which we clip from the 'Hawkes Bay Herald' : '-Notice!-The person sometimes called Captain Synnot wishes to be called for the future Mr Synnot, as he has long since left the service.' Forbes' view contrasts strongly with his nephew Mark Seton Synnot, a Captain in the Armagh Militia until 1883. His entries in the annual Thom's Irish Almanac from 1885 to 1900, relating to his position as a magistrate, all refer to Mark as 'late Captain Armagh Militia'.

This raises some interesting questions, as to why Forbes wanted to avoid mention of his career with the militia in Armagh, which was only 7 years previously, and why it was of interest to the Lake Wakatip Mail in distant Otago.

The Hawkes Bay Herald of 5 Jan 1867 carried a notice of the dissolution of the partnership by notice dated 31 Dec 1866. Frederick Chapman was 'empowered to receive and discharge all debts due to or by the said late co-partnership.'

The name of 'Wm. Forbes Symot, Esq.' was on a 'List of Unclaimed Letters for the Month of September, 1868', by the GPO, Sydney, on 1 Oct 1868, and published in the NSW Gazette of 29 Oct 1868.

It appears that Forbes and his ex-partner F. M. Chapman remained on good, if not close, terms for some years. The Sydney Morning Herald of 9 Jun 1871 carried a notice for W. Forbes Synnot from a friend from Napier, who was anxious to see Forbes at the Royal Hotel, George Street, Sydney, or to send his address to F. M. C. Immediate. F. M. C. must have been Frederick Martin Chapman.

Forbes was again on an Unclaimed Letters list in 1873 - this time in the New South Wales Government Gazette of 20 Mar 1873 in a 'List of Letters Returned from the Country Unclaimed, and Now Lying at this Office Unclaimed (General Post Office, Sydney, 15 Feb 1873)'

William Forbes Synnot was named as a selector of land on 25 Jun 1874 in a list of the Department of Lands, Conditional Sales Division, Sydney of 4 February, 1880. The list was published in the New South Wales Government Gazette on 4 Feb 1880. The land was 50 acres in the District of Scone.

According to his death notice in the Sydney Morning Herald (14 Mar 1876), William had been a captain and lieutenant of a company in the Armagh Light Infantry Regiment of Militia in Ireland.

Burke's Irish Family Records (1976) says of William: ‘dsp 29 Feb 1876.’

His date of death was probably 3 March 1876, as in:
"New Zealand, Archives New Zealand, Probate Records, 1843-1998," database with images, FamilySearch; Exemplification of probate. Extracted by J. P Abbott, Proctor, Murrurundi, New South Wales, filed 9 Oct 1880:
This document is an extract of the will and probate of William Forbes Synnott [sic].
The extract of the probate notes that William died on or about 3 Mar 1876, and a note in the margin of the Exemplification says 'No. 674 Testator died 3rd March 1876'.
[note that this is consistent with Ancestry.com. England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2010, but conflicts with the death date of 29 Feb (Burke 1879, 1894, 1976) and 4 Feb 1876 in death notices in the Sydney Morning Herald (14 and 18 Mar 1876) and the Sydney Mail (18 Mar 1876)]
The official (Calendar and probate) version is taken as correct - the newspaper notices were possibly from the same (erroneous) source.

William's will was dated 4 Dec 1875, witnesses J.T. Nilshire, Clerk of Petty Sessions and J. T. Vincent, Scone Hospital. William was described as being late of Middlebrooke near Scone, NSW, and formerly of Ballymayer, County of Armagh, Ireland and then of 'Powkarra Pi Artie', Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, farmer. This NZ address was a corruption of Pokawa, near Te Aute, where he was a sheepfarmer.

In his will, William left:
£900 to his brother Parker George Synnott of Lurgana, Ballymoyer, Newton Hamilton, County Armagh, Ireland;
£25 each to his 2 executors, the Rev I. Shaw of Scone and James Little, storekeeper of Scone; and
his 'selection or farm on the Middlebrooke near Scone, New South Wales' to his man Harry Ested - except for the writing desk and papers which he wished his executors to examine and to destroy those of no value.

Joseph P. Abbott, the Proctor for the executors of Forbes' will, gave notice in the NSW Government Gazette of 25 Aug 1876 that, 14 days after publication, application would be made for probate to be granted to Rev, John Shaw of Scone, Church of England clergyman and James Little of the same place, storekeeper, who were the executors named in the will.

Probate was duly granted in Sydney on 2 Oct 1876 by the Supreme Court of NSW, Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction. The estate was valued at £1001. As Forbes left £900 to his brother Parker, they must have been very close.

A notice in the NSW Government Gazette of 24 Jul 1877 advised that claims against the estate of William Forbes Synnot of Middlebrook, near Scone, should be sent to the the executors, James Little and John Shaw, at the office of their solicitor Joseph Palmer Abbott of Mayne Street, Murrurundi by 30 Sep 1877.

The probate was re-sealed in Dublin on 4 Mar 1898.

In 1861, a Charles Nelson, a mariner and a Naturalised British Subject, was boarding at 39 Pitt Street in Liverpool.

There are records of a Charles Nelson, a seaman, in the period 1866-1877, from Liverpool crew lists on ancestry.com, with one record (service 9 Feb 1867-28 Mar 1868) being on findmypast.ie England and Wales Merchant Navy Crew Lists, but with the owner, master and registration of the ship based in Liverpool:

Charles Nelson 63203 1873 City of Brussels
C Nelson Sweden 54599 21 Aug 1877-5 Oct 1877 Alps

It seems that there were a number of Charles Nelsons from Sweden, about the same age, serving as seamen in the 1860s-1870s. The records deserve further analysis for ports of joining and leaving the ship, previous ship served on, and any overlap in periods of service. The only Charles Nelson with service consistent with the man who was a marine store dealer in London in 1871 was Official no. 46671. He served on the 'Northern Empire' in 1866 and 1867.

The witnesses to Charles and Emma's 1862 marriage at the parish church of St Leonard in Shoreditch, London, after the issue of banns, were Alfred Rice and [Esther] ******son i.e. not Nelson or Brook family members. Perhaps Emma was living away from her parents - her occupation on the marriage record was given as servant.

Charles Nelson of 11 Sabberton Street, Canning Town, Essex died in Essex on 25 Dec 1891. Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Emma on 26 Feb 1892 in London. His effects were valued at £122.

In 1891, Peter and James Watt, both described as grandsons of Ann Watt (nee Nicol), were with Ann and her children Mary and James. Her other son Peter was absent.

On census night in 1901 Peter (the grandson of Ann) was with his uncle James Watt and his grandmother Ann Watt (nee Nicol) at Alma Cottage in Lesmahagow. It follows that Peter was the son of one of James's siblings - Mary or Peter. Mary seems more likely, as she was with both James and Peter (Ann's grandsons) in 1891 and she was clearly James's mother. There is no sign of a connection between Peter (grandson of Ann) and his uncle Peter Watt, who later married and had his own family in Lesmahagow.
