John NESBITT was one of the children in the family of George NESBITT who appears to have been a convict on Sarah Island, Tasmania and lived at New Norfolk, Tasmania up to his death there in 1860. The family of George NESBITT (c1801-1860) and Mary Ann BOND (___-___) appears to have been:

  1. Janet NESBITT b. 1835, New Norfolk, Tasmania, m. James Hammond WELLS
  2. Emma NESBITT b. 1837, New Norfolk, Tasmania, m. Henry JONES
  3. Benjamin NESBITT b. 1839, New Norfolk, Tasmania, m. Mary Jane LAMLEY / LUMLEY
  4. John Richard 'Dick' NESBITT b. 1848, New Norfolk, Tasmania, m. Mary Janet 'Jessie' WALKER, and they appear to have had the following family:
    1. John George NESBITT b. 1878, Merino, Vic
    2. William Henry NESBITT b. 1881, Merino, Vic, m. Ruth Agnes HICKMER
    3. Benjamin "Charles" NESBITT b. 1883, Merino, Vic, d. 1916, France

    The four NESBITT boys in this group were all pupils at Digby School which indicates they were probably in the same family group which has been very difficult to locate.
