1. Wow! small world. Who was Joan Buchannan, the teacher at Princess Street School, Sandy Bay? AGA’s son, Michael Robert Buring, married Meredith Buchanan of Hobart in 1939, who had an older sister called Jean. They were a family of five girls, and Meredith was the youngest. The dashing Michael was intended for one of the older girls. The eldest, Margaret, married Alan Knight and lived in Sandy bay until she died at 92 or 93 a few years ago.

    Hi Chris, I gather Wil told you about my blog post. The Joan Buchanan in the Cyclopedia of Tasmania wasn’t a teacher at Princes St school but taught dance and gymnastics I think at her own studio.

    I’ve always wondered, which of his three names was your grandfather known by?

    Kind regards, Kylie 🙂
