Misc. Notes
Joseph Harbottle was born on July 22, 1842 as the fourth son of Thomas and Mary. After school he joined his father in the family paint and paper hanging business in Elizabeth Street. According to the Hobart ‘Mercury’ he was “proverbially industrious. Up early in the morning, he was into town and saw his place of business open and his staff and workmen allotted their daily tasks before many leisurely people were out of their beds. Then after getting home to breakfast and taking a brief rest, he was back again to face the duties of the day. Up until the morning before his death (at 64), he thus fulfilled his daily round. Unobtrusive in his habits of life, he took no part in public affairs (in contrast to [his brother] Charles) beyond that watchful interest which every good citizen deems a bounden duty. None the less esteemed as a member of a well reputed Hobart family.”

Joseph married Mary, the first child of Peter Oldham on November 7, 1865 at St David’s Hobart.... Eventually they lived at “Collinna”, Mont Pellier Road, Battery Point and produced seven children.

Joseph died at “Collinna” on July 28, 1906 aged 64.
