Hi Debbie - I checked this but Rosetta Lyons maiden name was Simeon. However, there are often mistakes made on BDM certificates.

enjoyed this program as the others were getting a bit samey and the combination of convict and convict ships captain made it different.

I was fascinated to see that the Lyons came back to London! so had a quick search and in 1861 Joseph and Rozetta are at 16, Middlesex Street, Whitechapel, London with Simeon and his siblings.

I wonder if this is Joseph and Rose(tta)'s marriage in 1835

This episode of "WDYTYA" was disappointing in as the crescendo to this episode would have been the re-uniting of Jason Donovan with his mother and sharing the history of her family together.

Surely, a more concentrated effort would have succeeded?

It would have made tremendous television and of course recovered part of the jigsaw puzzle in Jason's life. His mother was a well known television beauty in Melbourne, Australia and Jason looks very much like his mother.

This episode was "nice", but needed more oomph.
