Surnames: TYERS EDWARDS BASTARD SHANNON O'SHANNON
I am researching my gt gt grandfather William Edward TYERS. Family legend has it he came from Glynton England running away from home to South Australia. Glynton does not appear in the atlases I have checked. He was born about 1842 and married Elizabeth Lucy BASTARD (widowed by Frederick Eugene O'SHANNON also known as just SHANNON) on 6 July 1879 in Adelaide. They had one daughter, Eva Constance on 14 Feb 1882, my gt grandmother. She died 21 Jan 1977 at Grange, SA.

William Edward TYERS changed his name to just William EDWARDS to evade home (whatever happened there). William died 1 July 1917 and is buried in the North Road Cemetery and Elizabeth died 5 Feb 1919 and is buried in the West Terrace Cemetery.

I am trying to trace his arrival in Australia and find out his parents.

I've noticed a mention of a William TYERS who came to South Australia on this board but that one was born too early in 1828 and married a Sarah so he is not a match.
