Clarence Alexander Mansell, also called Alick, was born about 1916 and still living in 1939 aged about 23. He was still living in 1949 in Tasmania. Clarence's father was John Peter Mansell and his mother Maude Adeline Brown[1]. Clarence was a descendant of the Pinterrairer Clan of the 'North East' nation of Tasmania.

However, in 1928 there was a Clarence Alexander Mansell on the Electoral Rolls living on Cape Barren Island as a Labourer, which indicates that he would have been born around 10 years earlier than the date given by Tindale, probably based on his estimated age in 1939. There are 14 other Mansells on Cape Barren Island on this ER and 7 on Lady Barron. By the 1936 ER Clarence Alexander had been joined by Clydia Robina Mansell (nee Beeton), and were together there in 1943. They moved to the mainland to Launceston after WWII for Clarence to find work. By 1954 they were in the political District of George Town at Lefroy, with Clarence as a Labourer, and the only Mansells on that ER. In 1968, with 'no occupation' given, they were at 19 Bourke Street, Launceston, and they may have been living in George Town between 1954 and 1968 as that is where their son Michael Alexander Mansell went to school.

Clarence had two wives, the 1st Daisy Cornelia Thomas and the 2nd Clydia Robena Beeton (born 2 May 1910, daughter of Herbert James Beeton and Judith Thomas), also known as Clyda (see ref.1). Daisy was born on 23 March 1908 and died 1932-1933 at the early age of 22 or 23 [perhaps a transcription error]. Daisy does not appear on the 1928 ER with Clarence.
