The history of the Wood family of Jamberoo Australia.

The story starts with the journey of a Yorkshire farmer (George Wood) to Australia with his wife, Hannah and their 5 year old daughter Sarah Ann.

The business success of George and his son George jnr in Jamberoo.

George Henry Wood's fall from grace driving his wife and children out of Jamberoo to Sydney.

John Oscar Wood joining a ship at 14 and sailing around the world.

John Edward Wood gave long service to the NSW government.

Robert John Wood is a Vietnam Veteran.

The story also covers the Tate family who had a close association with the Wood family in Jamberoo and the Donnelly family.

This is not a story of Lords of the Manor, but a story of ordinary Australians who in their time lived ordinary lives, but at times were touched by the extraordinary.
