FAMILY...

The BRETTELLs

In 1998, a letter from a second cousin who I had never met, living in Spain, prompted my to start researching my Family History. From this passion has grown this obsession with, not only the origins of my family, but the origins of my surname.

Tracing my line backwards, my Grandparents arrived in Australia in 1921 on board the THEMISTOCLES from London.

The CUTTLERs

On My Mum's side are the CUTTLERs.  My CUTTLER line comes from around manchester, Lancs, England and can be traced back to the birth of James CUTLER at Goosnargh, Lancs in about 1734. My particular line seems to come from alternating generations of James' and Georges down to my grandfather, Jim, who had two daughters, Margaret Mary (Rita) and Josephone Ottilie (Dot).

This family of CUTTLERs, specifically George and Sarah Ann and family, migrated to Hervey Bay (Maryborough), Queensland, Australia on the DAVID McIVOR in 1864
