Sir Jenkyn Jones The Dernee Family History

... or keeping up with the Joneses ...

This web of pages
spans the entire second millennium AD.

Early in the third millennium,
the current generations descended from these people include:

Dot & John's Golden Anniversary family get-together

Dernees (Sydney and Cowra):

Catherine, Elizabeth, Phillip, Christine ("generation zero") and cousins Michael and Amie, Scott and Loren

and their parents (generation 1) Anne and Geoff , his brother Allan (wife Vicky), his sister Suzee Green (husband Phil)

and grandparents Dorothy (nee Dawborn) and John Dernee. Another sister, Lynette, died tragically young in a car accident.

Earlier generations are documented in these web pages, commencing with Vyvyan (arrived Australia 1912), Doris and Basil. It is Basil (Arthur Frederick) d'Ernee and his grandfather Charles whom we have to thank for much of this information.

Mates (Seattle and former diplomat):

Jeremy and Nathan (between generation zero and one),

their parents Elizabeth and Michael Mates, his brother Tony

Michael's mother, the late Amy Mates-Nielsen, nee Hill,

and her parents (deceased 1964) Jack Hill and Doris d'Ernee,

and her parents Annie Smith and Sydney d'Ernee

Trethewey (Melbourne):

Jillian, Peter and partner Dianne, and Alison & Christopher Knight who have three children Jessica, Angela and Mathew.

their parents: Joan Hyett (born 1923) married Donald Hugh Trethewey (born 1925) and her father

Claude Hyett (1886-1964) whose mother is

Elizabeth Barnes Newcombe (1860-1945) who married Barkly Hyett. Elizabeth is a daughter of

Ebenezer Prout Newcombe (1828-1901) who came to Australia in 1849 and hence the connection with Eliza Newcombe..

The highlights of these pages include a wonderful account of 18th century wild living by a centenarian.
Other information you may have would be welcomed
by Geoff, who will get around to including it, assuming your permission to do so.
