My Father's family came to Australia from England around 1840 and settled west of Goulburn, New South Wales in the Gunning, Jerrawa, Dalton area. Many of their descendants still live on the same properties. My father was raised at Rye Park, some 20 kilometres east of Boorowa, N.S.W.

My mother's parents also migrated from England, they arrived in 1911 from Nottingham. Their surname was Bonsor.

My paternal Great, Great, Grandfather and Grandmother both came to Australia from Kilkenny, Ireland. They were married after they arrived in Sydney at St. Mary's Cathedral in 1855. We have not yet been able to establish where my father's other ancestors came from prior to landing in Australia.

My mother's grand parents were mostly born in London, England.
