Hi

My name is Stu and I live just outside Chesterfield in Derbyshire, work as a Hydraulics Machinist.........married with 2 Girls, Dog, Fish, 2 Hamsters and a Bearded Dragon :)

Hobbies include Astronomy, Footy, Browsing and Family History of course.

I am really hoping that I can get some background on our family (this time) after several attempts that found not much at all.

Only just joined the site here but, it looks very promising.

Cheers
Stu

Hi Julie

Thank you for your reply. I am sorry it has taken so long for me to catch up.

My Catherine Robertson came out to Australia C 1853 from the Nth Uist Island. She was by this time Mrs. Catherine McBain,The talk in the family was that she came Inverness, but where I do not know.

Julie thank you again for your reply I had changed my email and lost my record of this site, sorry.

Kind regards

Rainie





Hi Rainie,

Welcome to the forum.

What part of Scotland do your Robertsons come from? I have Robertsons from Cromerty (though info is a bit hazy).

Hi
My name is Ashley, I am retired and I live in Brisbane Australia. My hobbies are Lawn bowls, bird watching and of course, geneaology. I have been doing mine and my wife's ancestry on and off for a number of years with a fair amount of success but have hit a few brick walls mainly on the Phillips ancestors (Pembroke Dock Wales) and Wills descendants (family living in March Cambridgeshire in 1901 census).

Hi Ashley, I see your back here. Do you need help of any kind, let us know and we'll se what we can do.

Hi Y'all,

Have just moved back down under from Texas and it is not as I have not enough to do, made some enquiries about genealogy as my uncle is still going strong at 96. It turns out that after some research by my cousin our familey are descended not by free settlers as we were all brought up to believe but from convicts transported to Tasmania (where I was born) in 1820. It further turns out my great great great grandfather Joshua Clayton at the age of 58 was hanged in York on the 15 April 1820 for the crime of uttering 3 days before his son John Joseph Clayton aged 21 was transported to Hobart in Van Dieman's Land on the ship Maria. Here he married another convict Mary Grey and they had 6 children. They both were later pardoned when it was found that they had assisted the poor. So am starting on the arduous task of trying to discover a little more about Joshua Clayton in York and whether he had other family members, trial transcripts etc. My 96 year old uncle is very excited to hear all of this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Stephen Clayton

Hi Stephen
Your ancestor Joseph is indexed on this site, under York Assizes

Hey, I'm Ryan, 18 and am new here :) I'm researching my family tree originally to find a new surname in replacement of my current boring one. However, it's become more than just a name search and has me engrossed.

So far I'm back as far as 1740's - not bad going for someone who has no experience whatsoever of genealogy, even if I say so myself :).

However, I've come to a dead end, hence my being here.

Hope I can help others on here as much as I'm hoping they can help me:)
