The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 10 June 1933 p.9
ST. JOHN'S, CAMDEN.
Anniversary of Consecration.
(BY ERIC RAMSDEN.)
...
Mrs. Samuel Wheeler, the oldest parishioner, preserves an interesting link with the past. Her husband came to Australia with his father, the late Jonathan Wheeler from Gloucester, in 1838. The Wheelers were sawyers. They were brought out by the Macarthur family for the purpose of preparing the timber for St. John's Church. The finest of the ironbark trees in the district were placed at their disposal. How splendidly the Wheelers, father and son used their material, can be seen in the roof of the church to-day nearly a century later. The woodwork throughout St. John's has been handled with exquisite craftsmanship. Samuel Wheeler died in 1909, aged 94. His widow, though now in her 90th year, still walks up the hill to service.

I'm wondering if they came assisted on a Bounty vessel in 1838.

I need FS. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave just to let you know that Bizley is a small village adjoined to Stroud.

It is a stunning little place....and the home of the author Gilly Cooper who writes romantic novels.

Thanks, Lee.

I didn't see much of Gloucestershire during my two week visit to England 5 years ago. Don't know when I'll get back. I want to visit Hanham, Bitton, Oldland area.
