I love the word "colourful" it says just so much, I think if you were not "colourful" you didn't survive, the conditions were very terrible most people were dirty, and food and shelter was in short supply, you had to…"
Hi everyone,I am interested in the families who lived in either of these two places during the 1800's. If anyone knows they have a connection with these locations, I would like to hear from you. I believe there might have only been a handful of people living in Blackhill but the town of Ballyquin Beg was somewhat larger.Kreewater See More
Ann Davis had several common-law husbands and fathered children by a few different men but Worsley is not a name I have as being connected with her. Ann was pretty resourceful and appears to have done whatever was needed to survive in the…"
I am interested in anyone with Hughes, Goldie or Cain family connections in Glasgow or close surrounds from say around 1770 to 1840? I am researching the family of a very famous movie star to whom I am related and though there were some family members whose migratory history to other parts I have been able to track, I would like to know what happened to those left behind.KreewaterSee More
"indeed it was the toughest assignment and the Marines knew it would be but when they asked for volunteers they got many more than they expected to apply, and so the Officers in charge chose men from their own regiments to form this new regiment,…"
"That's interesting. The First Fleet voyagers often get such a bad wrap from so many quarters. I often wish people would stop and think what it would have been like from those "first" arrivals' point of view. …"
"Hi I have found that it is a lot harder to find out anything on Marines who arrived with the 1st fleet than it is to find information about the convicts.
I did find out many years ago that a lot of people felt the Marines were of the worst class and…"

I am needing help with finding out what happened to the members of my family in the late 17th or early 18th Century in Glasgow (or surrounds).Bernard HUGHES (born about 1775 in Armagh, Ireland) was a weaver who went to Glasgow to find work. That seemed to have fallen apart due to the times and he then turned his hand to being a tallow chandle and candle maker. Nothing official but, (and he may have taken advantage of the law with allowed marriage by mutual agreement) because he "married" a…See More
Guiseppe GAZZO is said to have married Isabella MAZZARELLA in Sicily in 1901. Isabella is said to have been born in 1880 (perhaps in AGIRA). The couple had about 11 children and the marriage records of one of them (Maria) claims her place of birth to be AGIRA, Sicily. It is thought that this was the town in which the family lived and raised their family.The couple eventually migrated to Australia. On Isabella's death records her parents are named as Carmello MAZZARELLA and Carmela RASELIA.…See More
My ancestor Thomas WILLIAMS arrived on the First Fleet as a Marine on the "Friendship".He took a convict Ann Davis as a partner and fathered two children with her. He left her soon after and is thought to have died in a shipwreck off the Australian coast in 1829.There was more than one Thomas Williams in the colony at the time and much discussion as to who was the father of Anne's children has arisen over the years. The First Fleet Fellowship recognises, however, that this Thomas Williams is…See More
My ancestor (2x great grandfather) was John Campbell born in Aberdeen, Scotland in approoximately 1821. John was in quite a bit of trouble off and on and by the time he was about 15 years of age he was known in the Court system as John Campbell, John Pollock, John Pallat, and John Pollot (and probably others I do not know about!). He appears to have been in the company of John Bunting on all occasions when he was caught.John was finally transported to NSW (Australia) as a result of his final…See More
