FOUNDER OF THE ELDER AUSTRALIAN LINE. William was born in Apsley Guise, Bedfordshire in 1815 and went to Australia with his family in 1849. We have not yet worked out his ancestry.

The lines we have shown here are some of the largest lines originated before 1800 which we have not been able to link to any other yet. Only Y-dna testing will help us show if they are truly separate families or members of the main line.  There are many other lines and small groups in England which are still a puzzle to us. Time does not permit listing them all here at the moment.
