Biffin, Bradman and Goodfellow Families

Journal by Megsy1955

Am researching the families of Grace Goodfellow who married Thomas Biffin in 1856 in Fovant Wiltshire UK. Thomas Biffin was a widower, his wife Louisa (nee Best) died in 1835, leaving a family of 5 children -
The family came to Australia aboard the Woodbridge on 15/9/1838, along with Grace's brother Moses Goodfellow and his family.

The Biffin family lived in the Berrima and Mittagong area.

I have some information but a lot of blank areas, so any help would be appreciated. Megsy

My Moses was born in New York but died in Ontario, CA. So Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I can't help but wonder if this Moses and my Moses were relatives? It was quite common to repeat family names over and over throughout the generations....Moses, Samuel, John, William & Thomas to name a few.
