CAMPBELL family from Sorrento/ Portsea / Melbourne Victoria Australia. I'm trying to trace the Campbell line in my family.
This is my first question on here so please bear with me...
I'm trying to trace my family tree and am starting with my Paternal grandfathers line 'Campbell'.
My grandfather was John Herbert Bruce Campbell (Jack)(1922-2003)
I know that he was born in the 'Back beach Palace'(AKA The Oceanic) in Sorrento Victoria. I believe his parents (Ernest Bruce Campbell (1891-1983) & Violet Alvina Wooster (1891-1978)) ran the hotel. I am also told that my great grandfather owned a dairy farm where the Tullamarine airport is now located.
I can trace the Campbells back through the following:
Ernest Bruce Campbell's parents were:
Herbert Augustus Campbell (1863-1916) & Wilhelmina Elise Wagner (1867-?)
Herbert's parents were:
Alfred Douglas Campbell (1827-1893) & Emily Goodwin (1832-1911)
Alfred's parents were:
Anderson ? Campbell (1795-1854) & Mary Ann Field (1797-?)
Anderson's parents were:
Anderson ? Campbell (1763-?) & Catherine Purney (1765-?)
I cant find anything past this lineage.
I'm after any info that might fill in the '?' in my dates and names, as well as any information that i can trace back past the 1763 Anderson Campbell. Ultimately I'd love to find out which Campbell Clan we descend from.
