Dear 'Loupie', I am one of George (senior - born Stringston, Somerset) and George's (junior - born Tasmania) great grandchildren,. My great-grandmother is Harriet Caroline James (nee Govett, daughter of George Govett and Harriet (nee Pippin). Great Grandma James married Evan James and their daughter, Olive is my grandmother who died in 1922. Olive's daughter is my mother Joyce who has just turned 97 years old! My branch is often referred to as the Kyneton Victoria branch, as that is where George Senior and Mary (nee Bryant) settled on the Piper's Run property (renamed Pastoria). I am researching the Govett and James family history too. With warm regards, Deborah

Hi Deborah and Loupie
I came across your postings yesterday, when doing some research on the Govett family in Queensland. My connection to the family is through Minnie Mary Mahoney, my great grandmother and wife of William Boyes Govett.
I am not connected by "blood", as I am descended from Catherine Dearing, second daughter of Minnie Mary Mahoney and her first husband, James Dearing, in Blackall. I grew up knowing Uncle George Govett, who I now realise is a half-brother to my grandmother Catherine Ware (nee Dearing). Sorry if that is all getting confusing - it is a complex, but interesting story! Kind regards, Kay
