For my children I decided to research my and consequently their family tree firstly through my father. Due to a number of circumstances/coincidences I changed my priority to that of the history of my husband's (and their father) family.
His family goes back to Joseph TUZO, transported to Australia on the first fleet. Joseph had 2 daughters with Rebecca GOLSBY, one of which was Johanna GOLSBY TUZO who in turn had a daughter, Jessica Australia BAYLISS who in 1877 married a William COWELL(born in Bathurst in 1855).
My husband's family have always believed the Cowell's came from the Isle of Man so I am looking to find out more about this link
