I'm a descendant via Eleanor & one of those who settled on the North Coast of NSW. I think there were more children then you have listed. Eleanor was called Ellen I think - Ellen Theresa - she was my G-Grandmother & referred to as "Grandma Simpson" by my father's generation. The Simpson refers to her second marriage.
