Holdaway of Titchfield, Hants, UK
James Walter Holdaway & William Holdaway, sons of Stephen & Sarah Holdaway, then living in Southampton left for Australia in 1869. Work was scarce for the waterboys so they decided to try for a better life at Moreton Bay , Queensland. The land allocated to them was not too good for vegetable growing (it later became the famous Gabba Cricket Ground) so they headed south to the Clarence River. Here they cut timber. Later they came to Sydney.Stephen snr ws a sawyer, which craft was taken up by his son in NSW. I am looking for past family history, some of which I have or contact fromfamily who stayed in Hampshire.
