Wishing to share Rodwell Percydale info.
I was born at Avoca 1947.
Son of Mabel Lilian Pryse (nee Rodwell)
Grandson of Henry Owen Rodwell
Great Grandson of David Cornelius Rodwell
Great Great Grandson of David Rodwell
The following entry from Warren Rodwell also applies to myself:
"I am a direct descendant of DAVID RODWELL (B:1819) son of THOMAS RODWELL (B:1778); a shoemaker; St Edmunds Parish,Salisbury Wiltshire England.THOMAS RODWELL 's parents were SAMUEL RODWELL and MARY (maiden name not known). THOMAS RODWELL married MARTHA ELTON. Their son DAVID RODWELL (B:1819) was transported to Hobart Tasmania Australia VDL aboard the ship Lord William Bentinck (2) in 1838. He later married ROSINA HAMMOND (B:Chelmsford Essex England). She was transported VDL 1844. They seem to have followed the goldrush when they moved to Victoria on mainland Australia in 1852."
As a legacy of my Mother who passed away Christmas Day 2007, I have a collection of photographs and documentation that I feel obliged to share with the Rodwell clan.
