Grandfather William is one of the 4 original Tolliday children and the youngest member of the family to travel over on the British Empire with their widowed mother Jane Curtis Tolliday. They sailed from Southhampton in 1854 arriving at Port Henry in Victoria 3 months later in January 1855.
William's siblings were John Curtis, Elizabeth and Christiana.
John married Sarah Elizabeth Miles, Elizabeth married Charles Jonas Clark and Christiana married Agnon Charles Louis Numa.
From these two men there is a large family of Tollidays in Australia. Not to mention the daughters families as well although their names are not always available or carried through because their children do not carry the Tolliday surname, They are still from the Tolliday original English family of yesteryear.
The Family Tree is huge and still growing.
