Looking for Champions of Cornwall circa 1870s
I'm seeking any info on the three Champion brothers John, Isaac & William who were tin miners and lived in the St Ives area of Cornwall. In 1875? they all came to Melbourne aboard the 'SS Great Britain'.
I've lost track of John & Isaac. Anybody have connections ?
William married Adelaide Nankervis in 1875? & they had two children,
(Ethel)& Albert who subsequently married Helena Watson & they became my g/grandparents.
Albert & Helena passed away in 1945/1944 respectively, after producing three sons - Norman,
Harold & Reginald. Norman & Reg had no children and I am the only son of Harold.
I have two siblings, Barbara & Diane.
I have sired Paul (1969), Lisa (1972) & Greg (1975)
Paul sired William (2000) & Emily (2002),
Lisa married Jarrod Kennedy in 2000 & bore Jack (2001), Ben (2003), Charlie (2005) & Alex (2012)
Greg sired Dusty (2006) & Maple (2008)
I do have some detail of our convict origins out of the Gangell's of Tasmania - all on Helena Watson's side of the tree & going back to 1770's The picture is of the Memorial - on Constitution Dock - to
the first settlers of Tassy who arrived aboard the sailing ship 'Ocean' in 1804
