Dear libwah, Welcome. As I have lots of Inverell families in my tree, I also no doubt have your MONCKTONs.

Here's a bit of what I've been able to find so far, verification required as much as possible...

Jasper MONKTON born 1740 South Petherton, Somerset, England married Mary EDMONDS. The couple had three children that I can find, possibly more:-

1. Elizabeth MONKTON born 1769 Stratton, South Petherton, Somerset, England married 1786 South Petherton, Somerset, England Thomas MASTERS 1767-1836 also of South Petherton.

2. William MONKTON born 1777 Stratton, South Petherton, Somerset, England

3. James MONKTON born 1781 Stratton, South Petherton, Somerset, England
married Hannah EDMONDS born 1782 South Petherton, Somerset, England. Their son William MONCKTON Source - FamilySearch.org Ancestral File No. 95SZ-JV born 1819 South Petherton, Somerset, England, christened 31 Jul 1819 South Petherton, Somerset, England died 13 Feb 1859 Yarrowick, Uralla, New South Wales, Australia, buried 15 Feb Yarrowick.

Hannah was the daughter of John HUTCHINGS or HUTCHINS born abt 1787 Crewkerne, Somerset, England and Ann STEMBRIDGE born abt 1791 Crewkerne, Somerset, England.

Hi Libwah,
I have just sighted your reference to the South family Inverell area. I also have connection to Inverell (but not this family) and have a couple of Inverell Cemetery Books with South names in them - Hope this may be of help.

Buried Church Of England Cemetery, Inverel:
Baby South died 12/11/1953 - 1.5 hrs old - Address = Gilgai
Claude South died 11/3/1924 aged 3 yrs - Address = Gilgai
Elizabeth Maud South died 15/4/1937 - aged 68 yrs
Ernest Harold South died 22/11/1933 - aged 34 yrs (Notes: died Glen Innes Hospital)
George Herbert South died 23/1/1955 - aged 84 yrs - Address = Gilgai
John Thomas South died 9/10/1913 - aged 28 yrs - Address = The Ponds, Gilgai
Margaret Cecelia South died 13/6/1920 aged 49 yrs (Notes: Died Gilgai)
Susanna South died 30/6/1920 aged 78 yrs (Notes: Died The Ponds, Gilgai - Our Dear Mother)
Walter Henry South died 21/4/1928 aged 64 yrs
William South died 3/1/1906 aged 83 yrs Address = South's Gully, The Ponds,Gilgai (Miner)
Buried Inverell New General Cemetery:
Annie Edith South died 18/6/1985 aged 81 yrs - Address = Inverell Rd, Gilgai
Douglas Lindsay (Pat) South died 3/5/1975 aged 72 yrs - Address = Finch St, Bingara.
Elizabeth Rose South died 9/3/1975 aged 65 yrs - Address = 88 Ring St, Inverell.
Leslie George South died 6/4/1981 aged 78 yrs - Address = Tingha Rd, Gilgai.
Walter Stewart South died 12/10/1979 aged 85 yrs - Address = Tingha Rd, Inverell.

I suggest you could cross match these people by searching thier death in birth death & marriages to obtain parents names.

Good luck, Meg
