Shufflebottom and Stevens
My great grandmother was Harriett Stevens, her father was John James Shufflebottom, he was a convicted street robber, convicted at the Stafford Assizes and transported to Australia for seven years. His nickname was Curly. Harriett Steven married my great grandfather Albert Phillips, and they were married at the Wesley Church Armidale on 5th December 1870. they had 14 children, of whom my grandfather Francis Charles Phillips was one, and Francis and is wife Emily Basing had 11 children, or whom my mother was one.
I have a cousin who did many years research into John James Shufflebottom, and published a book, mainly for the family, and it contains many photos of Shufflebottom family members and much information about who married who and when, and we have a copy of the book
If anybody is interested in this Shufflebottom/Steven family, send a pm and we can put you in touch, we think, with my cousin, to see if he can provide you with a copy of the book, if not, we can always photocopy our copy and send that to you, but of course some of the photos will be a bit darker than in the book because our copier does not have any way to alter the grey scale for photos.

My husband and I are interested in tracing the roots of our family and have been doing so since 1956, so we now have about 9Gb of info on our computer about the families of both of us, and we are interested in making contact with any member of any of the families we are researching to share information, looking also for photos and certificates for any family member to add to our huge files on those families. After all these years they are still a "work in progress" and we would like more please
