Completed research on family of John James HOUGH of Gloucestershire, England (~1755-1821).

I have completed 3 books on 6 generations of the HOUGH family of Gloucestershire, England.
I have worked backwards from my Grandmother, Eva HOUGH (b.1911) of Narrandera, N.S.W., Australia - and her closest relatives - through to the first HOUGH immigrants into Victoria in 1854/1862 - Henry Arthur HOUGH and Maria HOUGH (nee JONES).(BOOK 1)

BOOK 2 traces the family of Charles HOUGH (m. Ann NEWMAN) of Gloucestershire, and later of Monmouth, and their offspring.

BOOK 3 is devoted to John James HOUGH of Bookseller & Stationer Gloucester City, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND born circa 1755, and all of his children and grandchildren.

Also included in the books are snippets about the people of the lateral branches.
Families mentioned in BOOK 1 are - HOUGH, MOON, KEMP, JONES, SHARPLEY,
BOOK 2 mentions families of - NEWMAN, HOLBROW, HARRIS, BOUGHTON
BOOK 3 gives mention of - PACE, NELMES, TRACEY, HARRIS, HOLBROW, COWIE, WAKE and BRAHAN families.

In England the families lived primarily around Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, as well as the British colonies.
In Australia the families lived primarily around Victoria, and the Riverina area of N.S.W.
