TOWN – This Town family originated in England; in Kent. The line begins to my knowledge with John Town who was born in 1737. His father according to christening records was Daniel Town, but his mother was not listed.
John married a girl named Elizabeth, and they had 7 children: John, Elizabeth, Thomas, Robert, Anne & John. I do not know anything about 6 of the children except their birth year. Thomas is the line I was following, and he married Elizabeth Jeffrey and had 12 children.
I would like to trace Thomas’ brothers and sisters and find out who they married where they moved to. If I can I would like to find out who John’s parents were as well.
WEBB – The Webb family I have been researching is rather confusing. It begins with William James Webb who has listed his year of birth as 1851 and place of birth as London, England on the 1891 census, but then in 1901, he has listed his year of birth as 1853 and the place as Turnbridge, Kent. However, I do know that he married Mary Jane Coggins (Coggings) and they had three children: Michael, Florence & Eliza.
I would like to find out what happened to these three children as well as unravel the mystery behind William and his birth.
WHITTEN - Whitten is sometimes been spelt incorrectly as Whitton/Witten/Witon. The line I have been researching starts with George Whitten who was born in 1833 in Ireland. George married Francis Sarah Ewing (Ewins/Ewings), and they had seven children. George and Francis emigrated to Australia with the first 5 of their children between 1850 & 1855. The family settled in the Ballarat area.
The children were: Jane Whitten (1841 – 1921), Mary Witten (1843 – 1905), Alicia Whitten (1846 – 1917), Elizabeth Ann Whitten (1848 – 1931), William John Whitten (1850 – 1918), Sarah Whitton (1855 – 1856), & George Whitten (1858 – 1901).
