William WATTS born Leeds Yorkshire, arrived in Sydney 1824 on "Guildford"

Journal by BronQuinn

William WATTS b. 1805 in Leeds Yorkshire and Fathers name was James.

Upon arrival in Australia Willaim Watts was assigned to R & H Scott for seven years at "Glendon" Warkworth in the Singleton district of NSW . He married Ann O'Brien in 1833 at "Glendon". She came to Australia on the "Hoogley" 1831. They had nine children.
Their eldest son, George b.7.6.1883 married Jane Elizabeth Duff at Wambo near Jerrys Plains NSW. Together they rared 12 children, the youngest of which is my Grandmother. It is her siblings that I know little of. My understanding is that that some of them remained in the region of Warkworth and Broke NSW.There names were:-
William Australia b.1857. George Albert b.1859, Emily Jane b.1861, Herbert James 1862, Florence Albenia 1864, Richard 1865, Reginal 1867, Arnold 1869, Melanie 1872, Ethel 1874, Ernest 1877, Myra 1872.
