Hi Alison,

I also live in Australia. I have done a lot of Botten research as my husband has got two GGG Aunts that married into the Botten family - Frances and Elizabeth Springate (also known as Springett). You have a mistake. Frances Springate b.1809 married John Botten b.1807. They had a daughter Emily Ann born 1837 who married John Seale. This is part of my husband's tree.

I have done another tree to help a friend and on this tree John Botten b.1810 married Sophia Russell b.1812 and they had a daughter Emily born 1839 who married Richard Homewood.

Should you wish to contact me - my email address is

Dear Wendy, Hi there. Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles. I would love it if you were able to supply correct information around Richard & Emily HOMEWOOD. Looking forward to reading any journals that you submit.

I'm getting my other HOMEWOOD researchers in England and New Zealand to have a look at this site.

Alison QLD.
