WOTTON of Currency Creek, 18th century.

I was very surprised to find this site during an internet search. I believe I am descendant of a John James WOTTON, born about 1810, Modbury, Devon, England, and Susan GILES, details unknown, likely born Devon.
They emigrated sometime to South Australia between 1846 and 1848.
John James Wotton died at Tarranginnie, near Nhill, SA in June, 1882.
I am descendant of their third child and first born in Australia, James John WOTTON, born 21 Dec 1848 in Currency Creek, South Australia.
Their children, in birth order were
Mary Giles WOTTON, b 11Jul 1843 in Devon
Susan Jane WOTTON, b 1 Mar 1846 in Devon
James John WOTTON, b 21Dec1848 in SA
Ann Jane WOTTON, b 25Mar 1852
Susan Margaret WOTTON, b 15 Jun 1855
Margaret Sarah WOTTON, 16 Nov 1857
John William WOTTON, 4 Feb, 1861
Robert Henry WOTTON, 24 Apr 1864

James John WOTTON, of whom I am descendant, married Harriet STOKES about 1868/1874.
It appears the WOTTON family relocated to Nhill district, Western Victoria about 1874 or 1875.
Their cildren in order were
James John WOTTON b 23 Apr 1874. He subsequently married Annie Jane COCHRANE in 1898 at Walgett, NSW, of whom I am descendant.
Augusta Ann WOTTON, b 24 Jul 1875
Ellen Hester WOTTON,b 23 Dec 1876
Alfred Harold WOTTON, b 3 Aug 1878
Robert Richard WOTTON, b 27 Oct 1880
Margaret Susan WOTTON, b 8 Jun 1882
Harriet Ethel WOTTON, b 12 May 1889
Edith M WOTTON, b 3 Dec 1892.

I will post descendants of James John WOTTON and Annie Jane WOTTON nee COCHRANE, one of whom is my mother, Ada Emily MCKENZIE nee WOTTON, their youngest born, b 25 May 1915, in another posting.
