Journal by kelmark

John Wotton m Susan Giles in East Stonehouse, Devon, England in 1841.

2 children born in Devon befoire immigration - Mary Giles Wotton (1843) & Susan Jane Wotton (1846).

* Son James John Wotton born in Adelaide, SA on 22 Dec 1848. He marries Harriet Hannah Stokes on 14 Apr 1873 at Residence of James Stokes, Currency Creek, South Australia. They move all around Australia, and end up settling in QLD. Their children include Esther, James John (Jnr), Augusta Ann, Ellen Hester, Alfred Harold, Robert Richard, Margaret Susan, Harriet Ethel and Edith May. James John (Snr) died 28 Feb 1941 in Roma, QLD.
