My mother is a Johnston and was born in Murwillumbah in 1959.
Her Father was Garry Desmond Johnston born in 1933 in Newcastle? And
Died in Brisbane in May 1999. He was one of 7 children.

I can trace the Fullick's back to 1760, however, can't seem to find

Johnston and Sarah Davis.
Can anyone help?
