Reseaching these family members.
- LIST OF FAMILIES THAT I AM RESEARCHING AT PRESENT � I
am looking for ancestors and descendants. I have
nearly 6,300 on my list that are recorded on the
Broderbund �World Family Tree� but some of them are
not related to me. I have also included any details
given me by any in-laws, who are in any connected. I
am only conducting detailed searches on those who are
my relations or those of my children�s father.
AHRENFELD � Edward Jacob, b. Liverpool 1834 England,
m. in London c.1855. Christiana McKINNON b. 1834 Fort
Augustus, Scotland. I have been unable to verify
their birth dates or the marriage. ANY HELP WITH
THEIR ANCESTORS WOULD BE MOST WELCOME. He arrived in
Melbourne, Victoria on 22 May, 1857 with Christina and
two children. The shipping log recorded that he came
from Lancashire and that he was a carter. His
occupation may have been listed incorrectly because he
claimed that he had worked as a Law Clerk in London,
on the birth certificate of his daughter
Janet/Jeanette in 1862. They had a large family, who
except for those who came to Australia with them, were
born in Victoria. On the British 1881 Census there
were AHRENFELDS living in London, who were born in
Lancashire, Surrey & London. I have details on most
of Edward and Christina�s descendants. On his death
certificate, his father was shown as John but no
details of his mother.
AHRENFELD � Bonita b. c. 1868 in Victoria, d. 3
September, 1936 at Rydalmere, NSW age 70 � D/C
stated that her parents were William ROBERTSON and
Bessie HINES and her husbands name was John. There
were two children - John b.c. 1908 and Reginald
b.c.1915. She had married at age 18 (c. 1886) to Jack
BRANSCOMB (no issue) and age 25 (c. 1893 to John
AHRENFELD possibly in Victoria. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE
TO VERIFY ANY OF THIS INFORMATION. CAN ANYONE HELP
ARMSTRONG � Agnes, wife of James SYKES. Southern
SCOTLAND. Their daughter Margaret born c. 1830, m.
David JOHNSTON, 1850. (See SYKES)
BERGEN � Catherine, wife of Cornelius LAWLER.

and married Andrew Curry 3rd.
BODYCOMB, Hilda E. m. John Edward Fufton AHRENFELD,
1906, NSW, AUSTRALIA.
BRAIN � ENGLAND and TASMANIA. I have most details of
those who were b. in TASMANIA.
BUCHANAN � Christian name not known (SCOTLAND) -- see
CALLAGHAN � James Arthur m Euphemia MCINTOSH? Date of
marriage (she was b. 1872.) in AUSTRALIA � have been
unable to find any further information. I believe
there were four children, Sidney James, Molly, Jessie
CLARKE, Howard Ludlow b. 1915 in Sydney. He married a
Vera Mabel ANDERSON in Sydney in 1941. CAN ANYONE
ADVISE ME IT THERE WERE ANY CHILDREN FROM THIS
MARRIAGE? His parents were Edmund Ludlow CLARKE b.
1889 and Alice Mabel HOLLIER. Edward L�s parents
were Justus Julius CLARKE and Emily BLAKERS. Justus
parents were Edmund Ludlow CLARKE b. 1805 and Annie
CURRIE. Any information would complete my research
into this family.
CLARKE � William (second name
Damian/Damien/Daymon/Daymen_ b. 1858 in Victoria. HE
IS NOT RELATED TO THE CLARKE ABOVE. His parents were
William b. 1827 England and Jane ROADKNIGHT b. 1825 in
Tasmania. His paternal grandparents William CLARKE b.
1801 Cumberland, England and Mary HEAP b. 1806 in
Liverpool. William D�s paternal g/grandparents William
CLARKE and Sarah WOODBURN (probably born and married
in England). William D. m. Jeanette/Janette/Janet
AHRENFELD in Melbourne 1855. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME ANY
INFORMATION RE DATE AND PLACE OF William Damian�s
death?. It is believed that he died before 1912,
when his son Leo Hopetoun CLARKE was married. It is
reported that he was a mining engineer.
CURRY/CURRIE � Andrew 1st and wife Lydia had 3 sons
(IRELAND � Co. TYRONE) and the third son, also Andrew
2nd b. 1789 married an Ann BARR (aka Nancy) in
IRELAND. They had 3 girls and 3 boys and they all
came to Australia some time after Ann died. Lydia b.
1822 Ireland arrived in Sydney in 1842 with sister
Annie (who married Edmund Ludlow CLARKE), and her
brothers James and Robert. There has been no trace
of her since then. DID SHE MARRY, DIE OR RETURN TO
IRELAND � CAN ANYONE HELP? Andrew 2nd arrived here in
1849 with the other two children Andrew 3rd and Mary.
He married for the 2nd time to Catherine Jane GAMBLE
(nee GRAHAM) after she arrived in Australia in 1852.
The family used two spellings of their surname.
FUFTON � a third Christian name of John Edward
(Fufton) AHRENFELD. b. 1865. This may be a family
name but I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE ORIGIN OF IT.
FULLER � Elizabeth b. 1775, William m. Benjamin GOODE
1779 Cripplegate, England. Her parents were William
FULLER and Sarah POTTS. See GOODE for more details.

Catherine married him.
GRANT � Niel b, 1814, ISLE OF SKYE, SCOTLAND d.
AUSTRALIA 1854 m. Effie (Euphemia) SHAW in Strath,
Skye 1835. (Her parents were John SHAW, who was
deceased before 1839 when his widow Mary nee MCARTHUR
1789-1879, came to Australia with her daughter Effie
and family). They arrived in Australia in 1840. They
had a large family and I have a lot of information on
them. His mother was believed to be a BUCHANAN.
GRANT, John, son of above b. 1839 in Scotland
(probably ISLE OF SKYE) married Margaret WALLACE in
WESTWOOD, near CAMDEN, AUSTRALIA in 1869. They had 9
children and at the time of his death were living in
Hampton Court Road, KOGARAH, Sydney, and NSW. I have
birth dates of the children, but WOULD REALLY
APPRECIATE MORE DETAILS ON THIS FAMILY.

KNOCKBAIN, SCOTLAND 1819. Bans were issued in

thought the family has always spelt it as Grey.

married Edmund Ludlow CLARKE b. 1805 Edinburugh in
1827. It would great if someone could give me some

HOUPTON/HOPETOUN was a second name of two Clarke
males. One was used for Leo Houpton CLARKE, the son
of William and Jeanette (nee AHRENFELD) CLARKE and the
other his son Jack Alfred Hopetoun CLARKE. I WOULD
LIKE TO KNOW WHERE THIS NAME ORIGINATED AS IT IS
LIKELY TO BE A FAMILY NAME FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE PAST.
JOHNSTON, James m. Elizabeth LAW. They had nine
children and they were born in LYNE and MEGGET,
SCOTLAND. They were Elizabeth b. 1823, David (my
g/great grandfather) b. 1825, Margaret b. 1827, and
William b. 1829. Janet b. 1831, James b. 1834, Jane b.

Zealand (1880) with 5 children on the �Stirlingshire�

record of most of their descendants.
JOHNSTON � David b. 1860, migrated. I am not sure if
he went to NZ. First but he married my grandmother
Mary Anne (known as Annie) MCINTOSH (dau. Charles and
Margaret nee GRANT) in Dubbo, NSW in 1895. They moved
to NZ when their two children (my father and sister)
were young. I have most details of my own family but
do not know when my grandfather died in New Zealand.

Zealand, m. JANE MURDOCK and had one daughter, Agnes
BRYSON b. 1895. Jane died and he married Emily

his brother Charles in 1856. *He and Mary later left

been verified. HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TRACE THIS
FAMILY IN USA.
MCINTOSH � Charles (as listed above) m. Margaret GRANT
in Campbelltown, NSW, AUSTRALIA in 1859 and had a
large family. They were my father�s grandparents. I
have a good record of most of them.
Colin and Charles� mother Anne (nee GRAY). Was listed
on shipping records as living at Newtown Valley near
Inverness, when they left Scotland.
MCINTOSH SCOTTISH ANCESTORS THAT I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO
CONNECT TO MY TREE, but I know they are related in
some way. During World War 1, my father visited two
�uncles� in GLASGOW. One, Colin MCINTOSH was a Notary
Public (solicitor) and he had one son (name unknown),
who owned a clothing warehouse), and two daughters.
One was Bethel or Withel or some name like that and
the other Morna. Morna was, or later became a music
teacher. They lived at 53 Woodville Gans, Langside
but I have been informed that this address no longer
exists. The other relation was Jack (? Nickname for
John) MCINTOSH. He was married but had no children
and lived near that address. He was a marine
engineer. THIS GROUP IS A REAL MYSTERY TO ME AND SO
FAR HAS ELUDED MY MANY SEARCHES TO CONNECT THEM TO THE
FAMILY. Unfortunately, I do not have the wives names
or anything that would help to identify them or the
children. Searching for the girls brought no result.
MCKINNON, Christina m. Edward Jacob AHRENFELD in
London c. 1855. She was b. Fort Augustus in Scotland
c. 1834. Any details about her family would be
appreciated. See Edward AHRENFELD for other
MURDOCK � Jane, NEW ZEALAND � no details known m.
POTTS � Sarah, wife of William FULLER � in ENGLAND.
Dau. Elizabeth b. 1755 m. Benjamin GOODE.
ROADKNIGHT, William who was married to Harriet
TWAMLEY (possibly m. England) and father of Jane
ROADKNIGHT b. 29 December 1925 in Tasmania m. 6
December 1847 in Victoria to William CLARKE b. 23
August 1827. Any details would be appreciated.
RYEMAN � Elizabeth d. 1806 m. Thomas Brain in ENGLAND.
SHAW � John. See Niel GRANT. Isle of SKYE.
SMITH � Samuel b.c. 1769 and his wife Mary --- from
WORCHESTER, England. Two sons, Edward b.c. 1797 and
James b.c. 1803 were both tried separately for theft,
sentenced to death and transported to Tasmania on the
�Princess Charlotte� in 1824. Edward was possibly
married at the time and later divorced by his wife.
This was a common occurrence when convicts were sent
abroad and there was no likelihood of ever returning
to England. There were possible other siblings �
Catherine b.c. 1791, Edward b.c. 1792, Thomas b.c.
1799 and Mary Ann b.c. 1808. Samuel Edward also
married a Mary (RAFFLES/ROFFLES) and his son, Samuel
Edward 2nd m. Lucy STANIFORTH (1st wife) and their son
Edward Albert (my grandfather) m. Annie Currie. Later
he changed the family name to SMYTHE. I have a good
record of the family in Australia.
SYKES � James. (Southern Scotland) See also Agnes
ARMSTRONG. There may have been other children besides
William b. 1828 and Margaret. CAN ANYONE HELP?
TWAMLEY, Harriet � see ROADKNIGHT above.
WOODBURN, Sarah was married to William CLARKE and
great grandmother to William Damian CLARKE listed
above. She was probably born and married in England.
I hold good records of most of these families
