About Whittens in AU

I am Tim Hobson, son of Beth, daughter of Alfred, son of Anthony WHITTEN who came to Australia with his good mate & sibling Henry, in 1862; followed by Joseph: 1863, Ann: 1864 and Edward: 1865, naively first thought to be due to the Irish potato famine...but (Marjorie Whitten believes the more likely reason was family disputes & hot-headedness) or maybe, the tuberculosis scare???
I am also
Tim Hobson, son of Allan, son of Sydney HOBSON who came to Australia in 1910 & Sydney's Father, Edward (Ted) who arrived about 1924. I have (with Alan Alderton, Lexie Prince & many others) been verifying & getting information on the Whitten family history in a location where others can check out the details & comment accordingly.
Alan started with Gladys Whitten's data & Russ Bell'š Research which has been updated & reprinted. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information about their own family. So, PLEASE contact me with family births, marriages, deaths or anecdotes, to allow our kids to find out from where they came and what their forebears were like? Photos(old or new) are particularly welcome. What is normal & boring to us today may well be cool & fascinating to our descendants. (Look! It's an actual petrol-powered vehicle!) OR maybe you could HELP to identify these Unknown people? Click Here Please sign the guest book AND update me on ANY missing family details PLEASE let me know if there is ANYTHING incorrect, missing or there are any little glitches made because I am human, and you would like them fixed. This site would be a waste if the information could not be corrected. Other Family Sites: ..... COCK HASLAM/HASLEM HOBSON STEPHENS .....
