I am Tim Hobson, son of Beth, daughter of Alfred, son of Anthony WHITTEN who came to Australia about the same time as siblings Henry62, Joseph63, Ann63-4? then Edward65 in the 1860s naively thought to be due to the Irish potato famine (but Marjorie Whitten believes it more likely that the reason for emigration was family disputes & hot-headedness); or was it 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.
and anyone with photos or anecdotes that would help expand this presentation?
