  1. Greatly interested as Hannah Hitchens/Hutchings is my gt gt grandmother by her second marriage to Henry Samuels. Their daughter Louisa Matilda married to Jabez Brown was my gt grand mother.I have just this very day being trying to trace both parts of the familie’s movements in Victoria and NSW. When was Thomas Benson admitted to Liverpool asylum and why? Hannah and Henry’s 1st child Hannah was born in 1832 within days of his death and they did not mary until 1836 with permission of the govt. Hannah did not get her Conditional Pardon until 1838.Henry was also a convict.
    Cheers Penny

  2. Hi Lynne,
    Great Photos !!!!
    I am also the great grand daughter of Frederick John Sanders. My grandfather was Clement Constant Sanders (Fredericks Son). My father was Donald Clement Sanders. Would love to hear from you. The photo of William Sanders sent shivers through my spine, I looks like my father returned from his grave, every feature is the same as my fathers. Cheers Judy

    1. Hey Judy, My father James Sanders is the grandson of Clement Constant Sanders I guess that makes you cousins. His father Raymond Sanders was Donald’s brother. PS. the picture you posted is the same as the one I have hanging in our family room. The photo I have however is very clear courtesy of the ‘Kempsey Historical Society’ and it is titled ‘four generations of Sanders’ Cheers Steve Sanders

  3. my grandmother was Agnes JAne Sanders daughter of William and Mary Ann Skivings she married CHW Taylor would like to hear from any family JAnice Maurice nee TAylor Perth WA

  4. Hi Ros, Thank you for writing. Every piece of detail is so good to get. Now I need to place Ann in my head. I am still unsure about how the Hurrells came to Australia and am waiting on another Hurrell connection who said she could send that information.
    My father used to spend his holidays in Kinchela when he was a boy. Do write again. Yrs Lynne.

  5. Hi Lynne,

    Just stumbled on your site and what a site it is! John Curtis and Ann Moran are my ggg.grandparents. James, their son, is my gg.grandfather. I lived most of my life at Maroubra. Mary Parsons’ (James’ wife) headstone is also at Botany, but I’m not sure if it is still standing. James’ daughter Teresa married into the Meillon family and so we are connected to John Meillon the actor. I’d love to know more about Ann Moran; she is one tough lady. Cheers, Kim.

  6. Hi Lynne

    I am descended also from frederick. My GF was Clarence McLeay Sanders so I suppose that makes us cousins. Would love to get together and discuss details. My mobile is 0412 221 587 and I live in Port Macquarie.

    Regards
    Chris

  7. Hello there
    I happened across your website this evening and noticed you have a link to mine in connection with the Brilliant. You have done a marvellous job with your site, can you tell me what web program you used. Quite co-incidentally I lived in Laurieton for many years and so have heard of some of your names through articles in the local paper. Additionally I think the land purchased near Condong from John McLeod is a link to my family. My McLeods came on the Brilliant and owned some land in that area, they were also connected to the sugar mill. Cheers Gabrielle

  8. Hi Gabrielle. My Mcleods and Mackays were on the Brilliant. Wilhellmina Mcleod and her sisters and brother Donald. Her mother was Janet Mackay. I have quite a few stories about them thanks to newly found family. They went to the Hunter Valley and then some came on to Tweed. It was my Great Grandfather John Bell whose mother was Wilhelmina who went with his wife Mary Ann mcNeil to Laurieton and my mother’s father, William Allen Bell, was born there. We often went there as children. Surely they must be connected. I live near Condong and Tumbulgum now and am very familiar with this area. Thank you for making contact and for the details on your website. Yrs Lynne.

    1. Hi, is the Janet Mackay you have here, was she married to Angus Mackay, her parents Alexander & Martha (Boyle) McMillan, Janet is my great grandmother’s sister Martha (McMillan) Roy

  9. I live in Danville, Virginia. USA. My Grandfather was Thomas Hercules Hurrell fm the UK. He died around 1931 in Texas somewhere. He was a Merchant Marine. We know little about him other than that his family lived near London and he had an Aunt, Ursula Cox who was a concert pianist in the early 1900’s. My mother’s name is Janie Elizabeth Hurrell. I would love to find out more about his family. Emails would be welcomed. Great Website. Cathy

  10. My connection Mary Ann Skevings sister Harriett. I have come across some info on The family of William and Mary Ann. My question is the parents of William Sanders 1823, Jocelyn namely on many researchers notes William Sanders and Elizabeth Green, however on Williams death cert shown on you site and a copy of which I have the fathers name is John. Were William and John the same person. Can you help solve this?

  11. Hi Lynne, we share a lot of GG-ancestors. I’m a John Quirk descendant.

    James Bell – I can help you there – he died in early Feb 1852, as you’ll see toward the bottom of the 3rd column on p.2 of this page of the Maitland Mercury
    http://www.nla.gov.au/ferguson/14403676/18520214/00100795/2-2.pdf

    He’s been well researched by others, but no breakthrough back to family in Glasgow unfortunately – I was sent a transcript of his trial if you are interested, refers to him living with his sister but no name – it wasn’t housebreaking as such, he and another (who got away) were attempting to bore through the floor of a stationery store.

    Bells/Quirks/McLeods/ Lauries are well worked veins, lots of genies working on it over the years but I’d never google-searched before so glad to find your site.

    Feel free to contact me off-line. Love to share.

  12. Hi again Lynne,I found your website the other night(very late)& was so excited.Yes I too am the GGGGGG granddaughter of Thomas Sanders & Martha Bond.My father was Albert Clarence Rowe son of Hercules William Rowe who was the son of Harriet Francis Sanders & Thomas Rowe.I can fill you in on from Hercules William onwards.
    Hercules William married Margaret Ann Warneton Anderson(she died in 1918 from the Spanish flu)they lived in Balmain at the time.I am trying to find out about the Andersons her father was Alexander and her mother was Margaret.My father Albert Clarence married Jessie Summerhill(she has just turned 90 and is going great guns)So now I’m on the trail of Andersons & Summerhills.Thankyou for doing such a great job.Please keep in contact, cousin. Regards Sharon(nee Rowe)

  13. Hello Lynne,
    I am a GGGgrandson of John Curtis and Ann Moran, GGgrandson of Kitty Curtis and George Eccleston on one side,and Sarah Walsh and Fintan Delaney on the other. I have lived in Perth the past fifty-four years although I grew up in Cooma, fairly near the early family areas around the Snowy River. It was good to see all the excellent work that you have done, honouring your ancestors.
    Cheers
    Allan Delaney

  14. hi Lynne, im a grandson of Theo Hurrell, great grandson of thomas Dennis, great great grandson son of John Hurrell. Im quite sure i have a photo of John Hurrell. Please contact me

  15. Hi Lynne i see you have done a lot of research into your family history. I live in Exeter, Silverton and Kenton are both villages 7 or 8 miles away in opposite directions. Do you have photos of these places?

      1. Sanders is quite a common name. I’ll try to pop out there and take photos of the oldest parts. It will take me a few weeks because I have and assignment to write but it’s a nice reason to go out with the camera!

      2. THank you. I would like that very much. I have one picture with my grandfather in WW1 with a relative in Devon but we don’t know who it was and his brother ,Bert, stayed with relatives there before going to France where he died.
        My brother went to Powderham Castle and was told he looked like one of the Earls. He thought that was pretty funny. Good Luck with your assignment. What are you studying ?

  16. Hi Lynne, My name is Alan Scobie, I am the grandson of James Alexander Bell and Hannah Alberta Bell, of Wingham, James Bell was the son of John William Bell, and Mary Ann Bell ( McNeil ) of Laurieton, my family ancestry
    goes all the way from Condong, Kempsey, Comboyne, Killabakh. I would love to have a talk to you some time.

  17. Hey my names Tamarra
    I was searching for a cousin that lives in condong in Nsw Australia. One of my relatives lea reaves told me to search for him a few years ago and I never got around to it so I thought I’d try now. His name is josh bell I don’t know much about him only that he is around my age 23, he lives in condong and he is my cousin. If you know anything that would be great. As I was looking through your website I saw that your married to issy for real? That spun me out as I am ray youngs step daughter crazy coincidents 🙂

    1. Hi Tamarra. I don’t know Josh Bell but I am interested because I do know my Bell ancestors lived all along that stretch of the Tweed River.
      Fancy you being Ray Young’s step daughter . I didn’t meet him but I shall tell Izzy. I wonder how we could locate Josh Bell. I will look. Yrs Lynne.

  18. Hi Lynne,

    Is your James Bell a convict from Glasgow

    My Great Great Grandfather was Campbell Roy, from Gallows Gate, Glasgow Scotland born 1808

    I have a feeling these two were convicted together for stealing clothes from James Barton in Parkhead, Glasgow

    I was reading your site last night & you said that James Bell moved to Paterson NSW when he got his Ticket of Leave (I left a massage for you comments about it…… Campbell Roy went to Beautford Vic but his son travelled on to Paterson area because his material grandmother was there (his mum died in child birth) ….. Timothy Charles Roy married Martha McMillan at her father place, Myall Creek, Myall Creek Road, not far from Dungog

    Martha (McMillan) Roy had a sister Letitia McMillan b 1837 Scotland d 1860 – who married John Sanders b 1833 England, they married 1856 at her father house Myall Creek, near Dungog

    They had 3 children

    John Sanders 1857 – 1860

    Alexander John Sanders 1858 – 1933 I’d say Alexander came from his grandfather Alexander McMillan

    Elizabeth Ann Sanders 1860 -1942 She also went by the name of her mother Letitia, thinking her mother died in childbirth or not long

    after going by the dates from a constriction of the bowels

    John Sanders was a splitter & fencer at Blair Duguid near Lochinvar NSW, we don’t have much information on John

    I have a photo of Elizabeth Ann later in life & she looks very stern

    Looking forward to hearing from you, bit excited, I grow up in the Campbelltown area NSW, I now live in Tamworth, I am Irene Rebecca

    Roy, ….. Letitia & John would be my great aunt & uncle 🙂 x

    I tried to send this by email but you don’t have one 🙂 x

    1. Sorry for the delay in responding. I don’t think it is the same James Bell because our James was convicted of robbing an oyster bar. They were obviously from the same small area in Glasgow and then in the same area in NSW but the Hunter Region had a few James Bells. I have been trying to find the site which details them but am not thinking quite clearly due to the sudden death of my partner in June. I shall see what I can find. Yrs Lynne.

  19. Hi Lynne, My name is Sue French and I am a great granddaughter of Thomas Dennis Hurrell.
    I am currently in Northern France and have been visiting the WW1 battlefields. One of the many reasons for my interest was the discovery that my grandfather, Theodore Thomas Hurrell attempted to enlist in the AIF just a month before the war ended. As I continued my family researches, I discovered that six of his first cousins had gone to the war and only one returned. I have been able to photograph the graves and commemorations for Leighton Roy Johnston at Peronne Communal Cemetery Extension, Morris Price at Corbie Communal Cemetery Extension, Australian Section and Herbert Burdett Sanders at Villers-Bretonneux.
    I also have photos for Alexander Macleay Sanders grave at Gallipoli.
    I would like to share these photos with you and the wider Hurrell clan, but I’m not sure how I can do this. Perhaps you can let me know?

    1. Hi Sue, That is very exciting for us. There are several ways you could share. You could send me an email with attachments and a background like the one you have written here and I can post them here and on Facebook. If you belong to Facebook we have a SANDERS ( including the Hurrell girls who married the Sanders boys) group which is very active and there is a HURRELL group which is also very active. Either way would work well. What a nice thing to wake up to on a wet Sunday. Yrs Lynne.
