We go all the way back to the First Fleet.

We go all the way back to the First Fleet.

I have always been interested in the branches, trunk and roots of my family tree.     The orange lines show a marriage link and the green lines show the children they have had.   If you click on the names below you will be able to find out more about each of the people.  This is a living tree if you have any information, stories, anecdotes about any of the people please feel free to leave a comment in the section at the bottom of their page.  Also please comment about yourself too.

    Perhaps I can help you with the Maxfield side of the Family as it has now been completed. The first John Maxfield arrived in Sydney (from England) around 1816 and married Mary Shea who was also a Convict and had come from County Down Ireland.
    Their son John Maxfield married Catherine Murray who was born in Sydney of Irish parents. Their son Albert Edwin Maxfield married Marie Elizabeth Taylor and their son Albert Gerard Basil Maxfield was the father of your Dad, Dennis Maxfield.
    Marie Elizabeth Taylor’s mother was born in Lille, France near the Belgium border. Her name was Heloise Lemare Vincent and they brought the first Catholic Bookshop to Sydney, and lived a few metres from St. Benedict’s Church Broadway.
    The history of our family is extremely interesting and I hope to one day be able to travel to Lille to find more.

      I was surprised whilst doing further research tonight to come across your “Tree”. We haven’t been here since the First Fleet as we are celebrating 200 years in Sydney next October 2016. I went to Lille, France this May 2015 and have further information to share with you. Aunty June. Ms June Ross (nee Maxfield)
      Your grandmother was Doris Thelma Maxfield (nee Ryman). I am happy to share more via email.
