Place names
« on: Wednesday 28 July 10 13:43 BST (UK) »
Could someone help with a couple of place names?

"Jangular" NSW.
and
"Kooringa" - this could be a place name S. Australia? or a house name.

Thank you for any help,

Thank you Kris.
I had some of the same info, I thought "Jangular" was not right.

thank you  :).
I think the William Wheatley was from Sussex, but there was also a Wheatley family from around Penshurst Kent. To date I have not found a connection between the two family's, so William Crundwell could be the "missing link"?
