Hello again Forum re: Lucas Family - huge thanks!

These names certainly echo from childhood 'listening in to adult conversations'  and "ring" true throughout Emmie's descendants as well! :D

The name Neilson (Dinah Nina) is also interesting - am wondering if there is a Scandinavian connection now?

Also wondering how the Francis George branch of the Lucas's arrived in the 'Land Down Under'?

Certainly have some homework to do........... :P

Happy searching to all!

Quick thanks again Forum - Lucas Family.

Opps! Meant 'when' and from 'where' - 'what'? Ship of course - reminded of the era.

Wow! Trove articles - a treasure 'trove' of family gems - ta.

Muswellbrook Cemetery info - incentive to visit - ta also.

S.

LUCAS ..... locality Musswellbrook  :)

LUCAS FG 19 Aug 1911
LUCAS Fanny 5 Feb 1904


The Deceased Estate files are usually full of family history 'goodies' .... including at times BDM certs, hand-drawn family tree charts etc particularly if the estate has been contested and witnesses called to prove their relationship to the deceased.

Cheers,  JM

Hi,
Emmie is the granddaughter of James John Lucas and Fanny Lucas nee Green (sister of my ancestor Aaron Green). The Green family came to Australia in 1855:
Truro (694), dep 14 2 1855, arr 27 5 1855, 102 days, 
GREEN Aaron 15   
GREEN Anne 13 and family, 
GREEN Fanny 20 and sister
GREEN Hannah 51 and family
GREEN James 57 and family
GREEN Louisa 22 and sister

I do not know where the Lucas family came from as yet - still searching,
GREEN, DURK, PITTARD Somerset. TINWORTH, BANKS, Cambridge, COOK, Lincoln.WHEELER, Berkshire. KIRBY, Surrey, HART, Huntingdon TIPPING Lancs, SMALLWOOD, MILLER, GORDON,  London. DALTON, CREAVY, RYAN, HICKEY Ireland. and their descendants in AUSTRALIA.
