Boyes brothers from Yorkshire to Victoria in gold rush
« on: Friday 16 February 18 20:30 GMT (UK) »
Hoping to find anyone who has knowledge of the families of John Boyes and Thomas Boyes from Yorkshire, England who sailed to Melbourne and settled near Wodonga in NE of Victoria. After failure in the gold rush they settled and Thomas was a grazier and wine maker, John a tradesman and later a local councillor. I know there are many descendents still in this area and might be able to add a bit to the tree.

Dear Ros,
Very many thanks for finding these. Do you have a connection with Boyes family. If you have an interest I can provide a lot of information about the family before the young men left England.
If not, thanks again for your time spent,
Ray

Hi Ray,
   No I am not connected - I just noticed a few lengthy obits  which I thought would help you fill some gaps and give you a picture of their lives.   Just in case you didn't already have them ...

   However  I understand that you are are mostly interested in contacting family members, so I didn't continue.
