Hi Grahame,

I am not related to the Westburys at all. I am in Australia though!

Rootschat is a community of helpful people from all over the World.

The info I found on John Westbury and Parents was from records available on-line.

Capetown found you records on Ancestry and Shume (Stephanie) Australian records.

Hi Trish1120
Thank you so much for all the help, I really appreciate it. I am also thankful to Capetown and Shume (Stephanie) for both your input too.  Are either of you part of the Westbury family?
The way I accidentally came upon this site, I was following a guy, Nick Westbury, who placed posts maybe 8 years ago looking for any info on the Westbury family. Nick was looking around 1400s especially Lord Westbury MP and legal reformer 1457/8 who is quoted for his judgement to law student even today.  But it seems his name was taken up from peerage records and was not a Westbury through his genealogy records. As I am new to the Family Tree research I need to now go through all this a see if I can make sense of it and then find out what is my next logical step.
Starting with an old newspaper is not always the best place to start as you find, as I have, the errors you assumed were facts.
Thanks again to all of you for this great assistance.
Kind regards
Grahame

Go over it all and make up a chart (Family Tree) and if you need any help just add it to this query in the future.

Thanks Trish,
That is what I plan to do, again I really appreciate your help. 
As this is my first family search attempt I am very happy where I have come to, even though it is totally not what I expected or have been told through family conversations with older aunts when I was very young, and that is a long, long time ago.
Initially I tried using Ancestry.com and paid for a search of my family history and what came back was totally incorrect and had nothing to do with my family, so I have not ventured into that site again. Anyway I will get to it!
Kind regards
Grahame

Hi Grahame

My Granfather Colin Westbury born 1915 said that he went to a will reading in the 1950s and all the relatives of John Westbury born 1876 and James born 1873 were told to leave as they were Hannah`s children from another father , that John born 1824  had raised as his own .....i cant find their births .

regards Steve

Hi Steve,
Thanks for this. As I understand, John Westbury Born 1824 Eastleach Turville, Gloucestershire, England, baptised 11 July 1824 Eastleach Turville, he married Ann Kilmister at Highworth, Wiltshire, Sept 1856.  They had a daughter Cassandra.  They embarked on a sea voyage from Liverpool to Sydney, Australia on the ship "Castilian" arriving in Sydney 16 June 1858.  Cassandra Westbury died, her death registered at Raymond Terrace district, NSW 1858. Ann WESTBURY died 1873, AGE 55 YEARS in TENTERFIELD NSW. John Westbury then married Hannah Hoult in Tenterfield in 1876. Hannah Hoult was originally from East End London, England. John Westbury, Farmer, died Tenterfield 1894 aged 70 years.
John Westbury b. 1876 died 1936 aged 60. Hannah Westbury, Hannah died 1952 Long Jetty NSW, widow. Her Will was administered by W Westbury - Children born to John and Hannah all at Tenterfield, were William b 1880, Thomas b 1883, Elizabeth 1884, Sarah b 1889, Robert b 1891. (no mention of John Westbury b. 1876 or Richard).  However I am aware that Hannah changed her religion from Church of England to Roman Catholic, so maybe that caused a family split? 
I am unaware of your grandfather, Colin Westbury or James Westbury?  Also I have found a Newspaper article from the Tenterfield Star, Monday 6 June 1955 by N. Crawford - Extracts from Reminiscences by RICHARD WESTBURY in (1942), Richard was then of resident at Wallangarra Qld. Richard b. 1880 said he was younger brother of John Westbury b. 1876 and his father John Westbury b. 1824 in England, was early pioneer settler of Leech’s Gully. Richard said "My father, John Westbury married Hannah Hoult in Tenterfield some time in 1876". John married Hannah after his first wife died in 1873. Hannah Hoult was originally from the East End of London, England.
I was also unaware that Hannah Westbury had remarried as I was under the impression that she continued to use the name Hannah Westbury widow, when she died at Long Jetty NSW 1952?
So how do you fit into the Westbury family, Steve? and who was Colin Westbury's father? Also do you know how old was Hannah Westbury when she died in 1952?
Hope this is of some use?  Cheers Grahame
