Hi Irret,

I have a Rose Dighton in my family tree. She was born on 24/5/1915 in Kent. She married a John (known as Jack) James, he was born in Northumberland Heath, Erith Kent, this is quite close to Plumstead.. Hope this is of some help. Cheers Kuri. :D

Hi, I have relatives from footscray called Dighton and my great gran lived in an old gypsy caravan before she died and the van was set fire as was the tradition. My name is Dighton and my grand father was Nou Dighton and had brothers Levi and Kenza. We have an old painting of my Gran and a photo of her sitting on the steps of her van. I am trying to trace the history myself.
