Bit More,

Not sure, but possible arrival in NSW on 15 June 1911 - a Mr W Pheasant, ex the Mamari which had left the UK from the Port of London.

We will try to find further info about that voyage and edit this post shortly.

EDIT 1
The Mamari was built 1904. 5627 tons. Shaw Savill Line.   Is this another vessel that may have been part of an immigration plan sending young men from Britain to the Dominions?  Not sure but .....

I've had a look at the updated Australian priority list and see this man is still on their list. I am reasonably certain I can find an mDNA connection for him if that is still required (famous last words) but it looks as if his sisters had daughters

I am now very certain that I can find an mt DNA descendant for this man but am getting no response to my query of whether this labour (of many hours) is still required

I have had a phone call from his niece who is willing to assist the Australian MOD with their project.

Hi, I am a Pheasant descendant living in Australia but am not sure whether our branch is connected to this Walter Pheasant who died at Fromelles. Is there a living descendant who wouldn't mind chatting via email to try and see what possible connections there may be? There are very few of us in Australia although many families in England. Our branch can be traced back to Bedfordshire.
Thanks!

Hello Molly

Welcome to Rootschat  :D

You're best bet would be to talk to Tim and Sandra at the Australian Fromelles Descendants website

The link to the fromelles database has been removed whilst we locate the new website link 2019 http://web.archive.org/web/20100409162945/http://www.fromelles.net

What they don't know about the families probably isn't worth knowing.

This is the first time I have used this site!
I am a relative of Walter Pheasant, his father Richard Farnell Pheasant is the younger brother of my great grandfather, John Farnell Pheasant.
Two of Walter's counsins were also killed in WW1, both in France.
Albert Edward Pheasant d.16.8.1917, Tyne Cot Memorial
Henry Farnell Pheasant d. 12.11.1916, Thiepval Memorial.

Unfortunately my research into the family tree a few years ago concentrated on my great grandfather, John.

I understand that Walter Pheasant is one of the soldiers buried in Pheasant Wood, is this correct?
