She told me there were a few books written about them.
I did try to find siblings Elizabeth and Charles Lewis born around 1795/1797, from memory I think there were a couple of possibilities, I have Charles from the Neptune being born at Stepney, England.

Looks like there is quiet a lot of info on them, the lady did suggest that it was worth looking into to see if there was a connection to my Charles.

I will get some of my hardcopy local history out, but probably not get the spare moments to go through until next weekend.... but here is some online info on Thomas BOYD ... so I am concerned as to where the surname changed from SMITH to BOYD .... and why the library has given you info from a family history folder when they already had the surname as BOYD on parish maps from the 1850s ....  within their own holdings...   :)

Early Settlers:
During the 1840's Henry Denny occupied the land owned by Boughton. Denny assisted cattle stealers.

In 1853 Thomas Boyd brought John Taaffe and his family to Lake Macquarie Heads. Taaffe selected a portion of land on a hill near Galgabba Point at the southern end of Pelican Flat. Two years later in 1855 Boyd and family settled nearby.

By 1860 a settler named Frederick Chaney had also come to the district.

Thanks so much, your such a wiz, I actually spent hours looking for a sister for Charles I got so sick of it.
One last query before I go,  do you know how I can find descendants of Joseph Lewis?

Start with the info about his children as per his d.c

Check this against both NSW bdm indexes and electoral rolls ....  check who inherited,  etc....   follow the lads as most often one would get the land ....   title deeds, probates, directories all have addresses, not just names ...
