Just wondering if anyone might have any information on a traveller/gypsy family known as Southwell. They were primarily around East Wellow of years about 1800-1900 and some immigrated to Australia. I believe them to be gypsies/travellers because I have found on the records occupations like "Hawker" and "Dealer" etc. and a lot of them seemed to move around a lot without any records of addresses.

Also, I am not sure if this is another indication, but using FamilySearch, there is an affiliate record type, and in some it says Household and this is in the residence records. I am not sure if this means whether they are living in a house or not but if anyone could help me on this then please do.

Thank you.
