Payne family in Sydney, New South Wales
« on: Tuesday 25 August 20 17:33 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have a connection to James Henry Payne born 1828 in Kent, England and died in Marrickville, Sydney in 1891? He was a brickmaker from Upton cum Chalvey near Slough in Buckinghamshire and he took his second wife, Elizabeth (Harris) and children to Australia in about 1875. He had two younger brothers, also brickmakers from Chalvey, George and Joseph who may have joined him later. Their mother was Susannah Payne nee Kennett and their father was Joseph Howard. The boys may have had Howard/Payne as their surnames. With the help of Familytreedna I think that one of them may be the father of my illegitimate g. grandfather. Any clues very gratefully received! Thanks, Sue

Thanks so much, I'll try that. I have several trees on Ancestry, and am researching every day but no luck finding my dna connction yet. I'll get there in the end! Sue
