About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

TROVE Tuesday; Simon Grant

Simon Grant.
 
 
 
 
Other than Simon's arrival, at Port Phillip, as an exile, on 9 April 1846, these two notices are all that I have found (so far), about Simon. He was my Great-Great-Grandfather.
Born in Scotland c1829, he was only 17 when he arrived here. His crime was theft.
What he did between his arrival in 1846 and his marriage, to Ann Cameron, in 1850, remains a mystery. One I hope to solve.
 
Bye for now,
Lilian.
