My family   (about 1985)

L - R   Louise Kathy; John Edward; Angela Maree; Yvonne Margaret and John Patrick Short

I am the great, great grandson of John Short who arrived in New South Wales on 9 July 1829 aboard the Waterloo. John, who was born c1803 in Tingwick, Buckinghamshire, England, was convicted of stealing in a dwelling-house in Pinner, Middlesex and was transported beyond the seas.

My aims are

to share what I have found out about John's decendents and ancestors and also about the Gough, Dangerfield and Tame families which have become linked to my branch of the Short family in Australia.

to learn more about the members of these families from those who might visit my site.  Can you help?
