Can anyone help me find decendants of or information of births, marriages and deaths of the Attwood family who left Kent, England in 1871 -72 and settled in Queensland? George Thomas Attwood and his wife, Elizabeth (nee Stickings) had a son, Albert (my grandfather) born 16 August 1870, East Sutton, Kent, England, a son, William, born 17March1874 in Queensland, they also had daughters but I have no details. I believe the family had a timber business in Queensland in the 1900's. Albert trained as a tailor and when he was 21, left his family in Queensland and came back to England where he worked as a tailor - journeyman. He was injured in WW1 and died of T.B. (13Feb1926)in the (Todmorden, West Yorksire, England)workhouse. He was buried at Mankinowles Chapel cemetary in a pauper's grave with SIX other unfortunates. - He should have stayed in Australia!!
If anyone can help, or you know any Attwoods there, please tell them about this message. Thanks! June S. Waldo (nee Attwood)
