Hello out there,
I stumbled across this website totally by accident today.I hope someone will be able to come back to me with any information they might have of the above Eyre.
I do know that Charles Ormond Eyre was the son of Governor Eyre of Jamaica and one of Australia's earliest explorers.He was born in West Indies in 1856 and educated at Eton, England.
Charles Ormond Eyre came to Fiji with Sir Arthur Gordon and later went on to plant and buy copra.He is buried in the family cemetery in Buca Bay on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji.
Charles Ormond Eyre is my great grandfather and I would like to know more about his family before they came to settle in Fiji.
I hope someone out there can help me.
