I live in the UK and am following the family line. I have been in contact with several of the Hewerdines in Australia mostly in the area north of Brisbane. There is also one in Canberra and one in New South Wales.
John Thomas Hewerdine and his wife Emma, with their three children, Walter, Robert and Alice, emigrated from England in 1887, together with John,s brother Henry. I believe John and Henry were brothers of my great grandfather William. What part of Australia do you live in.
