Bert, I forgot to mention; there were 3 Inks brothers who came over from England in about 1766 on convict ships. Thomas seemed to be accused of more serious crimes than his brothers. His brothers were John and William. There may have been some sisters who came with him but I'm not sure. As far as I know, no one has been able to go any farther back than these brothers. I have some information on the brothers, spouses, and children.
