I am an Australian. I understand from family stories that my family came to Australia in a boat load of French people deported from Quebec, Canada, They were believed to have assisted in the financing of the American Revelution against the British. The family walked from Sydney to South Australia, earning living on the way by doing work on farming communities. They settled in the mid north of South Australia where they successfully raised sheep and wheat. I also understood they were Huganoats. I would be very pleased to glean any further information from anyone out there. The family were an independant, rebellious lot who held onto some strong french traditions to this day. There are quite a few Molyneaux's in Australia with various spellings. I have read some sites that suggest the origions were english, this does not appear to be the case with my family tree, my family have always hated the British with gusto.
