Dear Jane, The Moncktons in Australia are both Kentish and from the Galway line. I am descended through the Galway line when my great grandfather came to Australia in the mid 1800s to start a sugar cane plantation in Maryborough in Queensland. Other Moncktons from the Kentish side seem to have come to Australia and settled in Armidale NSW area about the same time and have spread from there. There are about 70-80 in the phone books around Australia now maybe more. There are also bothe sides of the family in NZ from about the same time. The problem is no one has kept track of them all since the book published in 1880s very well. What is your interest?
