I am searching this family connection and would like to hear from anyone with any further information.
James Poll/Paul (b: 1/11/1818 son of James Poll and Lucy Gooch m: 26/07.1808) was transported to Australia in 1832.
In Australia he married Margaret McMullan and had Mary (b: 1839), John, Ann (b: 1841?), James (b: 1843), Matilda (b:1845), William (b: 1848),Margaret (b: 1850), Susan (b: 1852) and Samuel (b: 1854). At some stage after Samuel's birth the family name was changed to Paul. James died in Singleton in 1886.
Ann Paul had a son William Walter/Walter William in 1867. She married George Shearer in 1873.
William Walter m: Emily Elizabeth Matthews in Queensland in 1892 and moved to Patricks Plains where they had Ada & Selina in 1895, Ernest Albert Charles 1897 and Edith Maud 1898.
Edith Maud married James Francis Martin in 1920 and had 5 children Phyllis 1921-1997, Frances, June, Vivian Maxwell (Paddy) 1926-1988, and Garnet Hilton.
Phyllis was my mother she married Leslie George Symons (1918 - 2000) and had 8 children (6 boys & 2 girls).
I have been married twice and have 2 daughters and 1 son.
My mother's sisters would like to know anything available about their forebears.
