I have only recently discovered Genforum, and I realise that it is a long time since your message. However, the Rawling family you mention is my father's family, and over the years, intermittently, i have gathered quite a bit of information - on visits to the UK and while living there for short periods. I woudl be very interested in exchanging information. My grandfather, Frederick William Rawling(s) came to Australia in 1901. He was the son of Estill rawling, grandson of Thomas.I have a second cousin in Los Angeles who has done a lot of work on a brother of my grandfather's, who went to Canada then the US a little later.
