My ancesters came from Middlesex to Australia in the 1850s. Thomas South (b 1784 Middlesex England, d 1863 in NSW Australia) was married to Maria Ansell (b 8 March 1795 in Stepney, St George in the East, married 24 Feb 1824 in St Mary's Whitechapel, d 9 December 1859, buried in Tower Hamlets Cemetry, Bow). Their children were Sarah Martha South (b 24 Dec 1824 in Limehouse, married John Williams 1862 in NSW), Jane South (b 27 Sept 1827 in Limehouse, died 3 Nov 1828 in Limehouse) Thomas Samuel South (b 14 Nov 1829 in Limehouse, d 28 Sept 1890 in NSW Australia) John Abraham South (b 16 June 1832 in Whitechapel, married Esther Emberson in 1857 in NSW Australia) and Samuel Norman South (b 13 Dec 1834 in Limehouse, married Mary Cusick 1862 in NSW Australia, d 25 May 1904 in NSW Australia.)
Thomas South's occupation was listed on Thomas Samuel's baptism certificate as "shipwright" and I believe his father was a Francis South.
I have a copy of a letter from Maria Ansell and Samuel Norman in London sent to John Abraham and Thomas Samuel in Perth Western Australia in 1854, just after they had left England. I do not know of any relatives who stayed in England after the family moved to Australia.
