Hello Simon. I have conversed with your father some time ago. I hope you go ahead with the website. I can supply some information, certificates, documents etc to the site in relation to the Tasmanian branch of the family. I am a direct descendant from John Trappes (1400-), and possibly Ralp Trappes (1236). My grt,grt grandfather was Charles George Trappes who died at Grahamstown South Africa. His widow, Frances Houston emigrated to Tasmania with her two sons Charles & Frances. I am the great grandson of Frances.
