My twig on the tree begins with Henry, eldest son of Richard and Rhoda who lived in the Tollgate at Fringford near Stoke Lyne.Henry married Elizabeth Whitfield in Lancashire and then emigrated to Australia in 1870.
Henry and Elizabeth, after a brief stay in Mackay, became the first white settlers on Magnetic Island off the North Queensland coast.
