Family Finder
First Name:

John Conibear

Updated November 12, 2004

About Our Family Research

John Conibear was born in Combemartin, Devon, England 13/10/1804.

John married Elizabeth (surname unknown), they had 2 sons and 1 daughter - Robert, born 1829-31, who married Agnes Goss; Richard born 1832, who married Margaret Grace; and Maryanne, born 1835.

Robert and Agnes had 6 children - Ellen, William Henry, Elizabeth Jane, Maryanne, Richard Conibear and Robert George. I am a decendent of William Henry.

Robert changed his surname from Conibear to 'Reed' when he came to Australia, as John Conibear, had been sent to Australia as a Convict. I believe that Reed was spelt wrong at some time and became Reid, and has been spelt Reid ever since.
