Ancestors of Roger Stuart Knowles of Salisbury East,S.Austrl Updated January 25, 2003
About Our Family Research
Most of my ancestors travelled to South Australia during the mid 1800s. They travelled from various parts of England, and settled in the Encounter Bay area, in addition to the Riverland area along the River Murray. One family was connected to the Railways as an Engineer, and as such moved around South Australia following work as it arose. This family name was my Maternal Grandparents(Sharley), and they came from Derbyshire(UK). My father's Grandparents came from Ewell in Surrey(UK)and settled in the Riverland. I have so far identified most of my ancestors going back 3 Generations. In addition, I have been able to track approx half of the 4th Generation back. With a couple of exceptions, nearly all of the Generations who travelled to Australia, and are buried here have been tracked down.
