Andrea Penrose of South Gippsland, Victoria, Australia Updated October 5, 2003
About Our Family Research
At this stage I am looking for ancestors on my father's side of the family. Here are the details I know (not much yet) Don Penrose born 1938 in Melbourne, Australia (he has two brothers, Raymond and George). Their parents are:- Ernest Penrose (born in Melbourne probably in approx 1882, died in 1967) and Catherine Munro Penrose (nee Boyle) (born in Warrnambool in 1912). Ernest had two brothers; Henry and Arthur and a sister, Ruby (all born in the late 1800's in Melbourne). Their parents were William Thomas Penrose (born in Victoria somewhere around 1850) and Henrietta Penrose (nee Wyatt) (also born somewhere around 1850-60's in Ballarat area). We do not know who William Thomas Penrose's parents were or when he or they came out to Australia (most likely in the 1850'). We are looking for any information about William Thomas Penrose and his parents and ancestors as well as Henrietta Wyatt's family (her parents were Henry Wyatt and Lydia Blake and they came out to Australia, Ballarat, in the 1840-1850's). Please contact me if you can help us with any information. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
