Re: Hello Ritchings Family
Hi Bryan and Tina (and any other Ritchings that may read this).
My name is Shayne David Ritchings.I am 30 and I live in Mackay, Queensland, Australia.My branch of the Ritchings family originated from Kingaroy, a small farming district in the South East of Queensland.We are fairly well scattered across Queensland now.
There are not many Ritchings in Australia.I would estimate less than 100 that carry the Ritchings name.
My Grandfather's name was Arthur Ritchings.He had a daughter (Joyce) and two sons (Bevan and Ivan).I don't know much about Arthur's generation and previous.One day I hope to find out when they entered Australia, and where from.
I am excited to have finally found out where the Ritchings name originates from - I have been trying to find that out for some time.Do you know what area of England it came from at all?
