My g grandparents Isaac and Emily SQUIRE lived here 1885-1924. I visited Minehead/Dunster (Somerset England) in 2007 and took this photo of Staunton Cottage.

News - From January 2019, I have started writing narratives about each of the 20 or so ancestors that arrived in Adelaide, South Australia, between 1836 and 1920. So far, I have written some fourteen narratives. My focus is on researching and writing about the descendants of each immigrant family, and their direct ancestors who mostly came from the UK. In stage 2, I will write about their families/partners, add maps, photos, newspaper snippets, etc., and then write about associated families.

Welcome - most people arrive here after searching for one of their ancestors. The link for 'First time users' might provide help to find what information I have. The search boxes to the top left are worth trying to see who pops up. The 'About me' page might help explain other life connections we may have. I live in Adelaide, Australia, and my web hosting is in the U.S.

This web site contains information from around fifty years of research and information accumulation, and celebrates more than thirty years of my web presence. You are free to use my information (with acknowledgement please), but note that details of living people are not generally available. If a source transcript or citation is included, then I have personally found and transcribed the source record or index. Some of my information has been gathered and validated by others, and while I have confidence in the researcher, I have not checked all the data.

I welcome questions, new information, comments or corrections about my research, content, or on any privacy issue. You can Email me at, or use the inbuilt contact forms. I try to reply within 24 hours. You can also find me on LinkedIn, and on Facebook.
