They spent some time at Stoney Creek then at Tarnagulla where 3 children were registered, and settled in the Ironbark Gully area, where they built a daub house still owned by the family over 140 years later.

John Grieves

From on Wed, 26 Oct 2005
Hello Elizabeth,
We are probably rellies of some sort. I notice your GRIEVES entry on your website has a couple of mistakes. John and Janet had 2 boys and 8 girls. I have pictures of them all.
I am the son of Lawrence Grieves.
John arrived in Australia in 1858, aged 16, with his father Robert and mother Mary (Wilson) Grieves. They wrote back to Robert's sister Mary Ann (Grieve) Steel or Steell from 1858 to 1873 and the letters have been kept. If you'd like to read them I'll post you copies of the material. Let me know by email.
It appears that Robert was christened as GRIEVE. There was another sister Francis.
Go to www.nevra.com.au/gen.html to see my brother's and my pedigree.
