Jesse Huntingford

From on Monday, 1 September, 2008

Dear Elizabeth,
I was interested to see your bit on Charles Huntingford and Susannah Sleeman. I am doing (for the past 40 years!) a One Name Study of the Huntingford family. I have always understood that Charles and Susannah met on the ship coming to Australia. The family story was that her brother was not there to meet her and she married Charles Huntingford as single ladies were in a precarious position on their own.

Jesse Thomas was a different family altogether. His parents were Jesse and Caroline Huntingford of Twickenham, London. Charles came from Bramshott as you say. I have a photograph of Charles if you would like a copy. It came from one of his descendants, Ivan Gray.
Keep up the good work, Lyn (McCulloch nee Huntingford)
PS I am interested to know more about the places Charles lived in and the life they led. It is fascinating stuff. I can send you one of my newsletters if you want. I do one a year about my Huntingford research.
