Received 26 Feb 2003 from who has discovered his ancestry includes several surnames I have researched. As this site includes names that have arisen while doing a family, links are the reason most families are listed.
Dorothy Grace Monsell b. Sebastopol [Ballarat] 1904, is the daughter of John Devain Monsell & Annie Lee, [youngest of 3 known children]. She married Norman William Ladner [1875-1917], 2nd son of Charles Curnow Ladner & Emily Ellen COLLIVER. Charles Curnow Ladner is the brother of my maternal Grandfather, Francis John Ladner [1832-1906].

See the Ladner listing above.
J Ahern begins with his Ahern family and continues with the Lummis and Muller families, (Lummis has their own Page)
That's not all .... Next comes the GILES family. (See the Giles, Ladner, Monsell and Opie listings below.)
Ada Mary LADNER [1870-1934] sister of the above Ladners ie, Charles & Francis, married Francis Henry GILES of Little Bendigo in 1891.
Francis Henry was the first born of James Giles & Edith Ellen TODD. The other 2 are
Eunice Ursula Giles [1892-1977] &
Leslie Roy Giles [1894-1964].
I have not been able to make a connection with Peter Giles / Sarah Harvey but it is highly possible that they could be related.
Ada Ladner & Francis Giles had 6 children, all born in Ballarat East.

To finish up with, there are also OPIE's in the family line, this time we have to go back Mary Sarah CURNOW, wife of William Ladner, mother & father of previously mentioned Francis & Charles Curnow Ladner. Charles Curnow [1834-1895], brother of Mary Sarah Curnow, married Harriet ENDIEN in Truro, 1854. Their 4th born , William married Susan Jane OPIE in Ballarat in 1884. Susan Jane's parents were, Francis OPIE [1829-1897] & Ann WILLIAMS [1833-1912]. Fairly remote I admit, but a coincidence none the less.

See the Francis Opie listing. Is there a connection with Tristam Opie and Sarah Dennis came c1863 and lived at Ballarat.

From on Friday, 25 June, 2010 then corrected Friday, 11 February, 2011

Hi Elizabeth, I am doing research into The Dillon Family.
I have a Mary Dillon who had a son in 1896 (George Laing Dillon) in Redfern NSW. His birth states 'illegitimate'. His marriage in 1956 states father as James Edward Laing (deceased) a Grocer as his occupation. His mother Mary Dillon was born in Braidwood in 1871. So the parents (if so) were about the same age 1871/1872.
Do you have anything else on James Edward LAING? Born to James Laing and Margaret Gordon.
Congratulations on your site, well done, Lesley Egen
on Friday, 11 February, 2011

found that my Mary Dillon went to New Zealand where 'her' James Laing came from. She and James had another child Kathleen Mary in 1897 (in NZ). James Laing and Mary Dillon finally married in 1904 (after death of his 1st wife), within 2 weeks of their marriage James died at the age of 37. Mary (Dillon) Laing died as result of a car accident in 1930. Both she and James are buried together in NZ.
The daughter Kathleen Mary 1st married in 1918 to Albert Dawson he died 1929, she remarried in 1930 to John Chapman he died 1951 and Kathleen Mary (Laing/Dawson/Chapman) died 1967. Her remains are also with her parents James Laing and Mary Dillon/Laing.
George Laing 1st married in NZ in 1922 and married 2nd wife in NSW (Aus) Brenda Harding in 1954. George died 1975 and Brenda has also died. They had no issue. I am also led to believe he had no issue in New Zealand either.
Kathleen Mary Laing/Dawson/Chapman left no trail of any issue either.
Lesley
