From on Sun, 11 Apr 2004

I was trawling the web looking for any mention of the Lyte name and came across your Website. I was very interested to see in your family tree William Charles Lyte, from Jersey and his family. I would think that William Charles Lyte would be a descendent of Captain Thomas Lyte 1766-???? who had settled in Jersey, c1800. I wondered if you may have more information on William Charles i.e when did he arrive in Australia, etc.

My connection is through the elder brother of Captain Thomas Lyte, my 4xG Grandfather Henry Maximilian Lyte 1761-1834.

Two names in the index you sent are of particular interest and they are:
Charles Henry Lyte: born London 1836, died Victoria 1871?
Arthur Walter Lyte: born London 1846, died Melbourne 1878?
The above were brothers and the children of: Charles Maximilian Lyte, and Mary Ann Pitman, (my 3xGreat Grandparents)
Any info on the brothers i.e. Marriages, Children, etc would be appreciated.

Kind Regards, Stan
