From on Wednesday, 21 March 2012
Thomas William Woonton’s son Andrew 1910-1985, married Evelyn Adamthwaite 1911-1993 and just to add to the mix, Frances Adamthwaite 1872-1938, married Alfred Davis and one of their sons, John Davis, married Irene Woonton 1895-1986
The other connection is that of Smith / Adamthwaite / Woonton..
1804 Joseph Smith & Mary Ann Hickling.. amongst their 9 children were 1842 Clarence & 1845 Emma.
Clarence married Mary Ann Boyd & their daughter, 1868 Mabel Smith married 1873 Arthur Adamthwaite whose daughter Evelyn is the one I mentioned as married 1910 Andrew Woonton.
Clarence’s sister was of course Emma as married to Joseph Adamthwaite and their son of course, was the just described 1873 Arthur so Arthur in fact, married his cousin.


5. Wm Richd Woonton 1888 #1703 wed 1911 #8726 to Olive Maude Adamthwaite 1887 #5913 - 1974 #9372 aged 87, lived at Ultima then at Sea Lake

From Euan & Beth Walker, on Sat, 6 Nov 2004, email bounced 21 May 2009
Hi
Just browsing the net! My grandmother was Olive Maude Adamthwaite who married William Richard Woonton. I have lots of history on the Woonton side including a handwritten chart of the complete family up until my generation. I also have the Adamthwaite Centenary book and handwritten letters from Holderness Adamthwaite whilst he was overseas in WW1 (also Alf Davis letters) - handed down via Olive. My sister has returned from Belgium and visited Menin Gate. She took photos of the Davis grave and the Adamthwaite entry on the Menin Gate Memorial at Ypres, Belguim. I am happy to share anything with you.
Cheers, Euan Walker, Son of Grace Woonton and Reg Walker

Thomas Worroll


From on Monday, 20 September, 2010
Dear Elizabeth,
Thanks for this excellent page.
I have been looking at the information on Thomas Worroll. His wife travelled to Australia on the Hornet in 1857 – the same boat as him. She travelled under her maiden name. I think she was to work as a maid, and was listed as single. Whoever she was due to work for would have had a surprise, not only was she married, but her first child, Charles Worroll was born on 16 October 1857 (Births in the district of Geelong in the Colony of Victoria Certificate no 120 in 1857). Charles Worroll is my great-grandfather, and Thomas, my great great-grandfather.
Regards, Leith Woodall
