At the moment I can't place where your family is connected. You could be descended from Siaosi (George) Hunkin who was born around 1844 at Leone, Tutuila, AS who left the family and emigrated to Thursday Island, Torres Strait, Australia (it's all on my website, www.glennperry.co.uk
) & he marr. Kirez Mageram in 1891 & had 9 children. Apart from one daughter (Jane) I have no idea what happened to the other 8. There is a descendant from Jane (Juliette Hubbard) which I've contacted to see if she can help. There is another called John Hunkin, but I'm not sure who exactly he's descended from. I assume you're not a member of the Hunkin website ?
