I've been sent a copy of the notes of the late Grahame Fooks, which I've added to and set out on a family tree. My interest is that I have been putting together for many years biographies on Members of the Marine Board of South Australia. Thomas Lipson, South Australia's first administrator of Marine Affairs, married Elizabeth Emma nee Fooks at Melcombe Regis, Jul. 30th. 1812. She was the daughter of William Fooks (c.1756 - 1844?) of the Devon Militia, & Ann Williams MacKenzie (c.1759 -1832?). The Williams also appear in the family of Thomas Lipson's brother Matthew Lipson on Portsea, Hampshire, and of his son in law Rev. Henry Inman of North Scarle, Lincolnshire.

I have quite a lot on Thomas Lipson, his naval career from records at the Public Records Office, London, and sources here in South Australia; along with his family here, interstate, and overseas.

In regard to the Berjew family, it would appear the line descends from Rev. John Berjew, of Bristol, who was ordained a deacon in 1717, and in 1719 was serving as curate at Sherborne. Ordained the same year, he was appointed rector of St. Michael's Over Crompton in 1726, remaining as such until his death. John was buried in the churchyard of St. Michael's Over Crompton, Jan. 27th. 1744.

His son Samuel, born circa 1728, possibly was the rector of Upper Cerne, and in 1809 was the Commissioner of Land Tax for Cerne Abbis. At Stoke Giffard, Bristol, Samuel married Chatherine nee Wiltshire, Jul. 16th. 1761. Samuel was buried at St. Michael's, Upper Cerne, Oct. 18th. 1820, his wife Catherine Feb. 12th. 1826.
