Thank you for your reply. This my first try at message boards.

I have been aware of the Guernsey SIBIRE for some time but so far have not found any connection.

Your list is a little late as the group I am looking into went to Austraia in the fitst wave late 1700 to early 1800's. The first wave came from Merton in Surrey or London.

So do you have anyone who went to England. I have found some SIBREE in France and Belgium 1600's.

Regards Cheers

Hi Roger,
Going on your dates of late 1700's to early 1800 you need to look in NSW (New South Wales, Australia)
If you google NSW BDM and search for your name variations you will find some records.
V18174359 1B/1817 SIBREE JOSEPH (f)JOSEPH (m)SARAH
V18184662 1B/1818 SIBREE REUBEN (f)THOMAS (m)SARAH

Also google NSW State Records and use 'keyname search' PLUS go to Indexes Online and check our Colonial Secretary Records.

TROVE (nla newspapers) could have notices for them.
