Just recently I've been doing some research on the Rounds family.

So far this is what I've got:

Charles Pickering b. 1814, Sydney, NSW, Australia married Burekaria Tabuakovei. Their daughter Frances/Fanny Pickering married Charles Rounds in Nov 1856. Charles Rounds was born about 1836 in New Bedford, Bristol, MA, USA.

Charles Rounds and Fanny Pickering had 10 children: Charles, Louisa, Joseph, George, Josephine, Thomas, William, Arthur, John, and a nameless child.

I've got records for Charles Rounds II (married Helena Ryder), Thomas (married Mariana Hicks), William (m. Rosalini Danford) and the last nameless child who I think is Issac Rounds (married Jessie Dunn)

Other records I have that I cannot link to any of the 10 children are:

David Pius Rounds, b. 1912, father Joseph Rounds. Married Magaret Chambers. Three children: Melton, Joseph Michael and John William.

Issac Rounds, b. 1908. Parents: John Rounds and Rose OR Rosie Maria Morel.

Josephine Rounds, b. 1800. Married: Benjamin Wise on 2 May 1922.

I cannot link my great grandfather, David Rounds (b. abt. 1900) who married Ruth O'Connor around 1920.

I've looked up Adventurous Spirits Sample of Fiji settlers and the Cyclopedia of Fiji 1907. Only the former have entries of Charles Pickering and Charles Rounds, although more information on Pickering which included citations I have to follow up on.

I would be happy to hear from anyone who has the Rounds or Pickering family tree. I know that a Rounds family tree has be done but I don't know how to get a copy of it.

Also would anyone know how far the Registrations Office keeps records. Also recently they have been opening early and closing late instead of 8.30am - 4.30pm they now operate from 7am - 6pm.

I managed to track which Rounds family has a list of 4 generations of Rounds from Charles Rounds and Fanny Pickering. Will be getting a copy later.

I've also discover more about Charles Pickering (Fanny Pickering's father) who was born in 1814 in Sydney, NSW. His parents were Charles Pickering and Catherine Burn (Byrne), convicts from England and Ireland sentenced in the early 1800's to Australia. I will soon be getting more information about them from their other child, Mary Ann, GGG grandson.

I would like to hear from anyone who is a descendent of Charles Pickering II.

I have David Rounds married to Ruth O'Connor as the 10th child of Charles Rounds and Fanny Pickering. They had Rose (married Pickering), Liza (married Streeter), Cecilia (married Whippy) and Te? (married Stewart).
I also have Charles Rounds II married to Esther Ryder. Children: Isaac (married Jessie Dunn), Joan, Agnes (married Archie Underwood), Joseph (married Fanny Work), Louisa (spinster) and Anamaria? (married Charlie Pickering).
David Rounds married to Margaret Chambers is the son of Joseph Rounds (son of Charles 1 and Fanny Pickering) and Louisa Williams. Josephine Rounds married to Ben Wise is the daughter of William Rounds and Rosaline Danford.
Hope this helps. Your information has helped me so much.

I'm doing research for my brother-in-law. His grandmother was Annie Rounds b c 1895, who from the IGI I take to be a daughter of Joseph Rounds and Louisa Williams. (Have ordered films from LDS to confirm this). any information appreciated.

Hi Dulcie, Pam and Megan,

I've just been reading the messages on the Rounds/Pickering message board which, I've put on file to attend to later.

The CD I have is a copy of Bruce's records, so I'm presuming the information is correct.

My brothers Bruce and Dennis and myself have lineage through David Pious Rounds and Margaret Chambers and I'll update that info sometime soon.

Keep it coming girls, and Marcel. It's getting very exciting (& interesting re: our ancestors personal history).

Lolomas, Anne

Hopefully by now you would have received the link to the Rounds Family Tree. If not let me know and i'll e-mail it to you. Like Anne says it is an excellent site that was created by the late Bruce Rounds and continued on by his brother Denis. Good luck in your search.
