Hi!
I've traced my Australian family back to William Ransom, b.1826 in Ware, Hertfordshire, Eng. and his wife Emma Maddick, b. 1825 in Devonshire, Eng. Can anyone help me with information about the ancestors of either of these two. William was sent to Aust. as a convict in about 1846.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Ian,

I too have the name Ransom(e) in Australia and was wondering if maybe we had a link between our families ? Please check out http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~kemp/index.html and let me know if there are any links.

Regards,

Andrew

Hi andrew i have just checked your site and we are related through Harry and Katherine Ransom.
On another site in Rootsweb the parents of Harry Ransom are Isaac and Margaret Carter. I m not sure but i thought they were Robert and Jacobina Ransom (Littlejohn nee Bruce)
Can you confirm for me
thanks jill

Dear Jill,

A quick check of the indexes shows that the parents of Harry Ransom who married Katherine Culmsee were indeed Robert Ransom and Jacobina Anderson Littlejohn.

With a reasonably common name of Harry Ransom, I can indeed see how this confusion might arise.

You mentioned that you are directly related to this family? Please contact me directly to discuss our common family.

Kind regards,
Andrew
