How wonderful that you have joined us. It is great to have that direct Quainton connection. Have your ancestors simply never moved away, or did someone come back?
I am descended from one of the two Australian lines. My great great grand father was Charles Edward King (1829, Aylesbury 1888 South Australia ), son of Edward King (1792 Quainton- 1881 Weedon) and Anne Layton (1793 Quainton- 1867, Aylesbury). CE King was a pioneering wheat and sheep farmer in South Australia and obviously felt such affection for his homeland that he named his farm property Aylesbury. The location is near Georgetown at http://maps. google.com. au/maps?f= q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=aylesbury, +georgetown+ sa&sll=-33.359782, 138.394089&sspn=0.240014, 0.485115&ie=UTF8&hq=aylesbury,&hnear=Georgetown+ SA&ll=-33.360804, 138.395162&spn=0.015001, 0.03032&t=h&z=16
Another family farm was called Wendover.
Your forename Mair seems to have a Welsh and Hebrew origin. Are there any connections in your family from these sources?
