  • Welcome Mair 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...

  • Hi all Thanks for the updates Michael and Andy. I am still recovering from my hard disk failure 4 weeks ago. Had to take my CPU with me to Malaysia for warranty repair. Just got back in the early hours this morning, hand-carrying my repaired (almost new) CPU. Will take me some time to load windows and all other programs and transfer my backup data, so, not ready for Michael's big...

  • It sounds a bit like we are heading towards a One-Name-Study, at least for Buckinghamshire Kings?? Does anyone know anything about the One Name Study guild or whatever they are? I always found it a neat coincidence that the residence of the Queen is Buckinghamshire Palace , but it’s not in Buckinghamshire, while we work our way through generations of Kings from Buckinghamshire...

  • Hi all Michael asked about some famous Kings AAT Kings Travel was begun by the one of the South Australian Kings who descended from Charles Edward King and Maria Hunt. Brian Welbourne King (b1929-) is a member of this line and has a substantial web presence. He is a grandson of CE King’s son Mark King and son of Charles Leonard King who is I think the one who started Kings...

  • (Please excuse me if this information is already known to you all) Found 2 sites with some of our Quainton folk: Mark Warner’s tree about Quainton people at www.familyorigins.com/users/w/a/r/Mark-J-Warner/FAMO3-0001/index.html including Charlotte King, daughter of Edward King and Susanna Grace. Charlotte married a Bunting and they emigrated to USA . The Thorn family tree of...

  • In April Neale Ferguson posted the immigration record into Sydney of Thomas Layton King (the elder) and family, including 3 year old Edward and the infant Mary Anne, as in “ KING Mary Anne 34 Maria 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and family Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 607; Reel 2461, [4/4918]” (The Mary Anne shown on the passenger list is registered at birth as May Anne.) Does...

  • Hi all I have finally got round to scanning the King family history written in 1939 by Mark King (1862-1954), son of Charles Edward King (1829-1888) and Maria Hunt (1826-1913) - South Australian Kings. Charles Edward King is the brother of Thomas Layton King (snr) whom we have been discussing lately. I have uploaded the 7 pages as separate .jpg files emtitled Family History by Mark...

  • HI all Another interesting King link has come to light. I started looking at Ann King (b 1826-1913 daughter of Edward King and Ann Layton), m Provis Thorne (1831-1915). One of their children, Jane Thorne married William Deverell b 1886 at Aylesbury. Then, I started tracking the Deverells, as you do, and found on Genes Reunited a number of people with the Deverells in their tree...

  • Yes, I’ll take all the daughters’ married surnames too. Re Aylesbury, my second cousin nee Brenda Clark (grand-daughter of Annie King) who lives here in Perth told me that family members did visit the property over the years. It has probably gone the way of so many pastoral properties – bought over by the large pastoral companies and amalgamated. So the house may not be used...
