-Lny Coy said, I have been for many many years trying to find the Davis (Davies) family from Alverstoke.  Thomas Davis married Catherine Flemming on 12 Aug 1822 Alverstoke, Hampshire - these were Church of England records. They had two children John - christened 16 July 1826 at Alverstoke and Charlotte christened 4 November 1827.

Thomas, his wife Catherine and their two children John and Charlotte and also a nephew John Davis sailed on the ship 'Parmelia' to the Swan River Colony of Western Australia leaving England in Feb 1829 and reaching here 1st June 1829. The Parmelia was the first ship carrying the free settlers to Western Australia. Charlotte Davis was reputed to be the first white female to set foot on the shores of the Swan River Colony. We have many memorials to her here in Western Australia.

Charlotte is my gt gt gt gt grandmother - I have been researching the Davis line for many years but have never had any success finding the parents and family of Thomas Davis and Catherine Flem(m)ing. Thomas Davis was the Government Blacksmith in the Swan River Colony and it is believed he might have worked in the Naval Dockyards at Portsmouth.

If you can give me any assistance I would be most grateful or could perhaps point me in the direction of a researcher who would be able to assist.

It is Western Australia's 175th Anniversary of Foundation this year - I am the Convenor of the Swan River Pioneers and we are holding many celebrations to honour these pioneers who braved their lives to establish a Colony here in Western Australia.

This family now has thousands of descendants here from Charlotte Davis, her brother John had no children. Nephew John Davis sadly drowned at the aged of 18 where a whaling boat on which he was crew overturned and the crew were lost.

Sally Wells asks, would you please add the following to your Family History page. Martha Isabella Chamberlain married John Ayling in Fareham 1850. The Aylings later ran Grange Farm, Rowner Gosport, Hampshire. Joseph Chamberlain ran Holbrook Farm during early-mid-late 1800's he was known as an "overseer of the poor"

Any information on these or other Chamberlains & Aylings in the area would be appreciated. Many thanks

-Hazel Rumball said I really enjoy readingall the snippets about Gosport. I am continuing to try and trace my late fathers family (Leslie Underwood Born 1912. His Parents were Walter and Violet Underwood ) and now know that his parents lived in Clifton Road in 1901.your site has given me an insight into his family.

- Chris Martin says, I am currently researching my family history, The  names I am researching are Unsted. John Unsted Married a Hannah Edwards In  Alverstoke. If you have anyone that can be of any help please could you forward  my e-mail address. Many thanks.

- Advises, John Unsted married Hannah Edwards in the December Quarter of 1869 in the District of Alverstoke Volume 2b Page 871. You can request a copy of their marriage cert on at a cost of 7. This will give you both John and Hannah's father's names and occupation. I did a quick search on and found a John & Hannah Unsted living in Sussex in 1871. (Added 6th May 2007)

- After reading the message on your website about Unsteds in the Sussex area my family are from Hastings and I have only ever known upto my grandads generation and would love to know more. please forward my email address to anyone who is interested in this family history. Katie Unsted If you want Katie’s email address contact Me and I will send it on (20/1/08)

- I found your web site after a search for information about Camper and Nicholson. I wonder if you know any more about my great great Uncle William Camper of Camper and Nicholson fame, He died I believe in 1867 shortly after retirement from Camper and Nicholson, but this is all I know about him from my family tree. There is no mention of his being married on the family tree. I am interested to know if you have any more information about him. My interest is simply that I enjoy sailing and found the link to him from my family tree compiled by a second cousin. A.P.Camper

Please advise whether you want your e-mail address added. If  not, I will not put it on. I will forward the information received to you.

Where no e-mail shown E-mail Me and I will pass on your message, please tell me whether you want me to pass on your e-mail address or not.
