My name is Janice Ritchie
and I started this site.
Welcome to my Ritchie Marsden family tree. What started as a bit of fun has turned into a wonderful hobby, with a different story around every corner. I have found 6 convicts shipped to Australian soil, all on my father's side, and men of wealth and power on my mother's side....not necessarily in the same century, certainly not in mine.
Most of the information recorded here about the Ponsonby, Fane, Child and Child-Villiers families comes from the book 'The Child Family. London Bankers and Others' which was researched and written by J A Ritchie.
My other little interest is the German settlers of Tunstall, near Lismore NSW, from the 1850's. My families are Griesinger, Marzol and Goodsell connecting with Scheibel, Estreich, Perry, Reis and others.
