My name is Paul Fookes and I started this site with my wife Fran.
This site was created using  It started when we realised that our family history and the narrative was being lost to time and dementia. History is who we are and how we connect.   If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me. 

We look forward to building  our family tree and helping others to piece together their's. To show links to other family trees we have included "*Link" after the surname of the individual. The information on those links is shown in the notes together with the URL.  To ensure that we can track photographs, source documents and other information we have started to label them as follows:

Individual/ Family/ Locality ID, Log Serial ID, Date registered (YYYMMDD),  Short Name. [EG: '001 - 01- 20XX0914 - Paul Fookes]

There are two main parts to our tree Fookes, Richards, Deamer and Henderson, Byrne, Bergin.  Hope you enjoy the journey as much as we do putting it together.  Patrick Costigan is currently undertaking a lot of work in Ireland with respect to the Bergin family tree.  Roz May is doing work on the Byrne family tree.

We used a lot of work that was originally done by the late John Appleby of Great Horksley, Essex England, verified by Wendy Warne of British and the work of Christopher Fookes of Grays Point, NSW, Australia.  Key information has also been added from other family trees for the linked person.  We have added the Coolah and Cassilis connection to the Tree. We are currently digitising a lot of the early Fookes Deamer photographs because they are starting to perish through age, and insect activity.  Hopefully we can get most of them before it is too late.

Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 577 names in our family site. The earliest event is the death of Thomas FOAKES (1719). The most recent event is the death of Dorothy Grace (Dorrie) FOOKES (Sep 27 2014).
The site was last updated on Oct 20 2014, and it currently has 50 registered member(s).  If you wish to become a member too, please click here.
