My tree also has Keenan's, Berry and McKenzie surnames; all from the Cumberland, ENG area. I had not heard of the Berry and McKenzie lines immigrating to Australia but one never knows.
My Keenan line involves Joe Keenan who was very involved in the Union movement in NSW.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards from Western NY
Would you mind telling me who the Simson member of your family is? I have a pretty good history dating back several generations and would like to see if I can match it up with your Simson.
Sorry, I don't find any Battens. I also checked a distant cousin's tree who has more Watkins. No luck there either.
Good luck in you search
thank you very much for your reply
there is never ever any harm in asking
