My name is Sharon Higgins .

Much of the information I had included here is from data provided by other family members including:

- "A Short History of Isaac and Sarah Smith" 1979 by Selwyn Smith

-Family notes from Dulcy and Eric Smith, Angela Bowler (nee Charlton) and Allen Higgins. 

-"Descendants of William Higgins" by Christine Philps. 

-Lyn Bendall (nee Flack and McLaughlan) has uploaded her own tree for the Bendall and the McLaughlan families and provided a huge amount of information and photos.

-Dean Cherry and Chris Austin have provided a huge amount of detail, and photos, on the Austin family

-Brian and Carl Brandon Strehlke have provided source documents and many photos of the Strehlke family, particularly the early Prussian data. 

Whilst there are many many family names in this tree the main families that I am focusing on are Smith/ Austin/ Lindsay, McLaughlan/ Aldridge, Higgins/ Strehlke, Spinley, Kerridge and Bowler/ Charlton/ Laws.  If you do have any information on these families, or any of the other families in this tree, that is not included here please do let me know
