Some "Whitten Ancestor" Stories by Jill McCann - A GREAT read
I am Tim Hobson, son of Beth, daughter of Alfred Giles, son of Anthony WHITTEN who came to Australia about the same time as his siblings Edward, Ann, Joseph & Henry in the 1860s during the Irish potato famine.
I am also Tim Hobson, son of Allan, son of Sydney HOBSON who came to Australia in 1910 & Sydney's Father, Edward "Ted" who arrived about 1924

I have (with Alan Alderton [who sadly passed away 14 Feb 2011], Lexie Prince & many others) been trying to verify & get some information on the Whitten family history in a location where others can check out the details & comment accordingly.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information about their own family.
Anyone with photos or anecdotes would help expand this presentation.
PLEASE let me know if there is ANYTHING incorrect, missing or there are any
little glitches made because I am human, and you would like them fixed.
This site would be a waste if the information could not be corrected.
