Northey Family Tree
BRENNAN MULLIGAN MOUNTJOY NORTHEY BOLAND HOOPER MARTIN O'NEILL HOME

My Northey ancestors came to Australia from Cornwall in the 1870s. They came to Australia looking for a new life as mining in Cornwall was suffering a huge downturn. Many Cornish people came to Australia during those times, and it was a surprise to me to discover how much of my ancestry was Cornish. My research into this family was greatly helped by joining CORNISH-GEN-D@rootsweb.com the Rootsweb mailing list. I would like to thank the many subscribers on this list who have helped me enormously in tracing this line of my family tree. I have now traced the family back to the early 1800s in Cornwall.

My Northey ancestors went to America for several years, returned to England and then went to Australia. A family story tells of John Pearce Northey, his wife Eliza Temby Northey and their children being met at the wharf in Australia by a male relative who shouted 'Welcome to God's own country! You'll like it better here!'. Certainly, they liked it enough to stay. They settled in New South Wales around the Brewarrina area. My branch of the family migrated to Western Australia in the late 1890s. Now we have many cousins in the New South Wales area and possibly further afield (maybe even New Zealand) who do not realise that we are related. I hope that this webpage will help to reunite members of this branch of my family tree.

This line of my family research has been a brick wall in the past. I therefore founded the Northey mailing list on Rootsweb and have compiled the research contributed by subscribers on another website. If you want to look at general Northey research go to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~navi/

I would love to hear from you.
