The Descendants of Joseph & Martha Ellen Bretherton

Updated July 31, 2006

This page is dedicated to the descendants of Joseph & Ellen Bretherton

It has taken many years of research to get this family tree to this stage.
We are still looking for information and updating at every opportunity
Most of the descendants live in Australia and we hold a family reunion annually in Numurkah, Victoria on the first Saturday in October
Joseph was a brother to Bartholomew, Peter and Francis. All were Coach Builders. Bartholomew being the most famous.
The Australia descendants are Joseph,James, Francis and Richard
Joseph,James and Richard arrived in Melbourne in 1851 on the Lord Stanley out of Liverpool after leaving their widowed mother Fanny and sisters Ellen (Helen) and Ann. Francis came a few years later
The first reunion was held in Bendigo,Victoria in 1974 and since then the tradition has continued.
We have a wonderful day every year an we are still finding new family members. The family members that we have contacted are the descendants of Joseph and Francis

Any relevant information is gratefully received and passed on
