* The Debenham Family of Australia*

Updated January 25, 2011

John M Debenham was born 1520 in Sapiston. His descendants can be traced reasonably well to my great great grandfather Edmund who was born 1st January 1833 in Harleston, Norfolk, U.K. Migrated to Australia approx. 1855, finally settling in Frederickton NSW. Always keen to learn more and gather as much information, books, charts, photos as possible about the Debenham's from our origins in Norfolk to the current period including the "Debenham Dozen" I will be only to pleased to correspond by either e-mail or post and share the information i have gathered. Also looking for any help / links to information relating to the period from 1265, Lucas Debenham to 1500's. I have been collecting information on the Debenham family for the last 15 years and i can reasonably trace back to 1265, although there is a break in the 1500's when a lot of records were destroyed in the England fires. There is also a cross reference in some records between the name Debnam and Debenham in the records from 1265 to 1500's.
As far as i can ascertain, there were four lines of Debenham's that arrived in Australia, they were; Bowral NSW, Frederickton NSW (my line), Sydney NSW and Forbes NSW.
Always looking for information, photos on all aspects from the United Kingdom to Australia.
