Australian Plaisteds

Well it has just gone 4.30am, so a short blog to say that I have more Australian contact, and it looks  like it is going to be very interesting.

Meet Mark.  This cousin has given me heaps of info, including a Will for Tabitha, who I never realised had gone to Australia, He also gav me Tabithas death cert and this stated that her dad Thomas was a Bootmaker.  So weird that.  He must of changed his job or built up enough revenue to buy the pub, I am sure we will findout one day.

Still trying to prove if our Thomas is Thomas John Plasted born in 1777 Shoreditch.  Never mind.  I am now hunting out the Will for Tabithas father to send to Mark and still waiting to see if I can get info about the Plaisted Winery.  Everyone is soooooooo  busy it takes a while.

Right im going again will update soon,

Australian Line

Well, in a few short months I will be adding to this once again.  I have decided, due to new contacts from Australia that I am going to trace all of Thomas Plaisted b. 1777, Shoreditch.......Still confirming that.....children who went to Australia.

I will put in what I know and have confirmed, up date what I have recently been given, amazing what you find out.  There is a lot i dotn know still, after thinking that is was only John Plaisted.b.1800 and his family and two nieces who went over with him in 1850, it now seems that one nieces Eliza Lydia Ewer may of already been out there with her parents and maybe ended up back in London fo rher education.....all unproven of course.  I do know that one of Johns sisters (Tabitha) died in, just goes to show I need to dig more deeply sometimes, not that I mind ben wrong, I just love getting new data and correcting things or helping others to correct their lines.

Looking forward to one day updating the family book with the Australian & New Zealand lines.  If anyone else has any other Info, please let me know.
