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,



  1. Hi Claire

    My 3*great grandmother was Sally Plaisted (1826-1900). She was the daughter of John Plaisted (1800-1858) and Ann Green (1801-1882). Sally married Samuel Hughes.

  2. Hi Anne

    I have the family tree for my husbands Plaisted line which also runs through John via his son Arthur who ended up in New Zealand, Sally was his sister. I would love to be able to fill in the gaps in Sally's line. I will have to look at what I have and if you would like to share/swap please let me know. You can find me on Facebook in a group called "Are you a Plaisted" In this group there is a file with a copy of Arthur H Plaisted's family history book available for download. I also have my own page called Reunionbooks4u where there is other Plaisted information and pictures.

    1. Hi Claire

      Great to hear back from you.

      Much of my family history is on but in a private tree. I would be delighted to share information with you. Much of my information comes from a book called Cherry Stones by Helen Hudson, a cousin on the Hughes side of the family.

      Best wishes
