It has become a popular occurance to admit if your ancestors were convicts. I cannot attest to that with mine. On my maternal side they were Welsh, then further back French, as you will observe by the surname. On my father's side, sadly I know very little. No photos or contact, a mystery?
These are my mother's parents, (my gandparent's)Samuel and Agnes Annie Charles.
My grandfather died when I was eight years old. I still feel sad to have lost him at my early age. My grandmother lived to see one of my small children. She was a sweet gentle Christian woman. I loved both dearly.
Seated in the Sulky are my mother's maternal grandparents (my great grandparents).
Great grandfather Evan Cozens` was born in 1831 at Havenford, West Penbrokshire, South Wales.
Great grandmother Margaret (Morris) Cozens`, born 1846 in Monmouth Shire, Wales.
They married on 4th February 1869 and migrated to Victoria, Australia.
Agnes Annie Cozens`, my grandmother (above) was born there in 1888.
