My connection to the London line in Australia, is through William Albert London, the son of Patrick John London and Sarah Halligan of England.
William Albert London married Diana Riley in Australia and their son, William John London married Matilda Ann Mitchell. Their daughter, Priscilla Georgina London married Arthur Edward Helmrich.
William Albert London is my 3 x great grandfather.
This page has the following sub pages.
- Patrick John London – (1770 – 1810) & Sarah (1780 -1818). New South Wales Corps & Irish Rebel Defenders.
- William Albert London – (1809 – 1877) ” Bill the Native ” and Diana Riley (1824 – 1905)
- William John London (1846 – 1932) and Matilda Ann Mitchell (1850 – 1918) – A fine orchard
- Priscilla Georgina London, Helmrich, Vesperman. (1891 – 1972) – To Malaya and back
Thank you for writing such a great history of the Londons. I knew a little of Priscilla from my Mother in Law – Helen Bruce Nairn (daughter of Lilly May Mitchell/London and William Nairn) I knew that Priscilla had moved to Malaya, but didn’t know what a colourful life she had lead.
Thank you for your kind words Helen, you are very welcome.
Was wondering if you had a connection to D’arcy Kenneth London, born at Kurrajong NSW in 1896 to Henry and Mary Jane London nee Turner –
Distantly I would have but my branch left the Kurrajong in the 1920s. However, if you look up the Riley and London pages here on the website you may find some helpful information. Warm regards.
