The Froggatt Family Website

Family History Pages

Welcome:- For many years now I have been interested in the history of the Froggatt Family from Brewhouse Yard. In the beginning we did not know the family had lived there: in fact we did not know anything about the family at all. My grandfather William Froggatt had left home aged 16 and boarded a sailing ship for Melbourne, Australia. As far as we can tell he was a willing passenger (at least his passage was not paid for by the Crown). His younger brother James followed him a year later.

Along the way we have discovered many branches to the family tree - Goodliffe, Goldsworthy, Hutchison, Abercrombe - my father found the descendents of six siblings he knew nothing about and I have made contact with "cousins" all over the world.

Also presented here are various aspects of the family history of the Benton, Keith and Moroney families that I married into.
