Family History Pages
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.
