Hi Jo,
It's great to hear from you!
I don't believe our families are linked with the Australian generations but I suspect we would find a linkage if we go back to the early to mid-18th century. My impression is that the County Durham and Northumberland Fryers are probably descended from the Yorkshire Fryer's who emigrated north during that century.
My great-grandfather, Thomas Fryer, born 1863 in Shildon, Co. Durham, emigrated to Australia in the mid-1880's. His uncle, another Thomas Fryer emigrated to the Victorian gold fields in the 1850's but doesn't appear to have married and had children. An aunt, Ann Crozier (nee Fryer) also emigrated in the 1850's with her husband Elias Crozier to the Victorian goldfields. I haven't found connections with other Fryer emigrants of those or later generations.
I would love to have a look at your family tree and am happy to share any further details with you.
Cheers, Cheryl
